It's got the basics. The HP 250 G3 is a 15.6-inch notebook currently priced at just 270 Euros (~$339). Did HP really just slim down their device where there was beef to spare, or did their frugal measures cross the line?

Hands on: HP 250 G4 review
Source: Techradar English
A low-resolution display is the all that mars an otherwise impressive package here. It's rare that you'll get an Intel Core-series processor lurking in a laptop like the HP 250 G4, and that alone means that businesses should at least consider it for workers who undertake certain tasks. It's not the prettiest or lightest 15-inch laptop out there, and users will need to hook it up to an external display for working with multiple applications or browser windows side-by-side.

90% With a Core i3 processor, this plain-looking laptop is one of the best budget bargains
Source: PC Advisor English
Those after something flashy may not find an awful lot of appeal in the HP 250 G4. However, it’s one of the best-value, low-cost laptops you can find right now. As well as having a very good CPU for an affordable machine, it has loads of storage, good build quality and plenty of RAM. HP’s upgrades are keenly-priced too. Spend a bit more and you’ll get a surprisingly fast machine with a good-size SSD. You’ll need to spend considerably more to get good screen quality, though. While the display here is practical, poor colour and contrast don’t make it a good fit for an entertainment device.

HP 250 G5 SP X0N33EA

The HP 250 series is laptop made for home users and students. The series ultimately offers good performing laptops in a basic chassis for an affordable price. The HP 250 G5 SP X0N33EA is the 5th generation of the HP 250 series laptop featuring higher performance hardware than its predecessor. Similar to the previous generation of the laptops, the HP 250 G5 SP X0N33EA features a full plastic chassis. The lid of the laptop is silver in colour and features a  lined texture.  Despite being a full plastic chassis, the HP 250 G5 SP X0N33EA has a brushed aluminium look around the keyboard as an effort to make it looking more premium. With its decent design, the laptop looks mostly simple and plain. The laptop weighs at 2.104kg (74.22 oz / 4.64 pounds) and measures at 24 x 384 x 255 mm (0.94 x 15.12 x 10.04 in).
HP 250 G5 SP X0N33EA features an Intel Core i5 processor with 8GB of  RAM and a 256 GB solid state drive. The processor can clock up to 2.7 GHz for a short time with Intel Turbo Boost technology. This setup comes with the integrated Intel graphics, which isn't enough for any kind of proper gaming, further solidifying its main purpose. As for the display, it features a 15.6 inch 16:9 Full HD TN panel display with a pixel density of 141 PPI. The display is a matte display which does not capture fingerprints and reflect as much environmental lighting as a glossy panel. However, the TN panel doesn't offer good contrast ratio and lacks in brightness.
The Intel Skylake-U/Y PCH audio adapter connected to the stereo speaker delivers high definition audio, making it suitable for media playback. Sound produced by these speakers is clear and crisp with good bass, at least good enough for a basic laptop. Besides that, it has a VGA webcam capable of capturing at a resolution of 640 x 480 pixel. The laptop also features an HP DVD-RW DU8A6SH optical drive which provides convenience in reading or writing discs on the go. Many laptops on the market does not offer optical drive as an effort to make the laptop slimmer and thinner, so this is an advantage.
The battery of the laptop is a 41 Wh Lithium-Ion removable 4 cells battery which isn't much. It will last for about 4 hours with normal usage. The HP 250 G5 SP X0N33EA is a great laptop for a typical user who requires a budget-friendly laptop with proper processing power. It does this right by eliminating other unneeded features and a fancy body. Among its rivals are the Dell Inspiron 15 and the Asus TP501U. Both of them offer almost similar specs and price but might look slightly better. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

Generation change. Higher processing performance, finally a Full HD display and a faster storage device turn HP's new notebook into a true office all-rounder. Despite these new features, the laptop has also inherited disadvantageous properties.

Cheap and slow. The 6 W Celeron CPU makes for a subpar Windows 10 experience even when equipped with a primary SSD. Quiet operation and long battery life are the main benefits for such a low-power configuration.

HP 250 G6 1XN75EA

The HP 250 G6 1XN75EA is a business-oriented laptop that focuses on mobility. The notebook immediately attracts attention with its simplicity. Its matte light surface perfectly hides fingerprints, and in the process of work a minimum of additional details in the design does not detract from the tasks set. The form of the case is classical, the corners are slightly rounded. The lid and base of the laptop do not slip in the hands, so the HP 250 G6 can easily be moved from place to place, without worrying that it will fall.  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. The laptop is equipped with a 4-cell lithium-ion battery with a higher capacity of 41 Wh. Besides that, it has two stereo speakers for outputting sound. For the volume, it is enough for a small room, and the sound remains clear at the maximum without wheezing. For wireless networking, the laptop features dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2. The HP 250 G6 1XN75EA is 15-inch laptop which is perfect for the regular user who mixes a little bit of gaming, media and work. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

