Review HP ProBook 6470b Notebook


Business on the go. Beside its 15-inch ProBook laptop, HP also of

Solid workmanship; Many interfaces; Temperature management; Performance; Battery life; Matte screen

Poor black value and contrast; Tight viewing angles; System noise

HP's ProBook 6470b (B5W83AW) still has a serious contender in the older 6460b. Another HP rival would be the EliteBook 8470p. Other manufacturers also have interesting devices like Dell's Latitude E6430s and the Vostro 3460. Lenovo's ThinkPad T430s is...

Sturdy and versatile package. Users like them, and we've had very few physical problems aside from a cracked screen (while sitting open on a desk against a wall!) and a broken hinge.

This computer is a beast. 8 core processor, 16GB RAM, 2TB hard drive. Excellent graphics card. My only issue that I have with this computer, is that the fan kicks on a lot and is very noisy. Going to look at the BIOS and see if I can turn it down.

Core i7-2600 3.4 GHz, 16GB RAM, 160GB SSD, Win7 64 bit. Paid about $1,800. Loads every program in about 1 second. Outlook maybe 5 seconds. Running multiple VMs for website development no sweat. I love it.
