HP ProBook 455 G2 Notebook Review


You get what you pay for. HP demands less than 400 Euros (~$446) for the basic configuration of its ProBook 455 G2, which recommends it for entering the world of semi-professional office laptops. Unfortunately, the weak hardware slows down the user far...

Decent build, Good input devices, Matte screen surface, Low temperature development, Low price

Weak application and 3D performance, Fan spins permanently, Below average battery life, 12 months warranty only

HP's ProBook 455 G2 sooner leaves a mixed overall impression after our test. The laptop with a price of below 400 Euros (~$446) appeals with decent connectivity, office-suitable input devices and an above average casing quality. Of course, a swift SSD...

HP ProBook 455 G2: A low-cost business notebook for Ubuntu lovers [Review]


Most of the laptops you can buy come with Windows pre-installed. Obviously the latest batch have Windows 10 on them, with more being announced daily. If you prefer Linux you can either replace Microsoft's operating system with your distro of choice, or...

HP ProBook 455 G2 Ubuntu budget laptop review


HP keeps down the price of its ProBook 455 budget laptop with Ubuntu preinstalled. We see how it stacks up against Windows rivals

It may be cheap but out of the box, but the HP ProBook 455 G2 Ubuntu won’t suit many users. A newer Ubuntu or Windows OS may help, but it’s not one for the typical untutored budget PC buyer.

HP Probook 455 G2 Ubuntu review


If you're sick of Windows 10 already then try this Ubuntu-powered budget laptop

Cheap; good build quality; open-source operating system; big hard disk

Patchy performance; limited legacy applications; so-so screen

A cheap Linux laptop, but both the software and hardware need more finesse

Not much! Small delete key tucked away at the top of the keyboard is the only thing so far.

Good value for money with Windows 7 Pro installed and Windows 10 media supplied. Also a laptop case included. Build quality good for the price

Lettering on keyboard could have better contrast to make it easier to read Lots of Windows updates needed to bring system up to date

HP ProBook 455 G2


The aluminium shell is great, a real premium look and feel. Much thinner and lighter than my 5 year old laptop. Display quality is standard, with a sturdy lid. I upgrade the Ram to 8GB making it much faster, and giving the on board graphics a boost....

No real issues, shame it didn't come with 8GB ram installed. Also Windows 10 kept BSOD due to either incompatibility with the wifi driver or Bullguard anti virus. Using an older driver seemed to of worked though.

Machine 'looks' good and it is very easy to start up from the box! Have not yet had it long enough to comment much further but initial impression is good and I like Windows 7.