HP 250 G5-X9U74UT

The HP 250 G5-X9U74UT is one of the cheapest laptops with an Intel Core-series processor users will find, instantly solving many of the most serious day-to-day problems one can run into using a cheap computer. In the case of a limited laptop budget, users cannot argue with this bargain machine. If this laptop looks quite familiar, that is because it has been around for a long time. HP has retained the same design for a couple of years: it is not out to thrill. It is a tool, a workhorse. Note that unlike older versions of this laptop, the 250 G5 does not have a DVD drive. Decked out in black and very dark grey, many will think it is boring. But there are some little aesthetic gems: an embossed pattern on the lid and a texture on the keyboard surround. Both look good when they catch the light, but the biggest benefit is that they put a sensory layer between one’s fingers and the basic plastic that makes up the HP 250 G5’s shell. It can be guessed that this is a cheaper laptop, but it does not feel hugely cheap. No part of the laptop flexes significantly under finger pressure and the hinge feels very solid. Treat it roughly, though, and the mechanical hard drive will probably fail before the shell becomes too damaged. Users will not want to take it out too often anyway, as it is not a hugely portable laptop. It weighs 2.14kg and the 15.6in frame is just not going to fit easily into a lot of bags.

As is typical of an entry-level laptop, the G5 has a basic screen. It measures 15.6 inches across and has a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution. Its colors are clearly undersaturated, making the display look a little anemic. Horizontal viewing angles are passable, suffering from some loss of brightness, but it is only the vertical angle that causes the contrast shift associated with the TN LCD panel used here. Maximum brightness is pretty good, and the fact that the screen has a matte finish means users can use the laptop by a bright window or outdoors. With an Intel Core i3-5005U (dual-core, 2GHz) processor and 8GB of RAM, there are almost no creaky pauses as Windows 10 goes about its daily business. It is refreshing to come across an affordable laptop whose general performance does not feel compromised, a legitimate budget machine that can handle genuine multi-tasking without becoming a chore to use.  The HP 250 G5 has two speakers that sit on the underside of the laptop, and their output varies hugely depending on whether the Dolby DSP software is used or not. Without it, the output is weak and quiet. With it, the sound has a lot more mid-range power and seems fuller. As far as endurance is concerned, this laptop was not designed for amazing battery life. The battery unit can be removed, though, held in place with a clip at the back of the underside. Battery life is on the higher end of what users might expect from a very conventional 15.6-inch laptop. It lasts for five hours when playing a 720p MP4 video, which is similar stamina to what one would get writing documents and doing the odd bit of browsing.

HP 250 G6 2UB93ES

The HP 250 G6 2UB93ES is a 15.6-inch budget laptop targeting entry-level users. As for design, the 250 G6's case is made of plastic. HP finishes the 250 G6 in silver color. It is designed to combine robust design with mobility and affordable features. The HP 250 G6 is equipped with a rock solid Intel Core i3 paired with 8 GB of RAM and a fast SSD. These are very good basis for everyday tasks. While the Core i3 processor will not break any performance records, it provides enough performance for office and internet applications. Better still, the device remains cool and quiet throughout. Besides that, the HP 250 G6 has an SSD with 256 GB of storage space, of which 191 GB are usable after installing Windows 10. It is a pretty good deal for a laptop at this price range. The SSD ensures fast and smooth system performance. It would have been better had HP included a maintenance hatch rather than having to remove the entire base plate for general maintenance and repairs. An Intel HD Graphics 520 handles the 250 G6’s graphics. The GPU can clock up to 900 MHz and supports DirectX 12. The GPU performance could also be improved by enabling dual-channel mode and adding a second identical RAM module. The 250 G6 could be used to play games, but only for games that have low system requirements. The features of the display are a Full HD resolution (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) and a matte surface, which is great because it will not reflect environmental lighting. However, the TN display has poor viewing angles, which means that the 250 G6’s display is practically unreadable from an off-center angle. The display is only readable outdoors when the sun was not too bright. The 250 G6 has good battery life. The 250 G6 has a longer runtime thanks to its better energy efficiency from the i3 processor and larger battery capacity. The 250 G6 is having a 41 Wh battery capacity which is capable of delivering up to 7 hours of battery life. Microsoft Windows 10 Home 64 Bit is pre-installed on the laptop. For network connectivity, it has Realtek RTL8168 / 8111 Gigabit LAN, Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 3168 (a / b / g / n / ac) and Bluetooth 4.2. As for connectivity, it has a USB 2.0 port, two USB 3.0 / 3.1 Gen1 ports, a VGA port, an HDMI port, a Kensington Lock, an audio combo port and an SD card reader. The laptop has a DVD writer, which is not commonly equipped with latest laptops. It is good for reading and writing DVDs on the go. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

An affordable office laptop that packs the latest Intel Whiskey Lake CPU, 8 GB of RAM along with a large NVMe SSD? That would sound like a bargain if it were not for a big caveat that might be a deal breaker for many potential buyers.

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.  

7500U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.5 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.
