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


Compelling. The ProBook 470 recommends itself as a desktop replacement for the PC at home. Low operating noise, low temperature development, decent upgrade options and good input devices make that possible. The ProBook's Full HD screen also stands out...

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.
