With stamina. The ProBook 450 G2 attracts buyers with its low heating, low system noise, good input devices, and long battery runtimes. The display is a major weakness. In addition, HP charges a steep price for the computer.
60% HP ProBook 450 G2 review
Source: Expert Reviews English
The HP ProBook 450 G2 is a sturdy business laptop with reasonable performance and a good keyboard, which is about as much as you can ask from a cheap business laptop. If your needs are modest, this is a great buy. Otherwise, spend £100 more and you could buy the Chillblast Akira, which has a dedicated graphics card and a Full HD screen.

HP ProBook 450 G2-L3Q26EA

Formal and sleek-looking; the HP ProBook 450 G2 Notebook certainly highlights the ProBook name. The entire chassis comes in dark grey with the interior finished in brush metal. The top cover has a matte look with only the HP logo standing out in gloss. Fluid lines and curved edges are certainly echoed all around the notebook's silhouette, the full sized tile keyboard comes in dark grey and the low profile look is maintained. Like any professional notebook, the HP ProBook 450 G2 Notebook comes in various customizable specifications. At the top end of the spectrum there is a 15.6 inch FHD anti-glare LED-backlit screen, an Intel Core i7-5500U clocked at 2.4 GHz with Intel HD Graphics 5500, up to 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3L SDRAM, an AMD Radeon R5 M255 GPU with either 1 GB or 2 GB dedicated VRAM. Users can also select from a vast range of storage options ranging from 200 GB hard drives to 120 GB M.2 SSDs. Other features include an optional Blu-ray optical drive, two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI out, a VGA port and a 720p HD webcam. Audio quality is good with DTS Sound+ driving the integrated stereo speakers. The HP ProBook 450 G2 Notebook can be powered by either a 4-cell, 44 Wh Li-Ion battery or a 4-cell, 40 Wh Long Life Li-Ion pack.

Office all-rounder. The ProBook 450 G3's assets are found in low temperature development, quiet operating noise, decent input devices, and a good battery life. However, the matte, Full HD screen is a shortcoming. The total bundle is throughout affordable at a price of approximately 640 Euros (~$701). A Windows operating system is not preloaded.
HP ProBook 450 G3 / 455 G3 review – what a budget business notebook should look like
Source: Laptop Media English
Quite frankly, we weren’t surprised by the ProBook at all since the review of the 14-inch model. Our opinion of the product remains unchanged and it’s mostly positive. We are happy with the build quality, the good choice of materials and overall design. All of this make up for a reliable, sturdy and elegant product which is rarely found in this price range. The chassis also holds four USB ports on top of all other standard connectivity options and, of course, doesn’t lack the much needed good typing experience offering excellent keyboard and touchpad usability.

Unworthy screen. HP is one of the first manufacturers to use Kaby Lake in its 400 ProBook lineup in the business sector. Why the 15.6-inch model is not convincing despite its many positive traits can be read in our in-depth report.
HP ProBook 450 G4 review – Intel’s new Kaby Lake CPU isn’t the only improvement
Source: Laptop Media English
The new HP ProBook 450 G4 delivered even more than we expected. It brings a slightly altered design, which isn’t prone to smudges and fingerprints anymore, but retains the good choice of materials and feel. Maybe it’s not a big improvement compared to the previous version but it’s definitely not a step back either. If anything, there’s a small decline in weight and size over the ProBook 450 G3. Moreover, the ProBook 450 G4 introduces the already excellent keyboard from the last generation while revamping the touchpad, which offered nothing less than good experience. It’s nowhere near the Pavilion 15’s stiff and almost unusable touchpad.

HP specializes in developing and manufacturing computing, storage, and networking hardware, software and services. Major product lines include personal computing devices, enterprise servers, related storage devices, as well as a diverse range of printers and other imaging products. Other product lines, including electronic test equipment and systems, medical electronic equipment, solid state components and instrumentation for chemical analysis.

Up to 2015, the company was named Hewlett Packard Company. After a split, the computer range was renamed to HP Inc.

In the laptop segment, HP was the world's largest manufacturer from 2014 to 2016 with a market share of 20-21% from 2014 to 2016, but they only exceed Lenovo by a small margin as of recently. HP is not present in the smartphone sector (as of 2016).

The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
