Medium processor core notebook PCs that were released more than two years ago have screen sizes of between 10" and 18", and the average screen size is 15".

We compared all the other 15.6" notebook PCs to this notebook PC and we think because of it's better review score, the Lenovo B590[plb_2211424_price] is also worth considering.

If this portable PC screen size is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Lenovo G70-70[plb_3375260_price] (17.3" and cheaper).

Has a Full-Size Keyboard

Like most of the other laptops of this age and type, the HP 250 has a full-size keyboard.

We compared this notebook PC to all the other portable PCs with a full-size keyboard and we think cheaper laptops such as the DELL Latitude 12 5000[plb_2517764_price] is also worth considering.

We compared this laptop to all the other portable PCs with a full-size keyboard and we think the HP 250[plb_2554130_price], or the Asus V550CA[plb_1633423_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Front Camera

Like most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the 250, the HP 250 has a front camera.

We think you might also be interested in other portable PCs which also have a front camera including the X555LA[pl_2656975_price], or the V550CA[pl_1633423_price] both from Asus or the HP 250[plb_2554130_price].
