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.

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

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.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
