HP 250 G3 Laptop Review

hp-250-g1-2Before getting connected to HP we need to review its pros and cons. From display to the internal functioning everything appeals to the buyers. Where its robust structure matters, its looks are also considered that must go with your personality. HP 250 G3   offers you certain features that will even make you drool over it or you might just go for some other product.

Reasons to Support


Starting from its construction; it is entirely made up of matte plastic. Matte plastic benefits you with a scratch resistant surface along with no fingerprints and easy in gripping. It is 2.8 cm (~1.1 inches) and weighs only 2.14kg with 15.7-inch display making it quite portable and easy for you to carry anywhere.

Input Devices

It is provided with a chiclet keyboard that is famous these days in netbooks and notebooks. Because of the design of the keys and the way this keyboard is designed, these flat keys will feel softer while typing especially for rigorous typing your fingers will not get tired. A smooth touch-pad measuring 11.1 cm x 5.4 cm (~4.4 x 2.1 inches) with click keys will surely spare you from the pain of keeping a spare mouse. For website surfers, this touchpad is perfect as it executes multi-touch commands and moves very fluidly. All in all this handsome notebook will not disappoint you when it comes to its input devices.


LG have contributed in providing it with 15.6-inch TN display that have a resolution of up to 1366×768 pixels. In both AC power mode and battery mode the panels runs at an average brightness of 206 cd/m². With a contrast of 841:1 and black value of 0.24, it does considerably better here.

Processor and Graphics

To make their product affordable HP have installed an Intel Celeron N2830 dual-core processor. Such type of processors are usually found in smaller notebooks or netbooks and provide you with a base clock of frequency of 2160MHz. Comparing out product with other products: Intel Celeron 2955U in Acer Aspire E1-532 is based on Haswell architecture rather than the HP device’s Bay Trail Architecture and have proven to provide better results. Our notebook houses a Bay trail version of Intel HD Graphics, directly integrated into the CPU whereas the other competitors that include Acer Aspire E1-532 boasts a Haswell version of the Intel HD Graphics and the HP Compaq 15 has an AMD Radeon HD 8210. Both of these competitors are providing better service compared to our notebook in this area.

Storage Devices

5400 rpm magnetic hard drive installed in this HP notebook provides you with ample space of 500GB.

Power Consumption Rate

The power consumption rate of our product have surely kicked its competitors aside. Where our device require a low 15.4Watts; the Acer Aspire E1-532 needs a much higher 26.5 W.

Reasons to Oppose

Battery Life

HP 250 G3 offers less battery life. The 28.8 Wh should be capable enough to make the machine work for up to six hours but taking our hopes up, our HP computer cuts out after just 3h and 29 min whereas its competitors are promising a longer battery life.

Case and Connectivity

Though out device is lighter in weight but have a thicker structure with 1-3 mm (~0.03-0.11 inches). Assembled cleanly but the frame around the Ether port is rather sharp-edged and a little pressure can be harmful for the display lid. You will be provided with three USB port but only one of the port supports USB 3.0. that is not highlighted with blue unlike other notebooks. For easy accessibility to the power input and the Kensington lock, all of these computer’s connections are located towards the front but it comes with the disadvantage of getting all devices and cables near the front of the notebook get tangled, might become a headache when it comes to USB-based mouse.

No maintenance hatch is made rather sealed construction is done and battery can be removed without any tools which Acer Aspire E1-532 unapprove of for inexpensive notebooks.

Outdoor Performance

For outdoor use, the TN panel’s is pitiful as it provides less brightness and display will not be visible in sunny days.

Low Graphics

A bad news for the fans of computer games, because of its weak hardware performance we will suggest you not to play new games on this system. Some older games can be played with low graphics settings.

System Noise

Though it have a fanless construction that might make it quieter but the sharp clicking sounds from its hard drive have been complained by many users that is found quite disturbing.

Audio Quality

It will not provide you with great audio quality so it will be hated by music lovers but for occasional films or YouTube clips it will be sufficient enough.

Might not be good enough for gamers or music lovers but it is a convenient device for basic use that include office work or internet surfing, also perfect for students who are looking for an inexpensive assistant for their studies. Because of its light weight and compact display they can carry it quite easily without getting bothered by its weight and fear of getting its matte display ruined by scratches.
