HP 255 G6

The HP 255 G6 is a cost-effective notebook that promises respectable performance. It comes equipped with 7th generation AMD APUs, sizeable display, and other standard features. HP says they built this one for those who love to work on the go. The company describes the design as durable and mobile. At about 24 millimeters in thickness, the HP 255 G6 is not that slim. But the weight is decent, starting at 1.86 kg. The device makes a stable impression with the surface structure modeled after that of a checker plate. The upper side of the base withstands strong pressure, while the lower side can be pressed in easily. The display is held tightly by the hinges and does not twist when it is opened or closed at only one corner. The HP 255 G6 offers a pleasant keyboard. Although the keys are a little small, it was no issue during long typing. A user will like the crisp but not too firm pressure point. The HP notebook is less suitable for quiet environments though. Friends of a pleasant typing noise will get their money's worth with the keyboard, but the sound is always present and can be annoying in noise-sensitive environments. As for the display, the HP 255 G6 is equipped with a TN-LED display, which displays contents with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. Although the maximum brightness is just over 200 cd/m², this screen is one of the better models. The TN-LED display is characterized only by a mediocre viewing angle stability. However, only at strong angles from above and below, color changes occur. Viewed from the left and right, screen contents remain relatively unaltered. As for the innards, the HP 255 G6 features seventh generation Accelerated Processing Units (AMD). The processors, which belong to the A6 and E2 families, receive support from up to 8 GB of DDR4 RAM. Integrated AMD Radeon R4 takes care of graphic. It is suitable for simple graphical applications and can also display older games at medium settings. HP says the user should expect the notebook to last almost a full day at work (about seven and half hours). This promises decent performance, although nothing out of the world. For storage, there is a 1 TB 5200 rpm SATA hard disk. At 5,200 rpm, this is considerably slower than comparable devices with SSD. Occasional waiting times due to loading programs must be accepted, but are not unbearable. Among the port options on the offering are two USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports, an HDMI 1.4b port, and a VGA port. There is also a multi-format memory card reader onboard. The touchpad has multi-touch gestures enabled. A Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 adds an extra layer of security. For online collaboration, users get a VGA or HD camera along with a pair of integrated stereo speakers. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

Slow start. With the 255 G6, HP offers a very affordable entry-level notebook. Using an AMD processor and a replaceable battery, our test device could be given a buying recommendation. However the moderate system performance and cheap production leave much to be desired.
