HP ProBook x360 440 G1
Versatile and suitable for daily use The HP ProBook x360 440 G1 is an affordable 14-inch convertible that HP has designed with professionals and smaller businesses in mind. The x360 440 G1 is a versatile device thanks to its convertible design and long battery life. Find out in this detailed review whether the ProBook x360 440 G1 has any drawbacks and how it fares against its competitors.
HP has designed the x360 440 G1 to appeal to professionals and small to medium-sized businesses, something which the device’s relatively affordable pricing reflects. Moreover, the x360 440 G1 offers a good combination of performance, versatility, security and multimedia features.
The x360 440 G1’s case is mostly made of plastic with a silver finish except for the keyboard deck, which is made of aluminum that has a brushed black finish. The silver case looks good and feels good in the hand. However, the device feels cheaper than those that are entirely made of aluminum. In short, the x360 440 G1 feels like a budget device. This is no bad thing though as the quality of our test device is impeccable with all gaps between materials being small and even.
What’s more, the x360 440 G1 is sturdy despite being a mostly plastic device. Our test device creaks slightly when we twist it, but we still need to apply plenty of force to make this happen. Likewise, the display lid is difficult to twist probably because of the added strength from using a glass touchscreen display. Moreover, the display lid resists pressure well albeit we could induce some slight deforming to the LCD. We were unable to deform the keyboard deck either.
The x360 440 G1 has a 360-degree hinge, as the name implies, which allows the device to be used in four modes; laptop, presentation, tablet and tent. The hinges are sufficiently well designed for one-handed opening, but the display does teeter somewhat when opening the display.
