The updated ProBook mainstream notebooks from HP start at prices from $499 USD to $749 USD, offering screen sizes between 13.3 and 17.3 inches, various Intel Skylake processors, flexible internal storage options, and up to 16 GB of memory.

HP has just released the updated ProBook 400 G4 series laptops, now featuring Kaby Lake processors, as well as a thinner design and Asteroid Silver color styling. Although quite attractive on the outside, these machines have passed the MIL-STD-810G testing, as well as 120,000 hours of HP diagnostics and testing.

These are the models available, their screen size and resolution, the weight of the base configuration, and the starting prices:

  • HP ProBook 430 G4 - 13.3-inch HD (full HD and touchscreen options available), 3.28 pounds, $599 USD
  • HP ProBook 440 G4 - 14-inch HD (full HD and touchscreen options available), 3.61 pounds, $529 USD
  • HP ProBook 450 G4 - 15.6-inch HD (full HD and touchscreen options available), 4.49 pounds, $599 USD
  • HP ProBook 455 G4 - 15.6-inch HD (full HD option available), 4.58 pounds, $499 USD
  • HP ProBook 470 G4 -  17.3-inch HD+ (full HD option available), 5.79 pounds, $749 USD

The ProBook 455 G4 is the only model to feature a processor made by AMD, being powered by a 7th generation APU with Radeon R4 or Radeon R6 graphics (three processor choices available). HP promises up to 16 hours of autonomy for these new machines.

In addition to the above, the ProBook 400 series also pack a new, enlarged click pad with an optimized touch zone. Those who want to take them for a spin and happen to be in New York can find them at Pepcom NYC beginning at 6 PM, at the Metropolitan Pavilion at 124 W. 19th Street.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
