The HP ProBook 650 G2 is the business laptop for those who want the past and the future in one system. The 15-inch notebook ($760 as tested; $1,167 as reviewed) provides a 1080p display and a USB Type-C port, as well as an optical disc drive and a serial port. Companies making the transition to the latest hardware will be able to maintain their legacy peripherals in the process, as long as they’re willing to deal with a screen that isn’t as vivid as competitors’ panels and a keyboard that’s slightly sticky.
The HP ProBook 650 G2 has an all-plastic, no-frills design that feels a bit cheap but keeps all of the focus on your work. The lid is matte black with HP’s logo in reflective plastic. When you open the lid, you’ll see the 15.6-inch, 1080p display surrounded by a chunky black bezel, as well as the full, backlit, island-style keyboard with a number pad and a shiny silver deck.
