Summary: This is just a personal preference, but I like more speed so I always buy an additional 4GB of RAM to add to the notebook. It is already at a good price so I can justify the additional cost of an extra stick of memory.
Pros: I purchase the ProBooks for deployment in the company, for which I work. I think for what you are getting, it is an incredible price. I prefer the this model because we run 2 OSs Linux Mint and Win 7 Pro and the notebook runs well with either operating system. I can still purchase Win 7 pro on th...
Cons: The wireless card by realtec doesn't get picked up by Debian Linux distros (Ubuntu, Mint, Zorin, etc.) and you have to install the driver (rtl8723be) separately. It isn't a problem really, just a nice thing to know before installing Linux. All the other drivers load without issues.
Excerpt: Bought this for my Grand daughter for College. Very well put together, looks and feels like it will last through her college years and beyond. Easy set up, no problems right out of the box. She loves it.
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Set Up, Performance
Excerpt: I love it. God has really blessed. I was first leery of getting an HP, but I have been impressed, even with the manuals you can download from the web site. I was leery of having an AMD processor in a notebook, because of the heat. The notebook has been quite cool.
Pros: value, Easy to Use, Battery Life, Lightweight, Quality, Easy to Set Up, Performance
Summary: These aren't sold in stores, the HP Pro Book with Windows 7 is the only good laptop I've seen. I've been shopping for laptops for years, on and off. Today's laptops are junk, they are flimsy, Lenovo's are broken before even leaving the store.
Summary: Thank goodness I can still get this with a Samsung SSD drive along with Windows 7. Microsoft royally screwed things with Windows 8, so having the option for Windows 7 is great. Also I can dual boot Linux Operating System in this. It is easy to upgrade as far as upgrading the RAM and Hard Drive.
