4 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

The average processor clock speed of computers of this age and type is 2.8GHz. With a processor clock speed of only 1.9 gigahertz, the HP 260 G1 has one of the slower processor clock speeds amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age.

We compared this computer to all the other 1.9GHz processor clock speed desktop computers and we think the HP Pavilion Mini 300[plb_2715894_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to consider the Lenovo M73[plb_3254981_price] (3GHz) which also has a higher rating.

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.

Alternative HDD computers currently available which you might also want to consider include cheaper desktop computers such as the S500 SFF[pl_3113305_price], or the ThinkCentre E73 SFF[pl_2979215_price] both from Lenovo or the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_2229962_price].

If the storage speed of this personal computer is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the Acer Chromebox CXI[plb_2775942_price] (SSD and cheaper), or the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF[plb_2972867_price] (SSD and cheaper).

Only Two USB 2.0 Ports

The HP 260 G1 is a two USB 2.0 port computer. Most of the other PCs that are a similar age to the 260 G1 have between one and seven USB 2.0 ports.
