In contrast to the external surface, the worker is built on a combination of silver and black colors. The frame around the display is dark, it usually provides a webcam lens. In general, due to the predominantly light coloring, the notebook seems larger than it actually is. At 380 x 253 x 24 mm it does not differ much from most average competitors in thickness. However, it is nice to realize that the weight of 1.86 kg will not become a hindrance for business trips and other trips. The matrix in the HP 250 G6 notebook screen is made using VA technology. The visibility of the display is not bad and black color is transmitted uniformly and realistically. However, it does not quite reach the viewing angle of IPS displays. This 15.6-inch matte screen has a good level of contrast and is optimal for a variety of tasks with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. But its brightness of the 250 cd/m² is only enough for comfortable work in the room.
The HP 250 G6 (1XN75EA) runs on Windows 10 Pro and is equipped with a fairly productive filling. In the laptop, there is a low-voltage processor called Intel Core i7-7500U. The chip provides two cores, which can simultaneously handle four data streams. Its clock rate can increase from the base frequency of the 2,700 MHz up to 3,500 MHz thanks to the Turbo Boost technology. The Core i7-7500U has enough power for modern tasks, not only for simple office applications and web surfing. This configuration features 8 GB of DDR4-2133 MHz RAM, and this is quite enough. A user can store data on a 256 GB SSD, which differs from the hard disk by a higher speed of operation. For graphics tasks, there is an integrated Intel HD Graphics 620 accelerator with DirectX 12 support, no discrete graphics card.

Hands-on article by Jagadisa RajarathnamIntel HD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2) found on some Kaby-Lake CPU models (15 W ULV series). Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
