If you are on the prowl for a new laptop, it’s probably true that you searched all the big names—HP, Dell, Lenovo, LG, ASUS, Apple—the list goes on. With so many brands and capabilities out there today, it can be easy to get a little overwhelmed when diving down that Google rabbit hole searching for what laptop to buy. At iNetSupply.com we get a lot of questions about HP laptops for both work and personal use, which is why we’ve decided to break down the HP ProBook and HP EliteBook Series here for you today.
The HP Basics
Let’s start with the basics, shall we? Hewlett-Packard has been around since the 1930s and has stayed on the cutting-edge of technology by driving innovation and establishing itself as a worldwide leader of high quality consumer products. Since its beginnings, HP has built their reputation on the production of secure, reliable and high-quality products that are trusted to get the job done! These are just a few of the reasons why iNetSupply.com is quick to recommend HP solutions to our customers; whether it’s an HP laptop, desktop, desktop-mini, or just about anything else HP. Today, Hewlett-Packard actually accounts for nearly a quarter of the global laptop market share!
Which brings us to the HP ProBook and HP EliteBook laptops…
HP ProBook vs. HP EliteBook
We love a good HP ProBook, but honestly, they’re super difficult to come by these days. Due to supply chain issues sparked by the pandemic and an overall increase in demand, they’re few and far between. This is why we recommend an upgrade to an HP EliteBook. While it’s got a slightly higher price tag, it’s nothing eating a few meals at home won’t cover! The HP EliteBook gives you all the same impressive specs as the HP ProBook, just upgraded. And for the superior quality, it’s worth every penny really—it’s a true value buy.
We will say, both options are some of the best laptops out there, especially for business use! But let’s jump into the differences:
HP EliteBook is durable
We put our laptops through hell and back sometimes. We lug them from home to the office, maybe some days you want to work outside when the sun is shining, or you bring it to a customer factory site filled with dust and grease. The plus with the HP EliteBook is that it’s insanely durable. It’s been tested to the ends of the Earth and back, so it’ll hold up literally anywhere, ensuring a longer lifespan for your investment.
HP EliteBook offers higher computing power.
If you are a multi-tasker, the HP Elitebook is your perfect match. While chatting on your company Zoom meeting, you can also be downloading next week’s reports, playing around with numbers in Excel, and maybe even working on your side-hustle website—all at the same time with no speed or lag issues.
HP EliteBook has better battery life.
No one wants to have to plug in all the time, the HP EliteBook battery life averages nearly 18 hours. Let’s be honest, you don’t want to be working for 18 hours anyway, so you can work an entire day without a charge.
HP EliteBook features enhanced security features.
In a world where cyber-attackers are on the prowl 24/7 and your roommate or significant other is trying to use your laptop without asking, security is key. While both laptops are secure, the HP EliteBook offers features like HP Sure Start to protect against BIOS hackers, HP Sure View with a privacy screen, and Sure Click, which protects against ransomware and viruses.
