9 Reasons Against

Quite Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

Similar spec desktop computers that were launched more than a year ago have max internal memory supported processors of between 4GB and 64GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 27GB. The 260 G1 mini has a quite small max internal memory supported processor (only 16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the 260 G1 mini.

Chart Edit

Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

At only 200 megahertz, the 260 G1 mini has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been on the market for more than a year. Computers of a similar spec and age to the 260 G1 mini have on-board graphics adapter base frequencies of between 100MHz and 690MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 1,000 megahertz, the HP 260 G1 mini has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that are a comparable age to the 260 G1 mini. The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of PCs that were launched around the same time as the 260 G1 mini is 1,100MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 750MHz to 1,200MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

Across all the desktop computers of this type and age the processor clock speeds range from 0.8GHz to 3.9GHz. With a processor clock speed of only 1.9 gigahertz, the 260 G1 mini has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to the 260 G1 mini.

We compared all the other 1.9GHz processor clock speed computers to this desktop computer and we think the Pavilion Mini 300[pl_2715894_price], and the 260 G1[pl_2744010_price] both from HP or the Acer Chromebox CXI[plb_2775942_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a desktop computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the Lenovo M73[plb_3254981_price] (3GHz) which is also higher rated.

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on PCs of this age and spec. 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.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other HDD PCs currently available including 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 you would prefer a personal computer with a faster storage speed then you might want to consider the Acer Chromebox CXI[plb_2775942_price] (SSD), or the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF[plb_2972867_price] (SSD) which is also cheaper.

Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity

The average hard drive capacity of comparable spec computers that are a similar age to the 260 G1 mini is 650GB, and the hard drive capacity range from 320GB to 2TB. The 260 G1 mini has a fairly small hard drive capacity (only 500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that were released one year ago.

We compared all the other 500GB hard drive capacity computers to this PC and we think cheaper desktop computers such as the EliteDesk 800 G1[pl_2229962_price], and the EliteDesk 800 G1[pl_2901416_price] both from HP is also worth considering.

If you want a personal computer with a bigger hard drive capacity then you might want to look at the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_3068674_price] (1TB) which is also cheaper.
