+9 More reasons for
Has a Front Camera
The Probook 470 G0 has a front camera. Most of the other laptops of a comparable type and age to the Probook 470 G0 also have a front camera.
1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
The Probook 470 G0 supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than most comparable spec portable PCs that were launched around the same time as it. Most many processor core laptops that have been around for around the same time as it support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed.
This laptop's memory clock speeds supported by processor (1,600MHz) is in fact the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across all many processor core laptops that were released around the same time as the Probook 470 G0.
Across comparable types of laptop the worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor is 133MHz.
AC Cable Included
This notebook PC has an AC cable included, which is typical of many many processor core laptops that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
L3 Processor Cache
This notebook PC has a L3 processor cache, which is typical of many portable PCs of this age and spec.

4 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
This laptop has an HDD storage medium, which is the most commonly found storage medium on comparable spec portable PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as it. 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.
There are a number of other portable PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available which you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Asus N56VJ.
Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen
Most many processor core laptops that were launched more than two years ago do not have a touch sensitive screen. The Probook 470 G0 is no exception to this as it too does not have a touch sensitive screen.
Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
At only 1,024 megabyte, the HP Probook 470 G0 has a very small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other notebook PCs of a comparable type and age to the Probook 470 G0. The average discrete graphics adapter memory of many processor core laptops that were released more than two years ago is 2.4GB, and the discrete graphics adapter memory range from 1GB to 8.2GB.
At 2.9 kilograms, the Probook 470 G0 is quite heavy compared to most of the other many processor core laptops that have been available for more than two years. Laptops that were released more than two years ago have weights of between 430g and 4.8kg.
