Chart Edit

Has a Full-Size Keyboard

Like most of the other notebook PCs of a similar age and spec to the 250 G4, the HP 250 G4 has a full-size keyboard.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other laptops with a full-size keyboard currently available including the Lenovo Z50-70[plb_3075592_price], or the HP EliteBook 840 G2[plb_2941676_price] which is cheaper; or the HP 350 G2[plb_2889567_price] which has better reviews.

The HP 250 G4 has a front camera, as do most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for more than a year.

We compared all the other notebook PCs with a front camera to this notebook PC and we think the HP 350 G2[plb_2889567_price] which has better reviews; or the Toshiba Satellite Pro A50-C[plb_2962162_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

Alternative laptops which also have a front camera that you might also want to consider include the Acer Aspire E5-573[plb_3009234_price].

At 500 gigabytes, the HP 250 G4 has a fairly standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other laptops of this type and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 500GB total storage capacity portable PCs currently available including a cheaper notebook PC such as the HP EliteBook 820[plb_2862104_price] or you might consider a better rated notebook PC such as the DELL Latitude 15[plb_2800157_price].

If you want a notebook PC with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the Lenovo G50-80[plb_3258707_price] (1TB) which is also cheaper.

Average Internal Memory

At 4 gigabytes, the HP 250 G4 has a pretty average internal memory compared to most of the other portable PCs that have been available for more than a year.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 4GB internal memory notebook PCs currently available including the Lenovo Z510[plb_2979742_price] which is cheaper.

If you want a bigger internal memory then you might also want to look at the G50-80[pl_3228265_price] (8GB), or the Z70-80[pl_3429896_price] (8GB) both from Lenovo.

If you don't mind having a heavier weight then you might also want to look at the HP G4[plb_2905347_price] (2.1kg).

Good price, specs are solid, and HP is a known manufacturer. For its price, it was quite thin and light - but that is becoming more popular these days
Super Fast Proccesor
Easy To Use
The build quality is less than optimal, but not surprising at this price bracket. The plastic just feels light. I appreciate that the battery was removable, but it wasn't solidly locked in
Very Short Battery Life
I received it today and it already will not start and blinks an error code near the cap lock key 3 blinks, pause, 3 blinks
