No recommendation for the HP 250 G7, wrong display choice

HP 250 G7 in review: Scrap recycling done the HP way
HP 250 G7 in review: Scrap recycling done the HP way
The HP 250 G7 offers a current Ice Lake processor, a GeForce graphics core, 8 GB of RAM, and an NVMe SSD for just under 500 Euros (~$592). The built-in display is a disappointment.

The HP 250 G7 series offers simple 15.6-inch office laptops belonging to the budget segment; these are aimed at both professional and noncorporate users. It should be clear that no high-quality case materials are to be expected at prices starting at 250 Euros (~$296) (our test device is available for just under 500 Euros (~$592)). HP has chosen a silver-gray plastic case here. Alternatively, matte black chassis are also available. In addition, the laptop belongs to the increasingly rare genre that still has an optical drive on board. 

The HP laptop is powered by a current Core i5-1035G1 quad-core processor of the Ice Lake generation that offers enough computing power for office and Internet applications. This is complemented by the dedicated GeForce MX110 graphics core. This is the least-powerful GPU model currently available from Nvidia, and it's still based on the Maxwell generation. Moreover, the MX110 offers more processing power than the Intel iGPU, which is also available. But the advantage is largely due to the fast GDDR5 memory of the MX110.

The hardware is supported by 8 GB of RAM (1x 8 GB, single-channel mode). An expansion would be possible thanks to the second memory slot (unused). Furthermore, a 256 GB NVMe SSD ensures a fast and smooth system. If necessary, it can be replaced by a larger-capacity and/or faster model. Upgrade and maintenance procedures require the case to be opened. HP hasn't made this process very user-friendly, though.

HP has made a complete mistake with the choice of the display. The company uses a Samsung confuses Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus owners with latest One UI updatevery dim, low-contrast TN model with unstable viewing angles. In addition, the panel also offers poor color reproduction and unsatisfactory color-space coverage.

More information and many benchmark results can be found in our review of the HP 250 G7 15S40ES.

What started as a side job during my computer science studies later became my main job: For more than 20 years now I have been working as an editor and author in the IT sector. While working in the print sector I also contributed to the creation of various loose-leaf publications and published original written pieces. I have been working for Notebookcheck since 2012.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
