HP 250 G6 (i3-6006U, SSD, FHD) Laptop Review

 

Cheap office computer. The HP 250 G6 costs around €500 (~$615), for which you get a 15.6-inch notebook with a Core i3 processor, 8 GB of RAM, a Full HD display, an SSD, and a good battery life.

matte display ; full HD resolution ; remains quiet ; rarely gets warm ; SSD ; AC WiFi ; removable battery

weak brightness ; low contrast ; poor viewing angles ; only one year's warranty ; average WiFi speeds ; slow memory card reader

HP has delivered a simple 15.6-inch office laptop. While the Core i3 processor will not break any performance records, it does provide enough performance for office and internet applications. Better still, the device remains cool and quiet throughout....

Delete the HP software and get a free virus killer.
