Reviews for the HP ProBook 6560b

60% HP ProBook 6560b (LW954PA) business laptop

Because of its size and weight, the 15.6in ProBook should be considered only if you want a desktop replacement-style notebook that you'll rarely have to take on the road with you. It's quite heavy, it doesn't have USB 3.0, it doesn't make use of switchable graphics and it could use better input devices, as well as 64-bit Windows by default.
