HP ProBook x360 435 G7 laptop review: AMD Ryzen also shines in the business convertible

87% HP ProBook x360 435 G7 laptop review: AMD Ryzen also shines in the business convertible

2-in-1 powered by Renoir. If the Ryzen 4000 series is already found in regular business laptops, why not in convertibles too? HP probably thought of that when they developed the ProBook x360 435 G7. The result: A convertible laptop that is faster than the competition and that easily outperforms even much more expensive HP EliteBooks.
