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...

Somewhat Disappointed

 

I admit that I jumped on this deal like a dog with a new bone! I didn't even really study the specs, so I shouldn't have expected so much. The screen display is very unimpressive and the sound quality is only fair. I made the mistake of setting this...

Great price, if you can believe the "original" price

Display and sound leave a lot to be desired. Lacks features that are common on most laptops

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.

Good machine, for a home system. I have a feeling that these should be able to last awhile without any hardware problems.

That woudl actually be a four core processor. i7 doesn't even come in oct. Good machine, but for home users. More of an awesome media and gaming rig than for business use.

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.

The HP ProBook 6460b has a known issue with a bad BIOS ROM chip. Basically, all of the sudden it won't power on. The charge light will stay on, and flash amber when you push the power button, but it won't power on. I had 3 out of 7 die within two...

These were a mainstay for a while. They last, no doubt. But when they begin to fail (hardware), they seem to do so in the most hard to pin down way.... :)

I really do love the laptop, but I found that the stock broadcom drivers cause a massive memory leak.

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.
