HP is updating its ProBook line of business laptops with new models featuring Intel Kaby Lake processor options, support for up to 16GB of DDR4-2133 RAM, and options for touchscreen and/or high-resolution displays.
The new HP ProBook 400 G4 series laptops come with 13.3 inch to 17.3 inch displays and have prices that start as low as $499 (for a model with a 7th-gen AMD processor).
The model that interests me most is the HP ProBook 430 G4, which is a 3.3 pound laptop with a 13.3 inch display. This model has a starting price of $599 for a model with a Core i3-7100U processor and a 1366 x 768 pixel display, but the laptop is also available with up to a Core i7-7500U processor and an optional 1920 x 1080 pixel display (or an optional touchscreen.
