Different display sizes are available starting at 13.3 through 15.6 inches up to 17.3 inches
Today Digital Magnet is looking at o ne of those updated machines – this is HP ProBook 450 GO.
The new ProBook 400 series will feature different display sizes starting at 13.3 through 15.6 inches up to 17.3 inches. We are really fond of the new looks as the HP has created a very classy and chic outside signature. The lid is what creates a pretty distinctive appearance. Its matte surface is rubberized so that it is both easy to carry around and at the same time very effective. It provides a very soft touch and along with that protects your notebook.

The reflective HP logo in the middle of the lid is delicately marked as it contrasts with the rest of the rubberized surface.
A beautiful mix of durable materials is revealed from the inside as well. The palm rest panel is made of aluminum. It goes up all over the speaker grid as well. On the right side a WiFi and a mute direct key are placed. A full-size keyboard is a must for business devices and this one here makes no exception.
Now let’s pay more attention to the display. Our test unit was the mid-sized member of the ProBook family.

The display panel is sharp and bright and along with the anti-reflection technology used here, provides hours of work without tiring out the eyes.
