Reviews for the HP ProBook 640 G3 Z2W33ET
Not without flaws. HP's 14-inch device pleases with long battery life, good input devices, a fast NVMe SSD, and low system noise. Once again, the display deserves criticism: HP has chosen a low-contrast model with narrow viewing angles.

And finally, the limited storage upgradability will most likely be a deal-breaker for some. You can only go with an M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD or 2.5-inch HDD/SSD but not both at the same time. It’s funny how a considerably more portable 14-inch laptop like the ASUS ZenBook UX410 packs both slots and also has superior image quality. Although in an entirely different category, we honestly can’t think of a reason why you would go for the ProBook 640 G3 instead of the ZenBook UX410. The Acer Swift 5 is another great 14-inch option in the same ballpark when it comes to pricing. Still, if you are looking for a more classical business approach, the Lenovo ThinkPad E470 would be a much better option with superior IPS display, slightly more portable and similar overall user experience.
