HP introduced a new convertible laptop, ProBook x360 400 G1 for the business professionals at the Computex 2018. The 14-inch convertible is powered by eight-generation Intel Core processors and up to a Nvidia GeForce MX130 GPU.
Some of the features of the HP ProBook x360 400 G1 that make it a true companion for businesses include the GP Client Security Manager Gen4 for extra-secure logins. The system also includes the HP Device Access Manager; HP SpareKey, and HP Password Manager. The laptop has a convertible model which means it can be used as a standard laptop, tablet, and in tent mode for various works like presentation.
The HP ProBook x360 400 G1 has grey/silver chassis with the HP symbol stamped on the back of the display panel. The sides of the device hold all the connectivity as well as a cooling vent.
The 14-inch HP ProBook x360 400 G1 comes in two options - the first is an eDP + PSR LED-backlit touchscreen supporting 100% sRGB color gamut brightness. The second option is an eDP LED-backlit touchscreen and covering a lower 67% sRGB color gamut brightness.
The HP ProBook x360 400 G1 comes in a range of options depending on the type of the hardware configuration. In the cheapest version, the laptop is powered by an Intel Celeron 3865U processor, the most expensive by an Intel Core i7-8550U processor. However, whatever version you take, the configuration is attached with a maximum of 16GB RAM.
One can choose from 128 SSD to 512 SSD. There’s a Bluetooth 4.2 built in and the convertible comes in the LTE variant as well. There’s a microSD card reader, a USB Type-C 3.0 input and an HDMI port. Optionally, there’s also a fingerprint scanner and a facial recognition camera that works with infrared.
Other connectivity options include Ethernet via a Realtek Gigabit port, or Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265 802.11ac Wi-Fi with Bluetooth 4.2 support.
The HP ProBook x360 440 G1 is priced starting at $599 and will available later in June.
