  • Core : i7 intel
  • Ram : 8 GB
  • Hard Size : HDD – 500 GB
  • Processor Type : Intel Core i7-4700MQ


You get everything a typical business user could wish for: DisplayPort + VGA, a real docking port, four USB ports (all USB 3.0), SmartCard reader and an optical drive. A card reader is hidden underneath a USB port at the left side. The bigger 15-inch sibling ProBook 650 even has an additional serial port. The RS232 (COM port) is still often used in the craft sector or industry for measurement devices or to control machines.

A WLAN module from Broadcom (BCM943228HM4L) handles the wireless connections. The dual-band 802.11 n adaptor (half mini-card) supports 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz networks and you can set-up the router accordingly if the 2.4 GHz frequency is overcrowded or blocked. Broadcom also supports Bluetooth 4.0. The range of the two antennas was impressive: We could use the ProBook 640 more than 10 meters away from the 45 meters mark (two bars, interruption-free web browsing). The connection to the router (Fritz!Box 7270 @100%, clear view, one wall) was only lost after this point. Perhaps the range is a result of the plastic cover (that covers the antennas). The Gigabit-Ethernet chip is provided by Intel’s I217-V (ClarkvilleV) adaptor, which is not supported when you use vPro

The fingerprint sensor, the hard drive encryption, Intel’s Anti-Theft/Computrace as well as the Kensington lock are the obvious features. Our review unit was not equipped with a TPM module. The UEFI BIOS (GUI, can be operated with a mouse) has numerous settings to adjust the hardware settings and security. There are even several system and component tests (processor, touchpad, battery including calibration etc.). The BIOS management enables a rollback if an update did not work properly. The Security Level allows allocating rights (change, hide, view) for each device (USB, Turbo Boost) and each function (e. g. virtualization, VTx, AT). The options cover even the smallest details – only real business notebooks offer that.
