HP 250 G7 Laptop, Intel Core i5-8265U 1.6GHz, 8GB DDR4, 256GB SSD, 15.6" Full HD, No-DVD, Intel HD, WIFI, Windows 10 Home The HP laptop perfect for the home - or the office

Looking for a high-performance, reliable but affordable computer? This HP 250 G7 laptop with an i5 processor and SSD fits the bill. Its fast, will never let you down and you won't find better value anywhere. And it comes complete with Windows 10 so you can boot it up and be online enjoying a movie or updating social media as soon as you take it out of the box.

This incredibly low price is exclusive to Ebuyer. Don't miss out.

Why you need this HP laptop

It's fast. And it can multitask. The i5 processor means it's a speedy laptop anyway but with the 256GB SSD added to the mix it's on another level compared to other laptops in the same price range. Booting up (starting) the laptop is super-fast and once it's up and running it can easily handle streaming, surfing the net and all the applications you need for day-to-day computing.

Full HD

HP have given their G7 laptop a large 15.6 inch screen. And it's full HD. This makes watching a video, playing a game or surfing the net a real pleasure. And it's ideal for work too.

Connect all your devices

The HP 250 laptop has multiple connectivity options. You can connect all your devices to it. It has two ultra-fast USB 3.1 ports, another USB 2.0 port and an HDMI & RJ-45. Link up your printer, keyboard and mouse. You can also connect to a larger monitor or your big screen TV using the HDMI port.

Take it anywhere

One of the great things about laptop computers is their portability. Unfortunately some are dead weights. But the HP250 G7 laptop weighs just 1.78kg. It's lightweight and very slim. So, it's easy to pop in a bag and take on your travels.

This doesn't look too bad but notebookcheck.net was not too keen on it becasue of the screen:

The HP 250 G7 is not easy to rate. On the one hand, it is a reasonably priced office notebook that is amazingly well-equipped in some areas for the price, but HP’s decision to include a TN display is unforgivable.

Sure, the ports could be more diverse and modern, as could the trackpad. Likewise, it could be easier to maintain, but we expect some compromises from an entry-level laptop.

However, we have not seen such a weak screen in a laptop for a long time, or at least since we reviewed its predecessor. Everything about it is lacklustre and sub-par, which is why we cannot recommend that you buy the 250 G7. HP should at least offer the option of an IPS panel, which would make the 250 G7 a more compelling proposition. As it is, if you can look past the terrible display or will most have it connected to an external monitor, then you will not find many better office laptops for €599 (~$677) than the HP 250 G7. However, we would recommend looking elsewhere if you use your laptop a lot on the go, as the TN display is awful.

SVA = Standard Viewing Angle = TN.

HP's way of hiding what they're selling, making it sound like a VA panel.

220 nits is a bit wank but, sadly, dim screens are increasingly common.
The screen sucks (at least it's full HD?) but the specs are pretty good for the price overall
Lot of people like me are looking for a WFH device which you just plug in a docking station monitor or directly via HDMI and hardly use the in built screen. For those purposes this is a really good piece of kit.

Nicely spotted, that's pretty sketchy if that's what they're intending to go for
I've tested a couple and agree the screen let's it down. Viewing angles aren't very good. For the price it's good but not amazing.

Much cheaper options available if all you wanted was basic usage.
i5 8th gen too, then killed it with the screen.
Screen is awful compare to IPS
Nice find @m3racer123 I have added this to the 'Highlights' section.

Called them up and asked them to refund me £20, she said she couldn't, asked her to ask her supervisor, hold for 2m, boom- £20 back in my account! So cheers for the post
A poor screen is common for business laptops. The corporates buy docks and monitors for day to day use and the thing only needs to deal with occasional use on its own screen. Full HD isn't even enough pixels to be worth it on a 15.6" display. For this money, you can surely get something a lot more pleasant to use.
Ticks all the boxes for the price. Though not perfect, would've been if it was IPS but this is HP's SVA display aka TN

1080p is fine on 15.6". Also more resolution would just drain battery even faster it's a waste plus make it more expensive. As long as it's not the infamous 1366x768 resolution plaguing most cheap laptops it's good.

For this price I disagree, and would look to get at least qhd. For me, however, I am not prepared to compromise on the screen. Others may make different choices.

If you want QHD for this price, you have to put up with an absolutely dreadful processor, so for most people it's not worth it.
I dunno, unless you're a gamer or power user most people can't tell the difference between equivalent specified i3 and i7 boxes from a user interface pov. Have to say I just don't think this is that great a deal.

Bought one a few weeks ago. Not my favourite hp business laptop. It's certainly at the bottom end.
I dont care about the screen. Speed of laptop is more important
