Product Description

HP 255 G6 15" AMD A6 4GB 1TB HDD FreeDOS Laptop

Want a cheap laptop but don't want to compromise on performance? This HP 255 G6 laptop could be exactly what you're looking for. It's probably the cheapest HP laptop you'll find. And because it's HP you know you're getting a reliable, well made PC from one of the most recognisable brands in tech.

But before we look at what the laptop can do we must make it clear:

No Windows 10

This HP 255 laptop is supplied with FreeDOS. This means it DOESN'T have Windows 10 installed. If you want Windows, and most home users will, you will need to buy Windows 10 separately and install it on the laptop yourself. Please don't buy this laptop if you're uncomfortable with installing software.

So the laptop doesn't have Windows. But what does it have?

Under the hood

It comes with an AMD A6 processor which can handle all your everyday computing needs. Surfing the net, updating social media and sending emails for example. The 4GB of RAM is enough memory for a home user and the massive 1TB hard drive will comfortably store all your media files, photos, documents etc.

Large screen

The HP 255 comes with a large 15.6" HD LED display. This is the ideal size for working on or watching online videos. The laptop is fitted with a DVD drive so you can watch movies or install applications from disc.


As you'd expect from a HP laptop this PC has all the connectivity options you need. There's two superfast USB 3.1 ports along with a USB 2.0. And it also has the all-important HDMI port for connecting your TV, monitor or other compatible device. VGA, LAN and headphone/microphone jack complete the connectivity options.


Weighing in at under 2KG you can comfortably take this laptop with you wherever you go. Ideal if you like to work while you're travelling to the office or university.
