64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This portable PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on laptops that were released around the same time as it.

The HP G4 has a full-size keyboard, as do most of the other comparable spec laptops that have been around for more than a year.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative portable PCs with a full-size keyboard currently available including cheaper notebook PCs such as the Lenovo B50-80 ($429.99).

It is worth considering alternative laptops which also have a full-size keyboard including the Latitude 12 5000 ($1,295.00), or the Latitude 14 5000 ($1,033.98) both from DELL.

If you would prefer a laptop with a better storage medium then you might want to consider the HP EliteBook 820 (SSD), or the DELL Latitude 13 3340 (SSD) which is also cheaper.
