Reviews for the HP ProBook 6540b

HP ProBook 6540b: Business Reliability
Source: Inside HW English
HP's ProBook 6540b isn't your typical notebook, not with its dimensions and weight. It's a strong and reliable office computer which is destined to spend most of its lifetime on the working desk. Although it lacks the finish of EliteBook series' models, its performance places it into the same category.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4550: The HD 4550 is a faster clocked HD 4530 and therefore entry level graphics card. It was substituted by the HD 5430 with the same clock rates.

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

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.


2.762 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.
