A laptop for business users on a tight budget is the HP ProBook 450 G2. It is a well-built machine with a nice keyboard, and both business and leisure users should be satisfied with its performance.
Design and Screen
The HP ProBook 450 G2 has outstanding body construction and a rubberized coating on the back of the lid, measuring 375 x 262 x 25.5 millimeters. It appears as though a dark, brushed metal has been employed for the keyboard area’s substance.
This one shouldn’t be too heavy to tote around at 2.2 kg. The business notebook from HP has a great chiclet-style keyboard, which makes typing a pleasure.
The 15.6-inch screen of the HP ProBook 450 G2 has LED backlighting and anti-glare technology. According to the setup of the system, either 1366 x 768 pixels or 1920 x 1080 pixels are available as the screen resolution.
Performance-wise, the HP ProBook 450 G2 won’t let down many users thanks to its potent Intel Core i3, Core i5, or Core i7 processor that uses hyper threading technology. The speeds of the various processor configurations range from 1.7GHz to 2.4GHz.
An integrated Intel HD Graphics or AMD Radeon RS M255 Graphics processor handles graphics. Either 4GB or 8GB of DDR3 RAM are included with the HP ProBook 450 G2. Although it must be acknowledged that this is not a device for playing the newest games because it is intended for business users, it should be able to handle games reasonably well.
Depending on their preferences, buyers will be able to run either Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) or Windows 8.1 Pro on the computer.
The HP ProBook 450 G2 has an integrated fingerprint scanner and a 500GB, 5400rpm SATA hard drive for added security. The provided 44WHr battery was tested and found to have a nearly six-hour lifespan.
The laptop has two USB 3.0 ports, four USB ports overall, and an integrated HD webcam with optional Lync support. The HP ProBook 450 G2 has Intel Wireless LAN (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac) and Bluetooth 4.0. DTS Audio is in charge of the audio.
