The ProBook 6555b is the AMD based version of the 6550b. It offers the same range of components as the smaller 14.0'' 6455b. These new AMD processors are advertised to run cooler and faster than previous dual core processors from AMD. The 6555b will feature dual, triple, and quad core versions. It offers the HD4250 integrated graphics card instead of the Intel integrated and ATI dedicated graphics card. Even though it is physically larger, the 6555b is in fact lighter than the EliteBook 8540p/w. It offers a range of high-end components such as solid state drives, Blu-Ray drive, and a high definition HD+ LED screen (1600x900). With a lower price tag, the 6555b provides corporate and small business buyers with an affordable desktop replacement option alongside the more expensive Intel based 6550b.
