The HP ProBook 6450B has been updated today as part of HP’s Spring notebook refresh that included many updates to the ProBook lines. In addition to powerful Intel processors the HP ProBook 6450B includes some very useful HP software that allows users to gain access to important PIM information without fully booting into Windows.
This new notebook comes with an Intel Core i5 or Core i7 processor, a 14.0-inch diagonal 16:9 HD, LED backlit display, and a choice of UMA or high performance discrete graphics powered by an ATI Mobility Radeon GPU.
HP also includes some of its HP Professional Innovations software such as HP Protect Tools (for security), HP QuickLook to provide almost instant access to e-mail, calendar, task and contact information, without having to boot up the notebook and HP QuickWeb for quick access to the web.
On top of these convenient features the ProBook 6450B includes a magnesium alloy support structure to provide a durable notebook and HP DuraFinish to prevent the keys from wearing quickly. Additionally the 6450B has hard drive protection to lock the drive in case of a fall and a spill resistant keyboard that drains out small amounts of liquid to prevent damage to the notebook. These features combine to offer compelling value and durability for business users. For mobile users HP also includes the HP Power Assistant which conserves power and helps stretch battery life.
The HP ProBook 6450B will be available in June starting at a price yet to be determined.
