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.
60% HP ProBook 450 G2 review
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.

HP ProBook 450 G2-L3Q26EA

Formal and sleek-looking; the HP ProBook 450 G2 Notebook certainly highlights the ProBook name. The entire chassis comes in dark grey with the interior finished in brush metal. The top cover has a matte look with only the HP logo standing out in gloss. Fluid lines and curved edges are certainly echoed all around the notebook's silhouette, the full sized tile keyboard comes in dark grey and the low profile look is maintained. Like any professional notebook, the HP ProBook 450 G2 Notebook comes in various customizable specifications. At the top end of the spectrum there is a 15.6 inch FHD anti-glare LED-backlit screen, an Intel Core i7-5500U clocked at 2.4 GHz with Intel HD Graphics 5500, up to 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3L SDRAM, an AMD Radeon R5 M255 GPU with either 1 GB or 2 GB dedicated VRAM. Users can also select from a vast range of storage options ranging from 200 GB hard drives to 120 GB M.2 SSDs. Other features include an optional Blu-ray optical drive, two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI out, a VGA port and a 720p HD webcam. Audio quality is good with DTS Sound+ driving the integrated stereo speakers.

Office all-rounder. The ProBook 450 G3's assets are found in low temperature development, quiet operating noise, decent input devices, and a good battery life. However, the matte, Full HD screen is a shortcoming. The total bundle is throughout affordable at a price of approximately 640 Euros (~$701). A Windows operating system is not preloaded.
HP ProBook 450 G3 / 455 G3 review – what a budget business notebook should look like
Source: Laptop Media English
Quite frankly, we weren’t surprised by the ProBook at all since the review of the 14-inch model. Our opinion of the product remains unchanged and it’s mostly positive. We are happy with the build quality, the good choice of materials and overall design. All of this make up for a reliable, sturdy and elegant product which is rarely found in this price range. The chassis also holds four USB ports on top of all other standard connectivity options and, of course, doesn’t lack the much needed good typing experience offering excellent keyboard and touchpad usability.

HP reviews


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

AMD Radeon HD 8750M: Mid-range graphics card based on the GCN architecture.

Intel HD Graphics 520: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on some Skylake CPU models (15 W ULV series).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 4600:

Integrated processor graphics card found on a number of Haswell CPU models. Offers varying clock speeds depending on the CPU.

Intel HD Graphics 5500: Integrated graphics card (GT2) in the Core processors of the Broadwell U-series (15 W TDP). 

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i5:

3230M: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based dual-core, includes HD 4000 GPU, core clock 2.6 - 3.2 GHz

4200M: Haswell-based dual-core processor clocked at 2.5 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.1 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.

5200U: Broadwell-based ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core processor for notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5500 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.

6200U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

5500U: Broadwell-based ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core processor for notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5500 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.

2.1 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.

2.3 kg:


78.32%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
