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

I am generally pleased with my purchase.


This very much like my Dell. Windows 7 is basically like Windows XP. It has many more features, but is still easy to navigate. The operating systems are still mind boggling. I like the flat size and it is easy to transport. It works well with Office...

Easy to use. Love Widows 7

Still much that a layman cannot comprehend. I have to get others to help me with the system operations

Fairly good computer


cannot get the fonts the way we want--some print overlaps other print--to stop that the font has to be too small--OK for young people--not me--over 70. Doesn't recognize sign in most of the the the first time. Would like to delete this feature but...

fires up fast
