The HD type of the this notebook PC are Not supported, which is the most commonly found HD type on laptops of this age and type.
Only HDD Storage Medium
This laptop has an HDD storage medium, which is the most frequently found storage medium on notebook PCs of this type and age. HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative laptops that have an HDD storage media currently available including the Asus X555LA, or the DELL Latitude 15 3550 (£379.98) which is cheaper.
Laptops with a better storage medium that might also be worth looking at include the Acer Aspire V3 (Hybrid-HDD) which is also cheaper.
Only 1366 X 768 Pixels Display Resolution

Laptops with a higher display resolution that might be worth considering include the Acer Aspire E5-771 (1920 x 1080).
Quite Small Battery Capacity
The average battery capacity of similar spec laptops that have been on the market for a comparable time to the ProBook 450 is 3,700mAh, and the battery capacities range from 37mAh to 9,300mAh. The ProBook 450 has a very small battery capacity (only 47 milliamperes * hour) compared to most of the other medium processor core laptops that were released one year ago.
+3 More reasons against
Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
The ProBook 450 has a quite small discrete graphics adapter memory (only 1,024 megabyte) compared to most of the other portable PCs of this age and type.

Only 4 Bluetooth Version
This notebook PC supports a 4 Bluetooth version, which is the most frequently supported Bluetooth version on portable PCs of this age and spec.
6 Other reasons to consider the HP ProBook 450
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when HP released the ProBook 450.
Average Screen Size
The ProBook 450 has a relatively average screen size (15.6 inches) compared to most of the other medium processor core laptops that have been on the market for a similar time to the ProBook 450.
We compared this notebook PC to all the other 15.6" portable PCs and we think the HP ProBook 650 (£774.00), and the Acer Aspire E5-571 which is cheaper is also worth considering.
With a battery life of 9.3 hours, the ProBook 450 has a relatively average battery life compared to most of the other medium processor core laptops that are a similar age to the ProBook 450.
Portable PCs with a longer battery life that might also be worth looking at include the Latitude 14 E5450 (£531.99) (14.5h), or the Latitude 14 E5450 (£632.75) (14.5h) both from DELL.
+4 Other reasons
Average Total Storage Capacity
The ProBook 450 has a relatively standard total storage capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other portable PCs of a comparable age and type to the ProBook 450.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 500GB total storage capacity laptops currently available including cheaper notebook PCs such as the Aspire V3, or the Aspire E5-571 both from Acer or the HP ProBook 650 (£774.00).
If this HP portable PC total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Toshiba Satellite C70D-B (750GB and cheaper).
With a weight of 2.3 kilograms, the ProBook 450 has a fairly typical weight compared to most of the other laptops of a comparable age and type to the ProBook 450.
Laptops with a heavier weight that might be worth looking at include the ProBook 450 (2.1kg and cheaper), or the ProBook 650 (£774.00) (2.3kg and cheaper) both from HP or the Acer Aspire E5-571 (2.5kg and cheaper).
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the HP ProBook 450 has a fairly standard internal memory compared to most of the other laptops of a similar type and age to the ProBook 450.
We compared this notebook PC to all the other 4GB internal memory notebook PCs and we think cheaper portable PCs such as the Acer Aspire V3 is also worth considering.
If you are looking for a portable PC with a bigger internal memory then you might also want to consider the Asus X555LA (6GB) which is also cheaper.

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
