HP ProBook 470 G3 (Core i7-6500U, Radeon R7 M340) Notebook Review

Great computer but lacks touchscreen

 

I was all excited to get my customized computer until it arrived and I was disappointed the promised touch screen was not on the computer. That's the whole purpose I customized it. It is lightweight and it works very well.
