HP Probook 470 G5


This laptop functions well. However it is quite weighty and thick. It is also quite slow and the battery life is around 4-6 hours. However it is quite stable and is able to work well for its uses.

A hidden gem. Relatively cheap, but a high-performance laptop for an IT professional or a power-user


I am a software developer who usually works in the office and sometimes I have to take the laptop home. My priorities are mostly the following: raw CPU performance, IO subsystem performance, memory size, operating system and its edition. The 3D gaming...
