The flood of new PCs making their debut at Computex 2018 continues, and the latest entry is from none other than HP. The company today took the wraps off of the latest entry in its professional ProBook line, the ProBook x360 440.
Taking a cue from the naming scheme of HP's other premium convertible laptops, the ProBook's main attraction is that its screen can rotate between laptop, tablet, and tent modes, and anywhere in between. The laptop's 14-inch display is also compatible with HP's Active Pen, so you can jump from typing to inking on a whim.
As a business laptop, of course, HP has also placed a large emphasis on security here. In terms of authentication, the ProBook x360 440 supports multiple factors with an optional fingerprint sensor and IR facial recognition camera. That's backed up by further tools, including HP Device Access Manager, HP SpareKey, and HP Password Manager. HP's Sure Click can also help protect from malware and viruses with hardware-level security, and BIOSphere Gen 4 can help keep the device automatically updated and secure at the firmware level.
In terms of specs, the ProBook x360 440 is available with a range of Intel processors, including Intel's latest 8th Gen chips. You can also configure the device with up to 16GB of RAM, up to 512GB of SSD storage, and discrete NVIDIA GeForce MX130 graphics.
