HP ProBook 470 Series

HP ProBook 470 G4

The HP ProBook 470 is a notebook built for productivity. As manufacturers shift away to building less bulkier laptops, the ProBook 470 is one of the remaining laptops retaining the rather bulky 17-inch form factor. Arguably massive, it nevertheless delivers the performance and security features essential for demanding users. The Probook is largely made of plastic, which is sturdy and stable. Its dimensions measure at 41.68 x 28 x 2.58 cm and its weight starts from 2.63 kg. This laptop is probably not a good choice for those who require portability. However, its weight is relatively light for a 17-inch model. On the display side, it is equipped with a 17.3" diagonal Full HD anti-glare LED-backlit screen. Users may opt for either 1920 x 1080 or 1600 x 900 resolution. True to HP’s spirit of customizations, users are also given the choice of processors from the latest 7th generation Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 processors. The maximum memory configurable RAM capacity is 16 GB DDR4-2133 SDRAM. The storage capacity is up to 512 GB and users are also given the option of an optical drive (which is rare these days). Whatever the combination of specs users opt for, multi-tasking and prolonged productivity is a given on this machine. There are plenty connections offered on this machine whereby interfaces include USB 2.0, 3.0 and 3.1 Type-C ports. The inclusion of an HDMI port makes it easier to connect the laptop directly to monitors or TVs without any converters. It comes integrated with a 720p HD webcam for communication purposes. The clickpad with multi-touch gestures is wide and sensitive, as in many of HP's newer laptops. It is placed more towards the left making it easier to use for right-handers. Left-handers on the other hand might find this placement to be slightly odd. HP’s laptops have always been known for their durability. This laptop is designed to pass MIL-STD 810G testing and built with an aluminium reinforced keyboard. In addition, the keyboard is spill resistant and it features a backlight for use under dim environments. Furthermore, the keyboard is designed to help suppress ambient noise including keyboard clicks with HP Noise Cancellation Software. Audio quality on this notebook is loud and clear as it is enhanced with the HP Audio Boost. An HP 3-cell, 48 Wh long Life lithium ion battery delivers a battery life of up to 12:45 hours. For maximum security, a fast touch fingerprint scanner is integrated on board. To top it off, it comes pre-installed with Windows 10. In all, the ProBook 470 will certainly be a top choice for those looking out for 17-inch models. Hands-On-Artikel von Jagadisa Rajarathnam

More power. As of now, HP equips its ProBook with Broadwell processors, which provide the system with more computing power. Otherwise, no real modifications have been made compared with its Haswell-based precursors. Debut: We are testing the first Full HD model of the ProBook 470 lineup with the Broadwell-based ProBook.

In 2007 the revenue was $104 billion, making HP the first IT company in history to report revenues exceeding $100 billion. 

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).


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

AMD Radeon HD 8750M: Mid-range graphics card based on the GCN architecture.AMD Radeon R5 M255: Low-end graphics card based on the GCN architecture ("Sun" GPU).AMD Radeon R7 M340: Entry level dedicated graphics card based on a 28nm GCN (2.0 / 1.2?) chip. According to our sources may be slower than an R5 M330 and M335 (slower clock speed and same amount of compute cores).With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce 930MX: Lower mid-range graphics card for laptops based on the GM108 chip. The 930MX is a refresh to the 930M and now also supports GDDR5 graphics memory.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i5:

3230M: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based dual-core, includes HD 4000 GPU, core clock 2.6 - 3.2 GHz4200M: Haswell-based dual-core processor clocked at 2.5 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.1 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. 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.  

5500U: Broadwell-based ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core processor for notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5500 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.6500U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.7500U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.5 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.
