HP announces HP ProBook 635 Aero G7, the world's lightest AMD-based business laptop
HP announced a slew of new devices today, but one of them should pique the interest of AMD fans searching for a lightweight business notebook.
The HP ProBook 635 Aero G7 is the “world’s lightest AMD-based business notebook,” according to HP. Starting at just 0.99 kg (2.20 lbs), the ProBook 635 Aero G7 will use AMD’s Ryzen 4000 APUs with optional PRO technologies. Buyers will have their choice of an AMD Ryzen PRO 4750U, AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 4650U, AMD Ryzen 7 4700U, AMD Ryzen 5 4500U, or AMD Ryzen 3 4300U. Each of these is coupled with Radeon Vega graphics.
The ProBook 635 Aero G7 is also HP’s “first ProBook with a magnesium alloy” chassis, which HP says is made (at least in part) from recycled aluminum and magnesium.
The ProBook 635 Aero G7 comes with a 13.3-inch FHD (1920 x 1080) display rated at up to 1000 nits, up to 32 GB DDR4-3200 dual-channel SDRAM, up to a 1 TB PCIe Gen3x4 NVMe SSD, an Intel AX200 WiFi 6 wireless card (with Bluetooth 5.0), and an optional Intel WWX 7360 LTE-Advanced Cat 9 WWAN card.
Port selection includes a USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10 Gbps) Type-C port, two USB 3.1 Gen 1 (5 Gbps) Type-A ports, a single HDMI 2.0 port, and a combo headphone/microphone jack. There are also multiple security features, including an optional fingerprint sensor, HP’s DriveLock and Automatic DriveLock, TPM 2.0, and a bevy of HP security software tools.
Powering everything is either a 3-cell 42 Wh or 3-cell 53 Wh li-ion battery.
The HP ProBook 635 Aero G7 will be available in November 2020. Pricing has not yet been announced.
