Review HP ProBook 6555b Notebook

 

Triple-Core. The upscale office class from HP is called ProBook.

Keyboard with great feedback; Touchpad for fast-paced work; Many connections including serial; eSATA & FireWire; 3G-Modul with GPS; Security functions like TPM; Matte display; Stable base unit; 7200 rpm HDD without vibration; Good sound quality

Comparably short runtimes; Small color space/contrasts; Loud optical driver

HP effectively eliminated vibrations from the 7.200 RPM harddrive.
