7 Reasons For

HP Notebook PCs Have Good Reviews

Based on 3,456 owner and expert reviews, HP has good reviews for its portable PCs. HP also has good reviews specifically within its ultrabooks range.

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The HP Pro supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than most ultrabooks that were launched around the same time as it. Most notebook PCs of this spec and age support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. This portable PC also supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds.

This laptop's memory clock speeds supported by processor (1,600MHz) is in fact the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor amongst all ultrabooks that came out around the same time as the Pro.

A 133MHz processor memory clock speed is the worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across similar types of laptop.

SSD Storage Medium

This notebook PC has an SSD storage medium, which is typical of many ultrabooks that were released more than two years ago. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.

We compared all the other laptops that have an SSD storage media to this notebook PC and we think the XPS 13, and the XPS 13 both from DELL or the Asus UX301LA-C4061H which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If the storage medium of this portable PC is too bad for you then you might also want to consider the Lenovo X240 (SSD).

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

The HP Pro does not have a full-size keyboard, although this is within the context that most of the other similar spec laptops that were launched more than two years ago also do not have a full-size keyboard.

It is worth also looking at alternative portable PCs which also have a full-size keyboard including the Lenovo X1 Carbon which is also higher rated.

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

The average total storage capacity of similar spec notebook PCs that have been available for more than two years is 360GB. With a total storage capacity of only 128 gigabytes, the HP Pro has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other portable PCs of this age and spec.

If this portable PC total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Lenovo X1 Carbon (180GB and higher rated); or the ThinkPad X1 Carbon (180GB and cheaper), or the X1 Carbon (180GB and cheaper) both from Lenovo.

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

The HP Pro has a quite slow processor clock speed (only 1.7 gigahertz) compared to most of the other laptops that have been available for a comparable time to the Pro.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 1.7GHz processor clock speed portable PCs currently available including the DELL XPS 13 which is cheaper.

If you want a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the Lenovo X1 Carbon (1.8GHz and higher rated); or the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (1.8GHz and cheaper).
