Reviews for the HP ProBook 6545b

The HP ProBook 6545b has rock solid security, decent discrete graphics, a fantastic spill-resistant keyboard, and an array of legacy ports you won’t find on most other small business notebooks. However, you can get a lighter, more stylish system for a lower price. The more attractive HP ProBook 4510s is 0.2 pounds lighter and starts at a mere $559, though you’ll probably want one of the more expensive $719 or $829 configurations (which have Core 2 Duo processors).

More affordable and less flashy than HP’s EliteBook line of PCs is the ProBook line, aimed at small- and medium-size businesses. The 15.6-inch ProBook 6545B (a slight improvement over its cousin, the ProBook 4510S) is a practical, functional choice for cost-conscious business users. With its competitive price, strong performance, and full suite of business features (some typically reserved for pricier machines) this budget notebook means business.

Comment

ATI Radeon HD 4200: Onboard graphics adapter (RS880M chipset) with UVD2 (PIP support) and DX 10.1 support (compared to the older HD 3200). Beware, possibly no 2D acelleration in Windows XP (as the HD3200).

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

M520: Entry level dual core CPU by AMD which features an integrated memory controller (400MHz DDR2) and is based (partially?) on the K10 core. The performance should be most of the times compareable to a 2.0 Celeron Dual Core / Pentium (sometimes even to a 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.


2.7 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
