HP is updating its EliteBook 700 and ProBook 600 line of business-class laptops with a new set of models that are all powered by AMD Ryzen chips.
The new HP EliteBook 735 G5, EliteBook 745 G5, and EliteBook 755 G5 will sell for $999 and up, while the new HP ProBook 645 G4 has a starting price of $759. All four laptops should be available this month.
You can figure out the screen size for each laptop by looking at the middle number: the EliteBook 735 has a 13.3 inch display, for example, while the ProBook and EliteBook 745 both have 14 inch displays.
So let’s take a look at the specs for the smallest model:

HP says the laptop will be available with a choice of Windows 10 Pro or Home, or FreeDOS 2.0.
The larger EliteBook 745 G5 and 755 G5 have similar designs and options, but the 15.6 inch model makes use of the extra space to add a numeric keypad to the right of the keyboard.
