HP 250 G5 SP X0N33EA Notebook Review


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.

bluish display ; fan is always on ; fan noise ; difficult maintenance ; no dual-channel RAM out-of-the-box

HP 250 G5 Y1V08UT (Celeron N3060, HD) Notebook Review


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.

no CPU throttling; low running temperatures ; long runtimes; low power consumption ; removable Li-Ion battery pack ; upgradeable HDD and RAM ; HDMI and VGA ; inexpensive ; silent

HP 250 G5 review


Standing a clear head-and-shoulders above most of the competition for performance, this may not be the best-looking laptop, but it's the one you'd be happiest to use day to day. Here's our HP 250 G4 review.

The left and right hand click buttons are so hard to push that it makes my wifes wrists hurt and is no longer able to use the laptop. Wish I had never bought it.

For it's spec this laptop is very good value. I'd recommend it

Have had the laptop a week, no bad points yet. The function keys don't work but I think that's a software issue

HP 250 G5 (i5-7200U)


Fast, quiet, good battery life, lighter than I expected!

Maybe not as visually appealing as initially hoped, but actually have grown to appreciate its simple, clean lines. -Its speed and usability certainly make up for any initial design concerns!!
