The HP Probook range packs some great design and features at an attractive price point. And that’s more true than ever in the ProBook 445r G6 which packs the latest Ryzen 5 3500U APU with Microsoft Windows 10 Pro.
Available for preorder from Ebuyer from only £458 excluding VAT, this is a laptop made for SMB, providing business-class features that will boost productivity and efficiency, while keeping micro businesses agile and mobile.
At the heart of the 445r is AMD’s fastest mobile APU (Accelerated Processing Unit), the second generation Ryzen 5 3500U which combines four CPU cores and Radeon Vega 8 integrated graphics.
This translates into a smoother performance when handling different applications at the same time. Editing a presentation while doing a video conference for example will no longer mean a stuttering session.
There’s 8GB of system memory - with a free memory slot for an easy upgrade route to 32GB RAM, a fast 256GB PCIe NVMe SSD and a large, flicker-free 15.6-inch IPS full HD display with a super thin bezel - rather than the usual VA panel. The absence of any legacy components helps keeping the weight of the laptop to under 2Kg.
Other useful features include an IR HD webcam to allow Windows Hello functionality with dual microphone array, a plethora of ports, a fingerprint reader and a spill resistant keyboard with a numeric keypad.
Note that although there are four physical USB ports, only the three USB Type-A ones can transfer data and charge devices; the fourth one, a Type-C connector, can only be used for charging and for connecting to a compatible display.
The large 45Wh battery will ensure that you have a long battery life and HP’s Fast Charge technology means that you will be able to recharge up to 50% battery life in just 30 minutes.
Users will appreciate how well designed the laptop is as well. Despite having a big screen, it has an ultraslim chassis in a refined, new, natural silver finish that includes a 3D forged aluminum keyboard deck and durable stamped aluminum top cover.
Microsoft’s best business operating system ever
Windows 10 Pro is included with the Probook 445r G6 which brings a number of advanced ready features like BitLocker device encryption, Windows Information Protection (WIP), mobile device management (MDM), automatic updates and the ability to easily pair devices with Windows Server.
These features are not available on Windows 10 Home; small businesses greatly benefit from the superior security and productivity benefits of Windows 10 Pro.
HP’s expertise in security enterprise management
HP business laptops have some of the most extensive security management features in the industry and the Probook 445r G6 is an excellent example of what’s on offer.
There’s an absolute persistence module, HP’s proprietary BIOSphere, DriveLock and Automatic DriveLock, Password Manager, Secure Erase and Security Manager. All this is geared towards making the device far more secure than your standard SMB laptop by fortifying usual vulnerable points like the firmware.
Get on a winning team
Each HP laptop comes with a one-year standard parts and labour limited warranty along with a one year limited warranty on the battery; that can be upgraded to three year onsite warranty.
Businesses should also add Microsoft Office Home and Business 2019 or Office 365 Business Premium to benefit from Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook.
