Ratings by Category

Operating Noise:
4.6
PerfectRec’s Operating Noise Score is based on fan noise measurements. Laptops with a fanless design, such as Macbooks, receive the maximum score.
Portability:
4.3
PerfectRec’s portability rating takes into account the volume and thickness of the laptop as well as its weight.
Battery Life:
4.0
PerfectRec’s Battery Life rating is based on hours of battery life in typical usage scenarios.
Software Development:
3.6
PerfectRec’s Software Development Score takes into account the many different features of the laptop that make it more or less suitable for software development. In addition to a strong emphasis on overall performance, this score also places very high importance on screen quality. Heat management, storage, keyboard and speaker quality are also incorporated, with fan noise rounding out this score.
Content Creation:
3.5
PerfectRec’s Content Creation Score takes into account the many different features of the laptop that make it more or less suitable for photo editing, and video editing work. In addition to a strong emphasis on overall performance, this score also places very high importance on screen quality. Heat management, storage, keyboard and speaker quality are also incorporated, with fan noise rounding out this score.
General Use:
3.4
The HP 250 G10 is deemed fair for general use primarily because it offers a basic CPU and RAM configuration which handles everyday tasks, but the screen quality is limited by a lower resolution and standard TN panel, which is not ideal for color-critical work. It is relatively portable and provides decent battery life, which supports on-the-go use, though the trade-off is in less powerful hardware and an unremarkable display.
Engineering & Design:
3.1
The HP 250 G10 is equipped with an Intel UHD Graphics card and a TN panel with a resolution of 1366 x 768, which are suboptimal for engineering and design tasks that typically require a more powerful GPU and a higher resolution screen with better color accuracy and wider viewing angles.
Gaming & AI:
3.0
The HP 250 G10 is not suited for gaming and 3D applications because it's equipped with Intel UHD Graphics, which lacks the power needed for these tasks. Additionally, the laptop's screen has a lower resolution and refresh rate, which does not support the high-quality, fast-paced visuals typically required for gaming and 3D rendering.
Build Quality:
3.0
PerfectRec’s Build Quality Score incorporates case materials, display and keyboard flex, hinge quality, chassis rigidity, and overall reliability. Our assessment of build quality includes many details that are difficult to quantify. Our laptop experts use their best judgment to produce the final score.
Keyboard Quality:
3.0
The Keyboard Quality score is based on the PerfectRec experts’ assessment of tactile feedback, typing comfort, keyboard reliability and typing noise.

Nikolay Palaozov | December 2023
"The HP 250 G10 is a decent budget device that surprises us with its high CPU frequencies under load. Still, our configuration has a Core i5-1335U which doesn’t require significant cooling, if choose a 28W P-series processor, maybe the situation with the clocks could be different. If you want to play some casual game after work, a memory in dual-channel is a must because it increases greatly the iGPU performance."
