HP 255 G5 Review, The Best Budget Laptop 2016???

3 Reasons For

Good Brand

We calculated the average reviews for all HP portable PCs and also specifically for HP medium processor core notebook PCs and found that in both cases HP had good reviews.

Has a Front Camera

Like most of the other portable PCs that were launched more than two years ago, the HP 255 has a front camera.

We compared this notebook PC to all the other notebook PCs with a front camera and we think the G500[pl_2213578_price], and the G500[pl_1590594_price] both from Lenovo which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Other portable PCs which also have a front camera that you might also want to consider include the Lenovo G500[plb_1991254_price].

17 Reasons Against

Only One USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Port

Most portable PCs of this age and spec have between one and four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the HP 255 which has one USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

Most of the other notebook PCs of this age and type have a full-size keyboard, however the HP 255 does not have a full-size keyboard.

We think you might also be interested in alternative laptops which also have a full-size keyboard including the G500[pl_2213578_price], or the G500[pl_1590594_price] both from Lenovo.

Quite Small Total Storage Capacity

Medium processor core notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the 255 have total storage capacity of between 1GB and 1.5TB. At only 320 gigabytes, the HP 255 has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other laptops that were released more than two years ago.

We compared all the other 320GB total storage capacity notebook PCs to this laptop and we think the DELL Latitude 3330[plb_2045759_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a notebook PC with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the DELL Latitude 3330[plb_2617097_price] (500GB and cheaper).

This laptop has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many portable PCs of a comparable spec and age to it. 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.

We compared all the other portable PCs that have an HDD storage media to this notebook PC and we think cheaper laptops such as the DELL Latitude 3330[plb_2045759_price] is also worth considering.

Notebook PCs with a better storage medium that might be worth considering include the HP ProBook 650 G1[plb_2059085_price] (SSD), the Fujitsu LifeBook A544[plb_2508415_price] (SSD), or the Asus UX31E[plb_2640626_price] (SSD).
