1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

We compared all the other 8GB internal memory portable PCs to this notebook PC and we think cheaper portable PCs such as the DELL Latitude 14 E5450 ($1,295.00), and the HP EliteBook 840 ($774.00) is also worth considering.

We compared all the other 15.6" portable PCs to this notebook PC and we think cheaper notebook PCs such as the B5400, and the B5400 both from Lenovo or the DELL Latitude 15 E5550 is also worth considering.

If this laptop screen size is too small for you then you might want to consider the Inspiron 17 5000 ($529.00) (17.3"), the Inspiron 17 5749 (17.3"), or the Inspiron 17 5758 (17.3") all from DELL.

We compared this laptop to all the other notebook PCs with a full-size keyboard and we think the DELL Latitude 14 E7450 which has better reviews; or the HP ProBook 430 ($642.03) which is cheaper are also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative notebook PCs which also have a full-size keyboard including the DELL Latitude 14 E7450.

We compared all the other laptops which also have a front camera to this laptop and we think the DELL Latitude 14 E7450 is also worth considering.

I love the pro book series. Solid construction, made to last, great performance and tend to last many years
It has driverhardware problems
The more recent Bios update and the latest drivers from HP plus the latest drivers from Intel for Bluetooth and Wifi. Then disable power management on the Bluetooth and Wifi will make Windows 8.1 run
Let's just say I gave up on Windows 7
There are no cons
Only downside is the screen has a reflective finish so if you are on in a well lit room you can sometimes see yourself. Not the biggest concern but more of a warning to those that don't like this
