The new HP ProBook 635 Aero G7 is the world's lightest AMD-based business laptop. Coming in just under 1 kg, the laptop is powered by the user's choice of AMD Ryzen 4000 series APUs, all wrapped in an aluminum-magnesium alloy made in part from recycled materials.

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.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
