HP ProBook 450 G1

 

Not a bad price for a working laptop.

Fast, not the usual bloatware HP is known for, good combination of options, well designed ; Hard to beat Windows 7, (8 is just SO ugly)

Video's not striking but then didn't expect it to be

Great laptop for the price and it came with Win 7, and not Win 8, thankfully

Not *really* a CON, but a case would have been a nice added feature

Excellent Low Budget Laptop

 

It's a very quick and simple pc. I had no trouble setting it up and cleaning out the minimal junk ware that came installed. I installed an antivirus program and Microsoft Office 2013 without any issue. It has a brilliant start up and shut down time. I...

The keyboard is a bit spaced out but after a day or two you will adjust to it and it types very fluidly

DDR3l

 

should have looked into this further since the ram will not work in this system. you get a 2e3 error of not compatible. Hope this helps someone avoid the same mistake!

Laptop itself is solid. Will do what the user wants

DDR3l no where in the description did i see DDR3L. So I bought regular old DDR3 and this will not work

Very nice!

 

Thank you Patrick C. it was your initial comment that confirmed my interest in this purchase.

I hate Windows 8, again, hate. So since I had to upgrade my laptop due to XP not being supported and it was on its last leg anyway, I opted for Windows 7. Best decision ever ; I love that Windows 7 is preloaded, but that you have the disc with SP1...

None! Hopefully there will not be any

Bluetooth does not work

 

Fast startup

Bluetooth adapter will not find any devices. Wifi/bluetooth light always amber, wifi will work but bluetooth will not

Consumer review by:

Great Machine

 

Would recommend this computer

This computer is quite nice and works well. I prefer Windows XP over Windows 8 and this computer provides this at a reasonable cost

No real cons

HP Probook 450

 

After shopping for almost a week, I decided to purchase this laptop. I use it for business and personal access. The body is sturdy, with a rubberized top and the keys are not so bad, they are larger than most. Setting up was pretty easy, no bloatware...

I had to update Windows that took over an hour, but not a big deal

Consumer review by:

Genuinely impressed.

 

Here's what genuinely surprised me. IT COMES WITH AN OS DISC. A real, actual, Windows 7 re-install DVD (as well as a driver disc.) I scarcely believed it myself. There is also a very notable lack of bloatware here. There isn't even a preinstalled trial...

I ordered this for a parent who is a professor ; I'm just going to say that this machine has challenged everything I've come to expect from HP from years of pro and consumer IT work. See the other thoughts section for the things that truly surprised me...

Only a couple, and not worth dropping eggs over ; Chiclet-y keyboard. I'm not a fan, but everything has those now. It is pretty solid though ; Some versions of this have a fingerprint reader. This one has a little plastic filler where it would go. A...
