HP revamps ProBook 400 line with Tiger Lake CPUs and Intel Iris Xe Graphics or Nvidia GeForce MX450 GPUs
HP announced the latest generation of their ProBook 400 line of laptops, replete with the latest silicon from Intel and plenty of features to meet the demands of home and office customers.
The ProBook 430 G8, ProBook 440 G8, and ProBook 450 G8 are 13.3-inch, 14-inch, and 15.6-inch laptops, respectively. All three laptops can be configured with one of three 11th Gen Intel CPUs: the Core i3-1115G4, the Core i5-1135G7, or the Core i7-1165G7. Both the Core i5 and Core i7 options use Intel’s new Iris Xe Graphics, while the Core i3 is paired with Intel’s latest UHD Graphics iGPU.
The laptops support up to 32 GB of DDR4-3200 SDRAM (dual-channel) and can be purchased with up to a 512 GB PCIe NVMe QLC SSD with 32 GB of Intel Optane memory. The devices will also ship with an Intel AX201 WiFi 6 wireless card that supports Bluetooth 5.0, an optional Intel XMM 7360 LTE-Advanced Cat 9 WWAN card, and some security features like TPM 2.0 and a fingerprint sensor.
There are three differences between the laptops: the display, I/O, and an optional discrete GPU. As the name implies, the ProBook 430 G8 can be configured with a 13.3-inch HD (1366x768) or FHD (1920x1080) screen with up to 1000 nits of brightness and 72% NTSC color space coverage. The ProBook 440 G8, on the other hand, sports a 14-inch HD or FHD display, though this screen can also hit up to 1000 nits and cover 72% of the NTSC color gamut. The ProBook 450 G8 shares the same brightness and color coverage as the other two models, though in a 15.6-inch display.
The ProBook 440 G8 and ProBook 450 G8 can be configured with an optional Nvidia GeForce MX450 GPU with 2 GB of GDDR5 VRAM. The ProBook 430 G8 will only have integrated graphics.
Lastly, the ProBook 430 G8 is equipped with a USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10 Gbps) Type-C port (w/ DisplayPort), two USB 3.1 Gen 1 (5 Gbps) Type-A ports, a combo headphone/microphone jack, one HDMI 1.4b port, and a microSD card slot. The ProBook 440 G8 and ProBook 450 G8 have all of these as well as an additional USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A port and an RJ-45 Ethernet port.
All three laptops are powered by a 3-cell 45 Wh battery.
The HP ProBook 430 G8, ProBook 440 G8, and ProBook 450 G8 will be available in November 2020.
