HP is one of the superior PC manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and users, and HP also has good reviews for its few processor core PCs.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on computers of a comparable age and type to it.
Fairly Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
At 1.74 gigabytes, the HP 280 G1 has a fairly big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other computers that were launched around the same time as the 280 G1. The average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of few processor core PCs that are a similar age to the 280 G1 is 2GB.
4.3 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version
This desktop computer supports a 4.3 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version on few processor core PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
Price Has Dropped by £43.64
In the last 29 days the price of the 280 G1 has dropped by £43.64.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
At 3.7 gigahertz, the HP 280 G1 has a quite fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that have been available for a similar time to the 280 G1. Across all the few processor core PCs that were released one year ago the processor clock speeds range from 1GHz to 3.9GHz.
There are a number of alternative 3.7GHz processor clock speed desktop computers currently available which you might also want to consider including cheaper desktop computers such as the Fujitsu Esprimo P420.
+3 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many computers that have been available for a comparable time to it.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many few processor core PCs that have been available for more than a year.
2 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most frequently 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.
There are a number of other HDD PCs currently available which you might also want to look at including the Asus VC62B (£234.99) which is cheaper.
If the storage speed of this few processor core personal computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the Acer Chromebox CXI (£270.57) (SSD), or the HP Chromebox (£240.01) (SSD) which is also cheaper.
Only One 3.5" Bay
Most desktop computers that have been available for more than a year have between one and five 3.5" bays, including the HP 280 G1 which has one 3.5" bay.
4 Other reasons to consider the HP 280 G1
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when this HP personal computer was released.
Average Total Storage Capacity
The HP 280 G1 has a relatively standard total storage capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that are a comparable age to the 280 G1.
If you would prefer a desktop computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to consider the HP 300-235na (£329.97) (1TB).
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the HP 280 G1 has a relatively average hard drive capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and type.
If you are looking for a bigger hard drive capacity then you might want to look at the HP 300-235na (£329.97) (1TB).
+2 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the HP 280 G1 has a pretty standard internal memory compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar age and type to the 280 G1.
