3.5 / 5 stars (66 reviews) - As a salesman for Staples, I have a contrary opinion. Latest review: December 23, 2018 | Model: HP 255 Y1V07UT#ABA
Well, these other reviewers seem eager to jump on the hate bandwagon, so let's do a counter example. Note that nobody, including me is a verified buyer yet. Always a good sign... This would be a 5 star deal, were that resolution just a bit better, preferably 1080p. The arrow keys on the keyboard also are badly positioned, but the rest of it looks solid. This computer at retail is probably $450 tops. That being said, this is a great deal and if you want something on the cheap, the big advantage of AMD's mobile APU's is that they are essentially a micro-CPU/GPU combo. It's like having a low tier GFX card built in. You're not playing The Witcher 3 on this, but it'll handle casual games perfectly. A rock solid gift for a niece/nephew, anyone really under the age of 16, grandma's first computer, etc. It's a good buy that will last a long time. Of course, if you care about gaming or other things, you're not looking in the bargain bin in the first place.Reviewed by: Anthony (Staples Rep) | Read HP 255 reviews...
72% - HP's 255 G6 is a solid notebook for simple tasks. However, a long battery life should not be expected.
Review date: January 1, 2018 | Model: HP 255 G6
Our test demonstrates the 255 G6 as a notebook with strengths and weaknesses. The good sound and average system performance is contrasted with slow mass storage and lack of support for certain screen resolutions. The 255 G6 should not be purchased In a lower configuration than that of our test device... With the 255 G6, HP offers a simple and solid notebook. The device is well suited for office activities and simple games, but the battery life is way too short for a mobile business device. Because simple games can also be played, the application possibilities for our test device are versatile, as long as the demands of the user remain limited.Reviewed by: Mike Wobker | Read full review...
