Very Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

When compared to other comparable spec notebook PCs that were launched more than two years ago that we have checked the on-board graphics adapter base frequency of, the HP 250 G1's on-board graphics adapter base frequency of 650 megahertz is one of the fastest. The slowest on-board graphics adapter base frequency of laptops that were released more than two years ago is 200MHz, the fastest is 650MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 370MHz.

Chart Edit

Has a Full-Size Keyboard

Like most of the other notebook PCs of a similar type and age to the 250 G1, the HP 250 G1 has a full-size keyboard.

We compared this notebook PC to all the other portable PCs with a full-size keyboard and we think the ProBook 450 G1 (£350.00), and the ProBook 450 G1 both from HP or the Acer Aspire V5-431 (£350.00) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Has a Front Camera

The HP 250 G1 has a front camera, as do most of the other comparable spec notebook PCs that are a similar age to the 250 G1.

We compared all the other notebook PCs with a front camera to this laptop and we think cheaper notebook PCs such as the HP ProBook 450 G1 (£350.00), and the Acer Aspire V5-431 (£350.00) is also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at other laptops which also have a front camera including the Lenovo M30-70.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative portable PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available including the Asus PU551LA (£324.99) which is cheaper.

If the storage medium of this portable PC is not good enough for you then you might want to look at the HP EliteBook 840 G1 (£784.00) (SSD) which is also cheaper.
