Review HP ProBook 6470b Notebook


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

Solid workmanship, Many interfaces, Temperature management, Performance, Battery life, Matte screen, The well-crafted casing featuring elegant materials and a timeless (but staid) design

Poor black value and contrast, Tight viewing angles, System noise, The screen could be a bit brighter for a 1000 Euro machine

HP 6470b ProBook


The HP 6470b ProBook Laptop is meant for personal as well as professional users. It has a bead-blast aluminum display with wear-resistant tungsten-colored finish that protects your laptop against everyday bumps and scratches as well as gives it a...

Good Laptop...


Can't tell which laptop config you're getting 'till it arrives. Mine was Intel UMA 4000 Graphics with WWAN (Cell HPSA), webcam, array mic and DVD-ROM.

I got what the description described as a C Grade Laptop; dents, scratches and work keyboard. Happy with it!

Inside should be cleaned a bit better.

Excellent choice for simple needs


I picked this for the solid state memory, it has a little less capacity than I would like, but I am very happy with the performance. It boots really fast , runs almost silent and doesn't put off as much heat as my last laptop. I was a little leary...

Fast, quiet, excellent condition for a refurbished product.... it looks practically new!

The battery life seems a little short... but it is a used computer. It lasts 3-5 hours depending on whether or not I'm streaming music.

Nice for the price!


It should come in handy on trips. I can continue working on my guitar tabs while I'm away from my beasty desktop pc, or play Shovel Knight...

I bought this for my wife because she wanted a laptop that can handle everyday tasks smoothly. This one is perfect for her. The SSD really speeds up things. Booting up into Windows takes like 8 seconds. The unmentioned video processor happens to be an...

Too soon to tell.

Good Work Laptop


If you do not like windows 8 and need a work laptop with Windows 7 this is the machine for you. Look no further.

Good work machine with options to use a docking station. Machine has plenty of power and good built quality. I buy these for a company and that seems to be the best application for these units

Comes with a lot of HP bloatware. You can always uninstall it or install a fresh copy of the OS

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

HP ProBook 6470b


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.

HP ProBook 6470b


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