Background and Identification
The HP 250 G3 is the third generation of HP 250 laptops. It is a budget laptop, so it’s intended to perform simple tasks, but shouldn’t be expected to run any high-performance programs. It has a 15.6 inch screen (measured diagonally). For many users, 15 inch laptops like these hit the ‘Goldilocks zone’ of mobile computers. They’re not too big or small, and they have enough space for a good processor without sacrificing portability. This screen size of laptop is popular with content creators and professionals who want to be able to access the internet and do regular office-style tasks easily, but also want a reasonably portable laptop.
