HP Probook 650 G2 Review
Source: Gear Open English
The HP ProBook 650 G2 is a solid performer, with a battery that will last a full workday. Unfortunately, its screen, though very bright, isn’t terribly vivid, and its keys tended to stick a bit when I typed.

The HP ProBook 650 G2 is a solid performer, with a battery that will last a full workday. Unfortunately, its screen, though very bright, isn't terribly vivid, and its keys tended to stick a bit when I typed. For even better battery life, similar performance and an excellent keyboard, consider the Lenovo ThinkPad T560.

Disappointing screen. HP's mid-range business laptop pleases with decent input devices, solid casing, good battery life, and low system noise - unlike the Full HD panel that is a disappointment. We expect considerably more from a 1050 Euro (~$1179) laptop.
