Back in January, HP expanded its ProBook laptop series with the x360 435 G7 model. The product will be available in May.

The HP ProBook 445 G7 and HP ProBook 455 G7 are the company’s first commercial products to feature the latest AMD Ryzen 4000 series of mobile processors. AMD introduced its Ryzen 4000 series processes at CES in January.

Here are some of the ProBook features:

  • Performance and productivity. The latest ultra-responsive AMD Ryze 4000 Series is available with four-, six-, or eight-core mobile processors and offers long battery life. PCs recharge quickly to get up to 50% battery life in 30 minutes with HP Fast Charge.

  • Multilayered security protection below, in and above the OS (operating system). Users stay protected with built-in security and privacy features from the BIOS up, including HP Sure Start, HP Sure Sense, HP Privacy Camera and optional HP Sure View Gen 3. The self-healing BIOs HP Sure Start for AMD automatically recovers from firmware attacks or corruption without IT or user intervention. HP Sure Sense uses deep learning AI to identify and quarantine never-before-seen attacks. This helps to prevent infections before they happen. The integrated HP Privacy Camera includes a physical shutter to block the lens to prevent malicious surveillance. There’s also an optional HP Sure View Gen3. This instantly blocks prying eyes from seeing your screen because it reduces visual light when viewed from the side.

  • Built for business and productivity for the modern workstyles. The ultra-slim devices have a 180-degree hinge, lay-flat design and passed 19 MIL-STG 810G tests. It features a durable aluminum cover that holds the near borderless display and a 3-D-forged aluminum keyboard deck. Users who want to transition to desktop productivity can opt for the HP USB-C Dock G5. HP also offers an HP Extended Range Wireless LAN that allows greater distance from transmission point and fast data throughput at shorter ranges. There also is an option for a fast connection in dense wireless environments with gigabit-speed Wi-Fi 6.

The two new commercial-grade HP ProBook laptop models are designed for business users and are powered by Windows 10. The devices will be available later this month.
