HP is one of the better rated computer brands according to average user and expert reviews, and HP also has good reviews for its few processor core PCs.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many similar spec computers that were launched in the last 12 months.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many few processor core PCs that have been around for around the same time as it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on few processor core PCs that have been around for around the same time as it.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The 280 G1 MT has more USB 2.0 ports than most of the new few processor core PCs. This HP desktop computer is a six USB 2.0 port PC compared to most of the latest few processor core PCs which only have between one and five USB 2.0 ports.
3 Reasons Against
Recent Price Increase of £14.98
The 280 G1 MT has increased in price by £14.98 in the last few days.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This personal computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on new few processor core PCs.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The smallest maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of similar spec PCs that were launched in the last 12 months is 1GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 3.7GB. At only 1.7 gigabytes, the 280 G1 MT has a fairly small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other recently released few processor core PCs.
6 Other reasons to consider the HP 280 G1 MT
Released Eleven Months Ago
It was eleven months ago when this HP desktop computer was released.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.6 gigahertz, the 280 G1 MT has a fairly standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 280 G1 MT.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 3.6GHz processor clock speed PCs currently available including the Asus M32AD (£245.97), or the DELL OptiPlex 3020 (£269.00) which is cheaper.
If this desktop computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the Lenovo E73 (£278.99) (3.7GHz and cheaper).
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the 280 G1 MT has a fairly average total storage capacity compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the 280 G1 MT.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 500GB total storage capacity PCs currently available including the DELL OptiPlex 3020 (£269.00) which is cheaper.
If you want a PC with a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to look at the Veriton X2640G (£324.97) (1TB), or the Aspire XC-705 (£299.99) (1TB) both from Acer or the Asus K20CD (£319.98) (1TB).
+4 Other reasons
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the 280 G1 MT has a pretty typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that were released in the last year.
We compared this computer to all the other 500GB hard drive capacity desktop computers and we think cheaper computers such as the DELL OptiPlex 3020 (£269.00) is also worth considering.
Desktop computers with a bigger hard drive capacity that might be worth considering include the Asus K31ADE (£319.97) (1TB).
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the HP 280 G1 MT has a fairly standard internal memory compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the 280 G1 MT.
We compared this personal computer to all the other 4GB memory desktop computers and we think the DELL OptiPlex 3020 (£269.00), and the Asus M32AD (£245.97) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If this few processor core personal computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the Acer Aspire XC-705 (£299.99) (6GB), or the Asus K31ADE (£319.97) (8GB).
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is typical of many few processor core PCs that are a similar age to 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.
If the storage speed of this few processor core personal computer is too slow for you then you might want to look at the DELL OptiPlex 3040 (£294.99) (SSD).
