We compared all the other HDD PCs to this desktop computer and we think the Acer Veriton X2640G[plb_3426584_price], and the HP 260 G2[plb_3843085_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Desktop computers with a faster storage speed that might be worth looking at include the OptiPlex 3040[pl_3242114_price] (SSD), or the OptiPlex 3040[pl_3361212_price] (SSD) both from DELL which is also cheaper.

3 Reasons Against

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

Across all the desktop computers that were released in the last year the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 100MHz to 690MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 320MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of only 300 megahertz, the HP 280 G2 has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter base frequencies amongst desktop computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

The smallest max internal memory supported processor of personal computers that are a similar age to the 280 G2 is 8GB and the biggest is 64GB. The HP 280 G2 has one of the smaller max internal memory supported processors (only 32 gigabytes) amongst few processor core computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

With a processor clock speed of only 2.3 gigahertz, the HP 280 G2 has one of the slower processor clock speeds amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age. The processor clock speeds of computers that were launched in the last year range from 1GHz to 3.7GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 2.3GHz processor clock speed computers currently available including cheaper desktop computers such as the Acer Veriton X2640G[plb_3807262_price].

Personal computers with a faster processor clock speed that might also be worth looking at include the 400 G2 DM[pl_3862601_price] (3.2GHz and cheaper), or the 410-135na[pl_3821035_price] (3.7GHz and cheaper) both from HP.
