HP 470 G10 review – its IPS display is a nice surprise

The HP 470 G10 looks like a refresh compared to its predecessor. Again, it’s a big-screen laptop for unpretentious users who don’t need the mobile GeForce RTX 4090 and a 4K display for gaming or content creation. This time around there are no TN displays which is great news. The only panel model here has a 1080p resolution but since it’s an IPS variant we think it’s fine for such a device. In addition, we can hint that it’s a very capable unit when it comes to sRGB coverage and color accuracy.

If you want to play some light games after work, you can pick a device with the optional NVIDIA GeForce MX550. The CPU options include three 15W Raptor Lake U chips. Just like the G9 version, the I/O of the new kid on the block is limited which is a bit strange since the laptop isn’t among the cheapest in its class. Still, at least the upgradability is decent and you even get a SATA slot which is a rare find these days.

The device is also offered with a modest battery, optional fingering reader, and Wi-Fi 6 + Bluetooth 5.3 for connectivity.
