Posted on January 24, 2019 by Paul Thurrott in Hardware, Windows 10 with 5 Comments

HP today announced its sixth-generation AMD-based ProBook laptops for small businesses, delivering more modern designs, better performance and battery life, and enterprise-grade security and connectivity.

“Powered by Windows 10 and advanced AMD Ryzen quad-core processors, the HP ProBook 445 G6 and HP ProBook 455 G6 PCs are designed for today’s workforce and help keep professionals productive in the office and on the go with the power, style, and value that growing businesses need,” an HP representative told me.

Both PCs will be available later this month, with prices starting at $549. Key features include:

Modern design. The new-generation ProBooks feature slimmer bodies with clean edges, nearly-borderless displays, and 180-degree hinges for lay-flat functionality.

Modern innards. Based on AMD Ryzen quad-core processors and integrated AMD Radeon Vega Graphic graphics, the new ProBooks provide long battery life and quick charging capabilities. Both ship with 16 GB of RAM, 128 GB to 1 TB of storage, and 1366 x 768 (LCD) or 1920 x 1080 (IPS) displays; the ProBook 445 utilizes a 14-inch display, while the ProBook 455 comes with a 15.6-inch display.

Improved security and management. The new ProBooks ship with a range of security features, including HP BIOSphere Gen4 firmware and the HP Connection Optimizer self-healing wireless driver technology.

As always, HP is also providing a wide range of accessories for the ProBooks, including a power adapter, USB mini-dock, various video adapters, and an optional three-year next-day onsite support package.
