16 Reasons For
HP Has Good Computer Reviews
We checked 242 user and expert reviews for HP computers and found that on average HP has good reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that HP has good reviews specifically within its few processor core computers range.
Just Released Four Months Ago
As one of the newer desktop computers, this personal computer is likely to use more advanced technology.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on personal computers that are a similar age to it.
4.4 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version
This computer supports a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version on latest PCs.
Quite Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor
At 1,866 megahertz, the HP 280 G2 has a quite fast memory clock speed supported by processor compared to most of the other PCs that have been available for around the same time as the 280 G2. The memory clock speeds supported by processors of newly released similar spec desktop computers range from 1,300MHz to 1,900MHz.
Very Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
When compared to other few processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 280 G2 that we have checked, the max internal memory supported processor of the HP 280 G2 of 64 gigabytes is one of the biggest. The smallest max internal memory supported processor of latest few processor core computers is 8GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 42GB.
+11 More reasons for
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
The average processor clock speed of new few processor core computers is 3.1GHz. At 3.7 gigahertz, the HP 280 G2 has a fairly fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other recently released similar spec PCs.
There are a number of other 3.7GHz processor clock speed PCs currently available that you might want to consider including cheaper personal computers such as the DELL 3250[plb_3343848_price].
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many few processor core computers that were released in the last 12 months. 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 personal computer is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the DELL 3050[plb_2928392_price] (SSD) which is also cheaper.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on computers that have been around for the last year.
Very Fast Memory Clock Speed
The slowest memory clock speed of few processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the 280 G2 is 1,600MHz and the fastest is 2,200MHz. At 2,133 megahertz, the HP 280 G2 has a very fast memory clock speed compared to most of the other few processor core computers that were released around the same time as the 280 G2.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
The HP 280 G2 has a newer internal memory type than most few processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as it. This HP personal computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, whereas most recently released few processor core computers have a DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type.
This computer's internal memory type (DDR4-SDRAM) is in fact the best internal memory type amongst all comparable spec desktop computers that were released around the same time as the 280 G2.
Amongst similar types of computer the worst internal memory type is DDR3-SDRAM.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This personal computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many few processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The HP 280 G2 has more USB 2.0 ports than most of the recently released computers. Most of the computers that were released around the same time as the 280 G2 only have between one and five USB 2.0 ports, however this personal computer has six USB 2.0 ports.
Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory
Across all the recently released personal computers the maximum internal memory range from 4GB to 64GB. At 32 gigabytes, the HP 280 G2 has a fairly big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other few processor core computers that are a similar age to the 280 G2.
Supports One Case Placement
The number of placements supported by the HP 280 G2 is more than most few processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as it. This personal computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most commonly supported case placement supported by latest few processor core computers.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many recently released PCs.
3 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most recently released few processor core computers have between one and five USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the HP 280 G2 which has two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
£18.52 Price Increase
In the last 46 days the price of the 280 G2 has increased by £18.52.
Only One PCI Express X1 Slot
The HP 280 G2 is a one PCI Express x1 slot PC. Most of the other few processor core computers that are a comparable age to the 280 G2 have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots.
3 Other reasons to consider the HP 280 G2
Average Total Storage Capacity
The HP 280 G2 has a pretty average total storage capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been around for the last year.
Computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth considering include the Lenovo 510s[plb_3784745_price] (1TB) which is also higher rated.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the HP 280 G2 has a fairly standard hard drive capacity compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been around for a similar time to the 280 G2.
If you would prefer a bigger hard drive capacity then you might also want to consider the Lenovo 510s[plb_3784745_price] (1TB) which is also higher rated.
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the HP 280 G2 has a pretty average internal memory compared to most of the other few processor core computers that were released in the last 12 months.
Alternative 4GB memory PCs currently available that you might also want to consider include the HP 260[plb_3288098_price] which has better reviews; or the DELL 3650[plb_3437520_price] which is cheaper.
If you would prefer a bigger internal memory then you might want to look at the Lenovo 510s[plb_3784745_price] (8GB) which also has a higher rating.
