- HP 6470b i7. It works perfect for me. real fast. - Lesser weight as compared to other business laptop. - I Changed the drive to an SSD drive and made a dualboot with Linux Mint 17. - Startup is 6sec. and shutdown time on Linux Mint is 3sec. for windows is 7sec startup and 5sec. on shutdown - Good battery life, discharges slowly and charges quickly.
- bad screen brightnessÇ - screen resolution of 1366 x 768 (highly inacceptable as compared to other bands) - enter key is small - no HDMI, cable adapter is needed - no dedicated graphics card
I have the sister model, the 15" version. Great laptop (got it cheap)! It has DISPLAYPORT, which is miles better than hdmi and futureproof - all you need is a $5 cable. HOWEVER, beware, these have either toshiba hdds, or Hitachi Z7K500 drives which pop quite often.
The worst laptop ever I got at a workplace. Very heavy, thick casing, no hdmi, no bluetooth, worst touchpad and no backlit keyboard. Can't believe companies are providing this laptop to employees. on the plus side, very good battery life.
This is the worst laptop I have ever used. You cannot rest your left palm on the area next to the mouse pad while typing because it will cause the mouse to click... this is difficult to explain, but I'll be composing an email and the mouse clicks randomly and suddenly I've jumped to a different area or if the mouse happens to be over the 'send' button it will send the message before I even finish typing. This laptop is provided to me by my employer and it is the biggest, most frustrating, piece of garbage I have ever used. While the spec's look decent on paper for an office device, actually functionality is horrid.
Business to go. Beside its 15 inch ProBook range, HP also offers a smaller version for business people who value mobility. The ProBook 6470B provides a full-blown Office device in a small size with Intel's dual-core processor and integrated Intel HD graphics card, a matte 14 inch HD ready screen and many interfaces.
