Conclusion: HP's ProBook 6540b is a well-priced business notebook with plenty of features. Its performance and battery life are more than adequate and the management software that comes with it is very easy to set up and use.
Pros: Easy-to-use management features, plenty of connectivity, comfortable to use, 7200rpm hard drive, hard drive encryption
Cons: Touchpad buttons stuck when pressed, low screen resolution
Summary: It’s not flashy, but the dour-looking ProBook ticks the right boxes elsewhere: Intel’s Core i5 processor means that there’s plenty of power available, battery life is on the right side of five hours, and build quality is top-notch.
