Once again, HP has produced a strong 13-inch ProBook. While it is largely unchanged from last year, it is good that the manufacturer was able to retain the performance in almost every department.
1. Remove the bottom plate
Disassembling this device is pretty straightforward. There are 7 Phillips-head screws you need to remove and five of them will remain attached to the bottom panel after they are unscrewed. Then pry your way around the panel and lift the plate away.
As you can see, the ProBook 430 G7 shares the same 45Wh battery with its 14 and 15-inch brothers.
3. Memory and storage
When it comes to the upgradability, though, you can see that this laptop has a lot to offer. Even though we are talking about a 13-inch notebook, you can put up to 32GB of DDR4 memory in dual-channel mode. Additionally, there is an M.2 slot for NVMe drives, and you can put a 2.5-inch SATA storage drive.
4. Cooling system
Here, HP has gone for a single heat pipe. It is approximately five miles long and leads the heat to a heat sink with a relatively small size.
