With an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of 300 megahertz, the ProBook 430 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other portable PCs of a comparable spec and age to the ProBook 430.

SSD Storage Medium

We compared this portable PC to all the other notebook PCs that have an SSD storage media and we think the Toshiba Tecra Z40, the Lenovo L450, and the DELL Latitude 12 E5250 which is cheaper; or the Fujitsu Lifebook U745 which has better reviews are also worth considering.
