HP ProBook 440 G8: Solid office laptop with some potential for expansion

Offers a solid office performance: The HP ProBook 440 G8
With the 8th generation of the HP ProBook 440 G8, Tiger Lake is now also introduced into this laptop series. However, the performance is still not more than satisfactory.

The HP ProBook 440 G8 is offered in various equipment configurations. The most powerful CPU you can select is the Intel Core i7-1165G7, which is also used in our test unit. In addition, it has 16 GB of working memory and a 512-GB SSD.

An internal Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 module is responsible for the display of image content. In theory, this graphics unit would profit from working memory in a dual-channel configuration, but due to the single-channel RAM of the ProBook 440 G8, it is unable to use its full performance. 

While the maintenance options allow for the expansion of the working memory, the system is also limited by the CPU to some extent. With a PL1 of 14 watts and a PL2 of 17 watts, the TGP is configured more at the lower end of the spectrum. However, this is still sufficient to ensure a smoothly running system.

The cooling system also profits from the low performance development. During office operation, the HP ProBook 440 G8 is mostly silent, and under load, the fan noise also remains within limits. This will also allow you to work in quiet surroundings without any problems.

Compared to the competitors, the lack of a Thunderbolt connection also stands out. On the other hand, there is one USB-C 3.1 Gen2 port and three USB-A ports, as well as HDMI. In contrast to the predecessor model, the storage card reader now only accepts microSD cards.

Overall, the HP ProBook 440 G8 offers solid basic equipment at a price of about 1100 Euros (~$1338). However, some other manufacturers may offer better equipment at that price.

Our review shows what else the HP ProBook 440 G8 has to offer.

I carried out my first IT experiments with a 386-based system and a whole 4 MB RAM. This was followed by work on various PCs and laptops that I maintained and repaired for friends and acquaintances. After training to become a Telecommunications Systems Technician and gaining a few years of experience, I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering. Currently, I pursue my fascination for IT, technology, and mobile devices by writing reviews and articles for Notebookcheck. I have also worked for Gamestar, Netzwelt, and Golem, among others.

Having worked as a programmer for 20 years (medical devices, AI, data management systems), I've been following the computer scene for many years and especially enjoy finding out about new technology advances. Originally from Germany but living in the US, I've been working as a translator more recently, with Notebookcheck allowing me to combine my interest in new devices and translation. Other interests include Buddhism, spending time in Tibetan monasteries, and translating ancient Tibetan texts.
