Reviews for the HP Probook 6360b
Stylish & Affordable. HP promotes its ProBook B series with these words. In the following in-depth review, we test the smallest member of the ProBook B family, the 13 inch 6360b, to see what it has to offer.

The HP ProBook 6360b (Best Deal: $949.99 at neweggbusiness.com) is a respectable contender in the 13.3-inch business laptop contest, with responsive performance and a keyboard that narrowly tops that of the Editors' Choice Toshiba Portege R835-P88. But its extra pound and a half of weight, and lack of HDMI and USB 3.0, make it hard to recommend over the Toshiba R835-P88. It's not always hip to be square.

You do sacrifice a few features compared to more expensive Sandy Bridge models in the 13-inch category such as a slightly faster processor, lack of USB 3.0 ports, a backlit keyboard and added thickness, but some would argue that the tradeoff is justified as you get an optical drive, 54mm ExpressCard slot, VGA-out and a better trackpad/buttons -- not to mention the ProBook's superior autonomy. As always, it simply boils down to your individual needs. If you want a capable business class notebook and don't care about how chic it is, the $750 ProBook is worth considering. Should you require a bit more processing power or desire a thinner, lighter and more modern looking machine, the rotund ProBook won't make your short list of potential buys.

There is no dedicated graphics card in the HP ProBook 6360b, which means you have to settle for integrated graphics. Because of that, you can count out playing any of today's 3D games, but it is good enough for some video editing and watching HD content online. The included six-cell battery will provide about 5:30-6:30 hours of battery life, which is about average for other laptops of similar caliber.

At times, the laptop industry seems like it's in a design standstill compared with the fast-paced worlds of smartphones and tablets. The solid, no-surprises HP ProBook 6360b is a well-priced 13-inch laptop with up-to-date specs, but it's nothing that a consumer couldn't get in a better-looking design somewhere else.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
