+5 More reasons for
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi DL, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on PCs of this age and spec.
Similar spec personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Esprimo Q520 have depths of between 31mm and 590mm, and the average depth is 350mm. With a depth of only 185 millimeters, the Esprimo Q520 is quite shallow compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the Esprimo Q520.
Across all the PCs of this age and spec the weights range from 38g to 100kg, and the average weight is 7.5kg. With a weight of only 1.6 kilograms, the Esprimo Q520 is one of the lighter medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Esprimo Q520 amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
At only 54 millimeters, the Esprimo Q520 is fairly short compared to most of the other computers of this age and spec. Desktop computers of this spec and age have heights of between 9.8mm and 560mm, and the average height is 300mm.
5 Reasons Against
Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed
The slowest processor clock speed of personal computers of this age and type is 1.3GHz and the fastest is 4GHz. At only 1.9 gigahertz, the Fujitsu Esprimo Q520 has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Esprimo Q520.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is Hybrid-HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on computers that were released around the same time as it. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.
Quite Slow Hard Drive Speed
At only 5,400 revolutions per minute, the Esprimo Q520 has a very slow hard drive speed compared to most of the other computers of a similar age and type to the Esprimo Q520. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Esprimo Q520 the hard drive speeds range from 5,400 RPM to 7,200 RPM, and the average hard drive speed is 7,100 RPM.
Very Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
With a maximum turbo frequency of only 2.7 gigahertz, the Esprimo Q520 has a fairly slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable type and age to the Esprimo Q520. The average maximum turbo frequency of medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago is 3.6GHz, and the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz.
+2 More reasons against
Very Small Hybrid Hard Drive (H-HDD) Capacity
The smallest hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) capacity of PCs of this age and spec is 500GB and the biggest is 2TB. At only 500 gigabytes, the Esprimo Q520 has a quite small hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been available for a similar time to the Esprimo Q520.
3 Other reasons to consider the Fujitsu Esprimo Q520
Released Over Two Years Ago
This Fujitsu PC has been on the market for over two years.
Average Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the Fujitsu Esprimo Q520 has a relatively typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar age and spec to the Esprimo Q520.
If this desktop computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the DELL Precision T1700 (£766.80) (1TB).
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the Esprimo Q520 has a pretty typical internal memory compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the Esprimo Q520.
If you would prefer a personal computer with a bigger internal memory then you might want to consider the DELL 270 (£349.99) (6GB).
