15 Reasons For

Good Brand

Medium processor core notebook PCs produced by HP have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all portable PCs (not just medium processor core notebook PCs) and found that HP also has good ratings across its entire range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This portable PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on portable PCs of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Four SATA Connectors

The HP ProBook 450 is a four SATA connector notebook PC. Most of the other laptops that are a comparable age to the ProBook 450 only have between two and three SATA connectors.

Chart Edit

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The ProBook 450 supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than the 133MHz processor memory clock speed supported by most laptops that were released more than a year ago. In addition, this laptop supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. Across all comparable spec laptops that have been available for around the same time as the ProBook 450 the memory clock speeds supported by processor ranges from 133MHz to 1,866MHz.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The ProBook 450 has a better storage medium than most medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for around the same time as it. This laptop has an SSD storage medium, whereas most medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to it have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.

An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage medium across all portable PCs of a comparable age and spec to the ProBook 450.

The worst storage medium amongst similar types of laptop is HDD.

Other notebook PCs that have an SSD storage media currently available that you might also want to look at include a cheaper laptop such as the T450[pl_2899072_price], or the T450[pl_2899072_price] both from Lenovo or you might consider a higher rated laptop such as the Asus UX301LA[plb_3012206_price].

If the storage medium of this medium processor core notebook PC is not good enough for you then you might also want to consider the DELL Latitude 15 E5550[plb_2701391_price] (SSD).

I love the pro book series. Solid construction, made to last, great performance and tend to last many years
It has driverhardware problems
The more recent Bios update and the latest drivers from HP plus the latest drivers from Intel for Bluetooth and Wifi. Then disable power management on the Bluetooth and Wifi will make Windows 8.1 run
Let's just say I gave up on Windows 7
There are no cons
Only downside is the screen has a reflective finish so if you are on in a well lit room you can sometimes see yourself. Not the biggest concern but more of a warning to those that don't like this
