HP ProBook 450 G6 (Core i7-8565U, GeForce MX130)
We have covered several HP ProBook 400 series laptops recently, including the 440 G6 and 430 G6. Now it is the turn of the ProBook 450 G6, the 15-inch version of HP's entry-level business-laptop range. The company has equipped our test device with an Intel Core i7 processor and an Nvidia GeForce MX130 GPU that promises to be a good all-round package, at least on paper. Read on to find out whether the ProBook 450 G6 improves upon its predecessor and if it can challenge other established 15.6-inch business laptops.
The G6 is slightly smaller than its predecessor, with it being 9 mm narrower, 6 mm shorter and about 1 mm thinner. Moreover, HP has shaved 100 g off despite having used more metal, but that difference will vary depending on which G6 configuration you purchase. The power supply that HP included with our review unit is also relatively svelte and weighs 339 g.
The ProBook 450 G6 has a matte 15.6-inch display that operates natively at 1920x1080. Our review unit has a Chi Mei CMN15FE panel that achieves an average maximum brightness of 226 cd/m², according to X-Rite i1Pro 2. Please keep in mind that your G6 may have a different display to ours, as many OEMs partner with multiple display manufacturers to build their laptops.
