Hands on: HP 250 G4 review

Small businesses have a number of choices these days when it comes to outfitting employees with affordable computers. HP has thrown another option into the ring with its 250 G4, an affordable budget laptop that comes with a full-fat Intel Core processor that’s more capable of handling business applications compared to others in its price range.


It can be picked up for as little as £224 (around US$269) online, which places it squarely in budget territory and even on an even footing with Chromebooks and low-end 2-in-1 devices.

In terms of its design, the 15.6-inch 250 G4 looks like a budget offering. That’s not saying much these days, with bargain bucket devices such as HP’s own Stream 11 and Stream 14 bringing a splash of color to the low-end.

HP has attempted to make it look less boring by giving the black base a thatched diamond effect, which is repeated in a silver mesh pattern on the lid, but it doesn’t prevent the machine from looking dull.
