Full Review

The Hp ProBook 6470b is all about productivity and business; a workhorse that will surely show off some of its features and designs. One of the first things I noticed about this ProBook 6470b was its 5mm thickness, but this isn’t a bad thing. Some Laptops just look really ugly and bulky, however, the ProBook might have a little bit of thickness, it still looks stunning with its metallic sleek housing. This really shows off the chassis workmanship and high-end materials used in designing this compelling notebook. Unlike other designs previously used in former HP models, the housing is not made of plastic but aluminium which is worth noting for prime durability. In terms of the effect that this has on weight, the laptop itself weighs in at just slightly over 2kg, which is reasonable considering some ultrabooks start at 1.5kg. The total dimension of the HP ProBook is 13.31 x 9.11 x 1.34 in (W x D x H).

The Keyboard has a nice soft-touch feel to it, however, seems compact with a slightly smaller enter key than usual. Not ideal for someone like myself but not a big deal either when you consider its 3rd generation Intel Core i5-3210M processing power and other specifications. Starting with the i5-3210M processor, launched in 2012, is a dual-core 2.50GHz, 4 core threaded CPU with 3MB SmartCache (also Level 3) and a Max Turbo speed of 3.10 GHz. A pretty good processor with past stress testing by other reputable testing agencies reporting no throttling, with a strong history of minimum clock fluctuations. The 6470b we are using has 6GB of Ram rather than the manufacturing specs of 4GB, which is also what we, nSpire Laptop sell them with – This really gives the laptop a little bit more of a push with modern day applications. As for storage space, we pair the Hp ProBook 6470B with a 5400 RPM 320GB Hard Drive, however, I would recommend an SSD update with this particular laptop as I would with most laptops if you are looking for a speedy machine.

Windows 10 really affects the performance of the system in a positive way and I found that the Hp ProBook 6470b didn’t quite run as fast on Windows 7 or 8, however, the option to downgrade is always available for those of you that just don’t quite get on with the newer version of Windows.

As for the screen display, I always prefer the Matte displays over the glossy which is a bonus if you’re like me, as the Hp ProBooks only come in the Matte displays, specifically the 6470b comes with a 14.0inch 1366 x 768 HD+ Screen with an aspect ratio of 16:9 and standard brightness of up to 213 cd/m².

When it comes to connectivity and features we have one of the latest Bluetooth 4.0+EDR versions, a Centrino Advanced-N 6205 802.11 a/b/g/n Dual band WiFi and of course your RJ-45 ethernet port. As for video display ports, we have one standard VGA connector and a Display port. Whilst the HP is lacking on the HDMI front, cheap Displayport to HDMI Adapters are not hard to come by. Unfortunately, the HP I am using does not feature a Webcam but there are models that include an integrated camera. Personally, I am all in favour of external webcams as integrated webcams (even latest generation ones) are substandard. The 6470b also features a FireWire port which seems to be still a common request from customers with cameras and other hardware that requires the port.

The biggest and most valuable feature is certainly USB 3.0 which can handle up to 5gb/ps – over 10x that of its predecessor USB 2.0. Generally, this HP has all the essential ports needed in a work, office, study or home environment.

Summary

The Hp ProBook 6470b is a comprehensive device and flawless when it comes to its workmanship. A stunning housing with a durable design but yet sleek and modern, being a bit heavier than other models of laptops due to its thickness but still portable and easy to maintain. Decent specifications, great display and a list of connectivity, however, lacking that HDMI port. Upgraded Ram from manufacturing specifications pushes the laptop into more facilitated modern-day applications and furthers the laptop’s multitasking power.
