82% HP ProBook 450 G2 Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
With stamina. The ProBook 450 G2 attracts buyers with its low heating, low system noise, good input devices, and long battery runtimes. The display is a major weakness. In addition, HP charges a steep price for the computer.

Source: Expert Reviews English
The HP ProBook 450 G2 is a sturdy business laptop with reasonable performance and a good keyboard, which is about as much as you can ask from a cheap business laptop. If your needs are modest, this is a great buy. Otherwise, spend £100 more and you could buy the Chillblast Akira, which has a dedicated graphics card and a Full HD screen.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
