Review HP ProBook 6560b Notebook

 

Heavy metal reloaded. The ProBook 6560 LG658EA is an entry level business device from Hewlett Packard in a robust aluminum case. In addition to its high-end looks, the installed hardware is also impressive: a dual core CPU from Intel's second...

Short battery life during load, No USB 3.0 support, Narrow viewing angles, A USB 3.0 port would enhance the almost perfect notebook even more

HP ProBook 6560b review: A solid 15.6in business laptop, but it's not without its problems

 

With great build quality and lots of features, the ProBook 6560b should be a winner. However, it's let down by a couple of configuration issues, it's noisy and it's keyboard and touchpad could be better.

HP ProBook 6560b (LW954PA) business laptop

 

The HP ProBook 6560b isn't flashy or as refined as an EliteBook and it's aimed at small business users rather than corporate types.

Solid Business Notebook

 

With WiFi on and screen brightness reduced to 50% I get around 4-4.5 hours of battery life, not bad at all. Displayport video output is included, but I prefer HDMI (personal preference). On any 15.6" notebook 1366x768 resolution doesn't look that great...

Solidly built mid-range business notebook. The chassis is reinforced with magnesium for added strength. The aluminum finish on the casing feels solid and should withstand scuffs and abuse. Display hinges feel solid and should provide years of worry...

Typical HP bloatware, you'll spend some time uninstalling unnecessary HP applications. The edge of the palmrest is not beveled/rounded so there might be some very minor/mild discomfort depending on your typing style. Also the DVD drive button is hard...

honest laptop

 

This laptop is rugged, reliable and understated. It's elegantly simple and contains premium components like the flawless Centrino Advanced N 6205 wireless adapter.

I use this at work, great wireless performance... slips between access points w/o fail. Produces virtually no heat, good battery life. Quiet keyboard with defined edges. Docs and undocs dozens of times daily without incident. Multitouch pinch-zoom...

weak audio, finicky on/off softswitch for mouse, no bluetooth
