HP Probook 450 g7 Review

Finally, we were able to get our hands on the 15-inch version of the new smart ProBook 400 G7 series. It is appropriately called the ProBook 450 G7 and it features a very modest smart home update over the last-year model

Apart from the new (yet mildly refreshed) Comet Lake processors, we see no apparent difference between the two.

Ultimately, this is not a bad thing, since the ProBook 450 G6 chassis was pretty successful, actually. Additionally, there is a 1080p IPS display option, as well as a touchscreen-enabled screen, should you need it

Let’s not forget about the spill-resistant keyboard and the compliance of some MIL-STD-810G tests

On the other side, unlike last year, when we got the iGPU version of the model, this time, we decided to go for the most powerful graphics card option available – the GeForce MX250.

 As we learned – HP has gone for the more powerful 25W option. So, without further ado, let’s see how this device fairs in the world of low-to-medium budget business offerings.

PROS
CONS
  • very good upgradability
  • full-size SD card reader
  • robust chassis
  • comfortable input-devices
  • Wi-Fi 
  • weak screen (color gamut)
  • no Thunderbolt
  • no pointing-stick option

What’s in the box?

Inside the packaging, you’ll find a 45W power adapter or a 65W if you opt for a discrete GPU-equipped model.

By the way, there are optional chargers that have Type-C connectors, while the default model would feature a barrel-style plug.

Design and construction

As we mentioned, this device is not really changed, compared to its predecessor, when it comes to the design. It is still a plastic-aluminum combo and there is some flex to the body.

Additionally, it has a profile of 19mm and weighs 2 kg flat. Overall – a decent chassis, when it comes to portability, but we’d like to see more flex-resistance next time.

We weren’t really able to open the lid with a single hand, as the base lifts just a little bit on the initial move. On the bright side, the side bezels are rather thin and the top one houses an HD camera with a “privacy cover”.

”. Additionally, you can configure the notebook with an IR face recognition system, should you need the extra biometrics.

Next, there is the keyboard. This time, we had the backlight-equipped unit, and it has a clicky, yet quiet feedback – perfect for office computing.

So, above it, we have the speakers grill, while the below it, you’ll find the touchpad. Ultimately, it is a great unit with good gliding capabilities and multi-touch gestures support

. Additionally, there is a fingerprint reader, which sits almost flush with the base. We found it fast and accurate.

 Although the key travel is a little short, we feel it is extremely comfortable for typing, and of course – the accountants out there will be happy with the full-size NumberPad section

Lastly, the bottom plate houses only the air intake grill, while the hot air is exhausted from the left side.

Ports

The left side houses a USB 2.0 port, as well as an SD card reader, while on the right, you can see the charging plug, a USB Type-C 3.1 (Gen. 1) port with Power Delivery and DisplayPort output, an RJ-45 connector, an HDMI 1.4b connector as well as two USB Type-A 3.1 (Gen. 1) ports and an audio jack.

Disassembly, upgrade options and maintenance

HP has done a great job in terms of ease of access to the internals. You only need to unscrew 7 Phillips-head screws, five of which would stay attached to the panel, so you won’t lose them. After that, gently make your way around the device with a plastic pry tool or a guitar pick.

The first thing that grabs our attention when we are inside is the cooling solution.

HP has utilized two heat pipes – a thinner and a thicker one. Then, they connect to a heat sink, which dissipates the heat thanks to the fan, which blows it away from the side of the machine.

Should you need to upgrade your memory, the maximum is 32GB of DDR4 at 2666 MHz in dual channel mode.

Additionally, there are two storage options – an M.2 NVMe slot, as well as a 2.5″ SATA drive slot.

Battery-wise, you’ll get the same unit from last year with a capacity of 45Wh.

Display quality

HP ProBook 450 G7 is equipped with a Full HD IPS panel, model number AUO B156HAN02.1 (AUO21ED). Its diagonal is 15.6″ (39.62 cm), and the resolution – 1920 х 1080p.

Additionally, the screen ratio is 16:9, the pixel density – 142 ppi, their pitch – 0.18 x 0.18 mm.

The screen can be considered Retina when viewed from at least 60 cm (from this distance, the average human eye can’t see the individual pixels).

Viewing angles are good. We offer images at different angles to evaluate the quality.

The maximum measured brightness is 287 nits (cd/m2) in the middle of the screen and 277 nits (cd/m2) average across the surface with a maximum deviation of 10%.

The Correlated Color Temperature on a white screen and at maximum brightness is 6700K (average) – slightly colder than the 6500K optimum for sRGB. The average color temperature through the grey scale before profiling is 6200K.

In the illustration below you can see how the display performs from uniformity perspective.

 The illustration below shows how matters are for operational brightness levels (approximately 140 nits) – in this particular case at 74% Brightness (White level = 143 cd/m2, Black level = 0.1 cd/m2).

Values of dE2000 over 4.0 should not occur, and this parameter is one of the first you should check if you intend to use the laptop for color-sensitive work (a maximum tolerance of 2.0 ). The contrast ratio is very good – 1380:1.

To make sure we are on the same page, we would like to give you a little introduction to the sRGB color gamut and the Adobe RGB.

To start, there’s the CIE 1976 Uniform Chromaticity Diagram that represents the visible specter of colors by the human eye, giving you a better perception of the color gamut coverage and the color accuracy.

It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality.

Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.

Windows Store

For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place.

And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.

Windows Continuum

Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs.

A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface.

You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience.

But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.

Xbox on Windows 10

Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games,

and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. 

The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware.

 Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.

Additional Windows 10 Pro Features

The Pro version of Windows 10 includes all the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for business users, including Hyper-V virtualization,

BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices will also be able to join domains and the Azure Active Directory, and they can even access a specialized version of the Windows Store featuring custom, company-specific applications.

Conclusions

HP ProBook 450 G7’s display has a Full HD IPS panel with comfortable viewing angles, good contrast ratio, and non-flickering backlight.

However, if you need a laptop with good color reproduction, this is not the one for you – it covers only 53% of sRGB and the colors are way off, even with our profiles applied.
