Chassis, Connectivity, Display HP ProBook 450 G6 (6BN53EA)
It is an elegant design that sports with its silver finish.
Side connectivity, it is well equipped. There are 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Wi-Fi ac wireless modules and Bluetooth 5.0 for connections and remote communications, a HDMI video output useful for easily connect this Ultrabook to a monitor or TV for example, audio and Ethernet ports as well as 3 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it .
The screen adopts lower specifications than the average of its category. Admittedly, it is anti-reflective and therefore more legible than a glossy slab in a bright environment (eg antireflection). But its definition of 1366×768 is standard as its 16 / 9th format lends itself well to the reading of videos. In competition, it is not uncommon to deal with a full HD IPS screen.
Performance, battery life of the HP ProBook 450 G6 (6BN53EA)
The HP ProBook 450 G6 (6BN53EA) is a classic-size notebook for versatile everyday use.
It also takes advantage of NVIDIA Optimus technology that evaluates in real time the graphics needs. In function, Optimus switches automatically and in real time between the processor-integrated Intel UHD 620 and the GeForce MX130 dedicated card.
Optimus maximizes the Intel UHD 620 despite its modest performance because it is energy efficient and promotes autonomy over the greedy and powerful GeForce MX130.
The GeForce MX130 is able to support games not too demanding in graphics resources. Of course, whether with the Intel UHD 620 or the GeForce MX130, it is possible to watch photos and videos.
With its low-power Whiskey Lake Quad Core i5-8265U processor and 8GB of RAM, this Ultrabook delivers good overall performance.
It will seduce those who want to enjoy a great responsiveness in everyday life because it has a SSD storage. As a reminder of a hard drive, a SSD is much faster but also less energy, more robust and quiet.
Thanks to the SSD, we get a better fluidity than with a hard disk as well as start / stop and software launches much faster.
However, the capacity of the embedded SSD is lower than the standard of the hard disks. The 256 GB offered here are suitable for many uses but if it proves too fair, we can always use an external storage unit. Opting for a USB 3.0 device is a good solution because you get fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this versatile Ultrabook, bet on about 7 hours of battery operation in light use. Its transport is further facilitated by its weight of 2 kg and its compact dimensions.
