Lenovo ThinkBook 15 is a feature-packed Windows 10 Pro laptop designed to improve productivity. It comes in a plastic body design, however, the display lid and keyboard deck are aluminium made. It features 180 degrees rotating hinges that are adequately stable. The laptop weighs around 3.75 lbs (1.7 kg) and you can easily carry it with you.
HP 250 G7 also features a plastic body with a sleek, sensible design. The plastic panels have an embossed texture to prevent the tricky plain surface and offer more grip. However, the plastic body has kept the price on the lower side and has made it reasonably lightweight. The 250 G7 by HP weighs around 3.92 lbs (1.78 kg) with a thick profile of 22.5mm.
The ThinkBook 15 features a built-in chiclet keyboard that offers a pleasant typing experience. Its large keys deliver a short stroke with a somewhat dampened stop. The Up and Down Arrow keys are short in size, almost half than the traditional Lenovo keyboard. The trackpad is reasonably wide, responsive and offers multi-touch gestures.
The 250 G7 is not up to the mark, as HP has followed the not fancy approach. The keyboard doesn’t have a backlight, but keys have appropriate travel distance. The resistance is bearable and the keys provide a pleasant feeling when you touch them. We found Lenovo’s ThinkBook 15 better than HP’s 250 G7 in this feature.
Display is another feature where the ThinkBook 15 has an edge over HP 250 G7. It comes with a 15.6-inch wide diagonal FHD display with IPS technology. The panel features 141 PPI pixel density with a screen resolution of 1920x1080p. HP 250 G7 also features a 15-inch widescreen, but it only offers HD display. The screen resolution is also less i.e. 768p as compared to Lenovo ThinkBook 15’s 1080p.
The ThinkBook 15 offers a wide variety of port selection as compared to HP 250 G7. On the right side, it houses Type-A USB 2.0, Type-A USB 3.1 and a 4-in-1 card reader. Whereas, the left edge houses a 3.5mm audio jack, two USB-C 3.1 (Gen. 1 and Gen 2.), USB 3.1, an HDMI and an RJ45 port.
On the contrary, HP’s 250 G7 houses a few number of ports including two USB 2.0 ports, a USB 3.0 port, an HDMI, a full-size SD card slot and an Ethernet port.
Both Lenovo ThinkBook 15 and HP 250 G7 features quad-core i5 processors along with 8GB memory and 256GB SSD storage. However, the 250 G7 is equipped with an 8th generation CPU, while the ThinkBook 15 is armed with a faster 10th generation processor. Although both are good processors, Lenovo ThinkBook 15 is again the winner here.
However, both are equally capable and can handle tough tasks and heavy software. In case you are an avid gamer, then Lenovo ThinkPad is the right Windows 10 Pro laptop for you. TheIntel UHD G1 graphics offer smooth performance and better frame rates.
Lenovo offers the ThinkBook 15 with two battery options i.e. 45wh or 57Wh. The former can power the laptop for up to 9 hours while the later delivers around 12 hours of battery life. HP has added a 41 Wh, 3-cell battery in 250 G7 which only offers more than 7 hours of battery life.
Both Lenovo ThinkBook 15 and HP 250 G7 are powerful Windows 10 Pro laptops. However, the ThinkBook 15 beats the 250 G7 in almost every aspect from design to specs and performance. The difference in hardware selection is mainly due to the difference in their prices. Nevertheless, HP 250 G7 is worth every penny unless you are not on a budget. If you have a few extra pounds, Lenovo ThinkBook 15 is the right pick.
