Nice article. One thing I want to know is there any difference in display light intensity between hp 450 and 250. I have both laptops, but 250 have little bit darker screen. Is that a factory mistake, or something else?

I want to know regarding whether the HP pro book is designed to withstand heating temperatures when dedicated graphics are installed.

the hp pavillion dv series seem to suck as they overheat and my current pavillion dv model motherboard burnt twice and the hp support were clueless.

Please advise i need a good graphc card machine with amd radeon graphics but doe not burn out.

After reviewing HP Probook 450 maintenance manual, there is no mSATA slot. The only way to install SSD is to use the optical drive bay.

On picture above is not mSata, mSata has two screws on side and other connector ..
This looks like M.2 NGFF connector ..

As for the screen, you took the ProBook 470 and calibrated it - the blue cast was gone. There's no reason why it would not work on this one too. The uncalibrated grayscale charts of both 450 and 470 are pretty much the same, with clearly visible bluish readings.

I am quite amazed that you haven't mentioned the rubber lid, this is definitely something that would attract some costumers, while drive away others... It is definitely the biggest change of the exterior since the previous generation (4540s). To be sincere, that's all that's changed since the last version! No Haswell inside or other "internal" advancements...

Another thing: battery running time of barely more that 3 hours is considered at least mediocre, not to be crude. Even you at notebookcheck have considered battery running time of 4 hrs as mediocre or average... This is horrible!

15.6-inch 16:9 screen with a resolution of 1366x768 pixels? It's a shame, tablets and even phones have better! Who wants to buy such, especially for business? They are stubbornly producing "crapbooks" and are surprised about decreasing market! Please, please let me have an option to buy a laptop with 16:10 or 4:3 screen and good screen resolution!

There's barely any info at all on the durability of the chassis. Is the screen well protected from twisting and pressure forces on the lid ? does it yield or flex ?
This has been a recent trend in notebookcheck not to provide enough info on this (which is primarily the reason I read reviews here in the first place !)

Good job on your reviews, I hope for a revision or perhaps more focus on the chassis quality (hinges, twists, flexes, LCD cover) in future reviews.

I heard, that previous generation (Probook 4540s) had problems with using mSATA SSD as a boot drive. Can someone check if HP fixed this problem in Probook 450?

Oh, and what is the bandwidth of the mSATA slot in Probook 450 (3 Gbps or 6 Gbps)?

Casual business. HP considers it ProBook series to be quite affordable yet of high-quality. The business laptops that feature a straightforward configuration and decent battery runtimes are to primarily find a place in companies and on the desks of freelancers.
