HP ProBook 6360b Notebook Review

By on June 16, 2011, 5:06 AM

The ProBook 6360b is the latest addition to HP’s “b” series notebooks and their first in a 13.3” form factor. It's tailored for business professionals with a robust software suite including HP ProtectTools, Power Assistant and QuickWeb. Users will also appreciate the secure display latch, extended life battery options and docking station capabilities.

Our ProBook evaluation unit shipped with Intel’s Core i5-2410M, a 2.30 GHz Sandy Bridge processor that is capable of Turbo Boosting up to 2.90 GHz when needed. Much like the i5-2520M in the ThinkPad X1 we tested recently, this CPU features four processing threads and Intel HD 3000 Graphics with a max TDP of 35W.

Compared to Lenovo's X1, the ProBook 6360b has very similar display specifications, a slightly slower processor, identical graphics and the same amount of memory and hard drive space. But that's where the similarities end. The ProBook is admittedly plain and hefty while the X1 is a slim system which more of a consumer-designed look and feel.

This review compared the 6360p to the X1 which seems a bit unfair. Why not compare to the X220? The two are closer in price and size. I'm thinking more in terms of girth. I'm looking for a small light weight relatively thin machine for <$900. Looking at the 2560p and E220s as well.

My ProBook 6360b has got an optical drive as shown in the picture, but how the heck do I open it?!

Try pushing in at the open switch toward the right. It should pop out enough for you to pull it out the rest of the way.
