HP ProBook 455 Ubuntu review

 

An adequate and inexpensive desktop replacement

Cheap, lots of ports, good OS functionality, high capacity HDD

Poor battery life, old version of Ubuntu, mediocre performance

For basic office tasks, the ProBook 455 Ubuntu isn't a bad desktop replacement, and Ubuntu has made big strides from niche project to a rounded OS that most people will adapt to comfortably.

HP ProBook 455 Ubuntu review

 

This collaboration between HP and Canonical partly works, but mediocre performance, poor battery life and a soon to be out-of-date OS stand in the way of Ubuntu's mainstream enterprise success.

Cheap, lots of ports, good OS functionality, high capacity HDD

Thick and heavy, dull screen, poor battery life, old version of Ubuntu

Great!

 

I love it. God has really blessed. I was first leery of getting an HP, but I have been impressed, even with the manuals you can download from the web site. I was leery of having an AMD processor in a notebook, because of the heat. The notebook has been...

HP ProBook 455 G1 H0V84EA

 

Nice design and build quality. Fantastic business level security features for the price (Hard drive encryption, Fingerprint scanner, full suite of security options on the desktop). Windows 7 downgrade installed as standard. I don't find WIN 8 great for...

None at the price to be honest

HP ProBook 455 G1 H0V84EA

 

Seems well designed and less bloatware than some other makes

Poor documentation - not even an e-manual

HP ProBook 455 G1 H0V84EA

 

Very early in ownership. Construction looks better than the average consumer machine which is why we went for a business class one. Plus of course Windows 7 with option to move to 8 when we're ready ; No complaints yet, performance as expected, battery...

None that I've spotted in such a short time
