Business notebooks are famous for their simplicity, good looks, and stability. Ultimately, this is a fitting description for the ProBook 430 G8. We were really impressed by its input devices, which are on point for a laptop in this category. In addition to that, there are features like the privacy shutter, fingerprint reader, and optional IR face recognition scanner, which will improve your security. Plus, you get a hardware TPM 2.0 module. HP ProBook 430 G8’s IPS panel (AUO AUOCB8F) has a Full HD resolution, comfortable viewing angles, and a very good contrast ratio. Thankfully, its backlight doesn’t use PWM for brightness adjustment. On the other hand, the color coverage is pretty limited at 56% of sRGB. To be frank, this is actually a decent panel for business computing. What is even more than decent, considering the 13-inch screen size, is the presence of memory upgrade options. You get two SODIMM slots for up to 32GB of DDR4, according to the manufacturer. In addition, there is a single M.2 PCIe x4 slot for fast storage.
