"The HP ProBook 6455b and 6555b offer AMD Phenom II, Turion II, Althon II, and V-series processors to accommodate a wide range of performance options. HP is now putting a huge emphasis on performance, claiming these models are up to 69-percent faster than previous generation HP AMD notebooks. The models will be offered in 14-inch (6455b) and 15.6-inch (6555b) screen sizes with spill-resistant keyboards, dual-pointing devices and preinstalled Central Management for HP ProtectTools for remote-management capabilities. These models will be available for purchase in June with a starting price of $779."

"The HP ProBook 6450b and 6550b are configurable with a wide range of Intel processors - including the Core i7, i5 and i3 lineup - with either Intel GMA HD or ATI Mobility Radeon HD 540v dedicated graphics. Models include a 14-inch (6450b) or 15.6-inch (6550b) screen size with eSATA combo ports for external RAID assemblies, hard drives, or optical drives. Pricing has yet to be determined, with models scheduled for release in June

The new HP ProBook 4325s, 4425s, and 4525s models will be offered with brushed aluminum cases in either Caviar (black) or Bordeaux (dark red) color configurations. Sizes include a 13.3-inch 4325s, 14-inch 4425s and 15.6-inch 4525s to fit a wide range of business needs. These models will offer Phenom II, Turion II, Althon II, and V-series processors with choice of either ATI HD 4250 or discrete HD 530v graphics.

No, I haven't heard a thing about them. Not even notebookcheck.net has anything on them and they are usually pretty ahead of the curve when it comes to these things.

I hope it's not just one of those renaming things that nVidia was doing.

Yeah, that really wouldn't make sense since ATI released a pretty complete 5000 series for laptops. Based on info from ATI's site, it just looks like a refresh of the 4000 series though I'm not sure why they would bother with releasing more DX 10.1 cards at this time.....

HD 560v has the same specs as 4650M so the performance is pretty much the same

Yeah, that's what I was getting at. It seems to be a random rehash of old tech with pretty much nothing new to offer. They still use DX 10.1 after all...... :sleep:

True,i hope they don't go in the way which Nvidia went(making many graphic cards with same specs)
