HP has refreshed their ProBook business laptop series with models powered by the latest Core i5-8250U and i7-8550U Coffee Lake CPUs from Intel. The ProBook G5 models come in 13.3”, 15.6” and 17.3” sizes.

With the new wave of Coffee Lake CPUs from Intel just around the corner, laptop OEMs are starting to reveal their new generation of laptops. HP is among the first companies to announce Coffee Lake laptops, presenting the updated ProBook 400 G5 business seriess. The new ProBooks come in 13.3”, 15.6” and 17.3” sizes, and the priciest CPU options include the new Core i5-8250U and the i7-8550U Coffee Lake CPUs, coupled with up to 32 GB of DDR4-2400 RAM.

The 13.3” models measure 12.8″ x 9.2″ x 0.8″ and weigh about 3.3 pounds, and they can incorporate a 1366 x 768 display with touchscreen capabilities, or a 1080p display without the touchscreen features. Only the 15.6” and the 17.3” models come equipped with a GeForce 930MX discrete GPU from Nvidia, so gaming is pretty much out of the question on all models.

The list of features that come standard with all sizes include:
•    storage options that may include a single 128 GB SSD or combos of an SSD and 1 TB HDD
•    2 SODIMM memory slots
•    48 Wh battery
•    spill-resistant keyboard with optional backlight
•    IR webcam for facial recognition and a fingerprint sensor
•    CAT-9 modem compatible with the latest MIL-STD 810G wireless standard, and Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity
•    optional USB Type-C dock with 5 USB Type-A ports, a Gigabit Ethernet jack, and support for dual monitors
•    SD card reader
•    ports include: a USB 3.1 Type-C port, HDMI 1.4b port, two USB 3.0 ports, a headset jack, Gigabit Ethernet

HP did not provide any information on pricing and availability for the time being.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
