Reviews for the HP ProBook 6540b

HP ProBook 6540b: Business Reliability
Source: Inside HW English
HP's ProBook 6540b isn't your typical notebook, not with its dimensions and weight. It's a strong and reliable office computer which is destined to spend most of its lifetime on the working desk. Although it lacks the finish of EliteBook series' models, its performance places it into the same category.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4550: The HD 4550 is a faster clocked HD 4530 and therefore entry level graphics card. It was substituted by the HD 5430 with the same clock rates.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


430M:

The Core i5-430M is a middle class dual core CPU that features only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.26-2.53 GHz (Turbo Mode). Furthermore, VT-d, trusted Execution and AES features are missing in the 430M. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 500-733 MHz) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.
