5 Reasons For

Good Brand

HP has good average reviews for its medium processor core laptops as well as across its entire notebook PC range compared to other brands.

Has a Front Camera

The HP 250 has a front camera, as do most of the other medium processor core laptops that have been available for around the same time as the 250.

We compared all the other notebook PCs which also have a front camera to this portable PC and we think the 250, or the ProBook 450 ($349.99) both from HP or the Asus R512CA is also worth considering.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

The HP 250 does not have a full-size keyboard. Most of the other portable PCs of a comparable age and type to the 250 do have a full-size keyboard.

Only HDD Storage Medium

This notebook PC has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many medium processor core laptops that were launched more than two years ago. HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.

There are a number of other notebook PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available which you might also want to look at including the HP 2570p which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a portable PC with a better storage medium then you might want to look at the HP Stream 11 (SSD) which is also cheaper.
