+9 More reasons for
Supports One Case Placement
The number of placements supported by the HP 260 G1 is more than most computers that were released more than a year ago. The most frequently supported case placement is Vertical, but this case placement is not supported by this desktop computer. The case placements Horizontal are also supported by this HP computer.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
Four USB 3.0 Ports
The HP 260 G1 is a four USB 3.0 port desktop computer.
Four Processor Threads
Most of the other PCs of this spec and age only have between two and three processor threads, however the HP 260 G1 has four processor threads.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the HP 260 G1 is more than most PCs of a comparable age and type to it. The most commonly found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this personal computer. The memory slots 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this HP PC.
The HP 260 G1 is fairly shallow (only 177 millimeters) compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 260 G1. Computers that have been around for a comparable time to the 260 G1 have depths of between 22mm and 1,100mm, and the average depth is 280mm.
With a height of only 34 millimeters, the HP 260 G1 is one of the shorter few processor core PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 260 G1 amongst personal computers of this age. Across all the few processor core PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the 260 G1 the heights range from 10mm to 500mm.
Few processor core PCs that have been around for a similar time to the 260 G1 have weights of between 140g and 16kg, and the average weight is 4.7kg. The HP 260 G1 is quite light (only 700 grams) compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that have been around for around the same time as the 260 G1.
8 Reasons Against
Quite Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
With a max internal memory supported processor of only 16 gigabytes, the HP 260 G1 has one of the smaller max internal memory supported processors amongst desktop computers of this age. The average max internal memory supported processor of comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for more than a year is 27GB.
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
Across all the comparable spec personal computers that are a similar age to the 260 G1 the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 100MHz to 740MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 310MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of only 200 megahertz, the HP 260 G1 has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter base frequencies amongst similar spec computers of this age.
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The HP 260 G1 has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (only 1,000 megahertz) amongst few processor core PCs of this age. The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of few processor core PCs that have been available for a similar time to the 260 G1 is 1,100MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 750MHz to 1,200MHz.
Price Increase of £55.00
In the last few days the price of the 260 G1 has increased by £55.00.
+5 More reasons against
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
At only 1.9 gigahertz, the HP 260 G1 has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other PCs of a comparable age and type to the 260 G1. Across all the personal computers of this age and spec the processor clock speeds range from 1GHz to 3.9GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.8GHz.
We compared this desktop computer to all the other 1.9GHz processor clock speed personal computers and we think cheaper personal computers such as the HP Pavilion Mini 300 (£274.98) is also worth considering.
If this personal computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the HP 300-235na (£329.97) (2GHz), or the Lenovo Thinkcentre M53 Tiny (£315.18) (2.41GHz) which is also cheaper.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is typical of many few processor core PCs that have been on the market for 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.
With a maximum internal memory of only 16,384 megabytes, the HP 260 G1 has a fairly small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that were released around the same time as the 260 G1. The average maximum internal memory of few processor core PCs that were released one year ago is 28GB, and the maximum internal memory range from 8.1GB to 33GB.
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
Most personal computers of this type and age have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports, including the HP 260 G1 which has two USB 2.0 ports.
3 Other reasons to consider the HP 260 G1
Average Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the HP 260 G1 has a pretty standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other PCs that have been available for more than a year.
We compared this desktop computer to all the other 500GB total storage capacity PCs and we think cheaper desktop computers such as the Acer Veriton E430G (£325.00) is also worth considering.
Computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth considering include the HP 300-235na (£329.97) (1TB and cheaper).
Average Hard Drive Capacity
With a hard drive capacity of 500 gigabytes, the HP 260 G1 has a fairly typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other computers of a similar spec and age to the 260 G1.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 500GB hard drive capacity PCs currently available including cheaper PCs such as the Acer Veriton E430G (£325.00).
PCs with a bigger hard drive capacity that might be worth considering include the HP 300-235na (£329.97) (1TB), or the Acer Aspire XC-705 (£314.99) (1TB) which is also cheaper.
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the HP 260 G1 has a pretty average internal memory compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that have been around for a comparable time to the 260 G1.
We compared this computer to all the other 4GB memory computers and we think cheaper personal computers such as the Veriton E430G (£325.00), and the Aspire XC-705 (£314.76) both from Acer is also worth considering.
If you are looking for a bigger internal memory then you might also want to consider the Lenovo S500 SFF (£299.97) (8GB), or the HP ProDesk 600 G1 SFF (£271.15) (8GB) which is also cheaper.
