HP Probook 430 software has a pretty light amount of preloaded software. HP’s Probook series is cheaper than the company’s business laptop offerings, consisting of two distinct models. First, there is the Probook 600 series specifically designed for larger businesses and the HP Probook 400 series for small businesses, students or self-employed. Today we will look at the specifications of the HP Probook 430 G6.
It is currently the smallest model of this series, with a 13.3-inch display. HP Probook 400 models also sell 14-inch, 15.6-inch and 17.1-inch if you desire a bigger display.

The fan is also easy to clean should it become dusty over time. The keyboard looks tricky to be removed but can be changed when the motherboard is removed.
