Review HP ProBook 650 G1 H5G74E Notebook


For the (small) business. HP's ProBook 650 is a new mainstream business notebook. It is well equipped with a docking port, 5 USB 3.0 ports, a matte display as well as a Haswell processor and it is also interesting for private users with a retail price...

5 USB 3.0 ports, Serial port, Easy to maintain and upgrade, Docking port, Matte display, Fast hard drive, SIM card slot and antennas for a 3G/LTE modem, Installation DVDs for Windows 7 and Windows 8, The good application performance, the low system...

Only 12 months warranty, Display is not very bright and has a low contrast, A much better display

F2R74UT#ABA Laptop - Excellent


Newegg purchase and shipping was great.

Excellent laptop for the money. After searching for several weeks this is the laptop I felt gave the most performance and features at a reasonable cost. Use with a HP docking station A7E36UT#ABA. I have been very pleased with both

None so far

So far, so good


So far the computer is working great. Starts up and does what I need it to do. Battery life is decent compared to other machines but too early to tell how the staying power will be.
