HP has launched the ProBook 445 G6 in the Indian market. The ProBook 445 G6 is powered by AMD Ryzen Zen+ APUs and offers a range of CPU, RAM, and storage customization options along with HP's suite of enterprise tools for data and identity protection.

The HP ProBook 445 G6 and 455 G6 were announced earlier this year, first with Intel Whiskey Lake-U options (430, 440 and 450 G6followed by the cheaper AMD Ryzen and Ryzen Pro Zen+ APUs. Now, the ProBook 445 G6 has made its way to Indian shores with prices starting from ₹67,260 (US$975). 

The HP ProBook 445 G6 is targeted at the enterprise and offers a slim and lightweight chassis. You get to choose CPU options between a Ryzen 3 2200U, Ryzen 5 2500U, or a Ryzen 7 Pro 2700U along with customizable RAM and M.2 SSD choices. While we had an overall good impression about the ProBook 445 G6 in our review, we did find that HP had cut some corners with the display — the brightness was low and unevenly distributed. Connectivity wise, the laptop is well-endowed with three USB Type-A ports, a USB Type-C port, HDMI 1.4b, Ethernet, a combo audio jack, and an SD card reader with an optional fingerprint sensor for Windows Hello. 

While the HP ProBook 445 G6 is cheaper than its Intel equivalent that offers more single-threaded performance, the AMD variants fare better in graphics thanks to the integrated Vega GPUs. The choice to go with Intel or AMD would ultimately depend on your workflow.

Irrespective of your choice, both Intel and AMD variants offer HP's suite of enterprise tools that enable added identity and data theft protection, user account management, malware protection via BIOSphere Gen4, and HP Fast Charge.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
