11 Reasons Against

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

Personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 550-254na have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 500MHz and 1,400MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz. At only 950 megahertz, the 550-254na has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 550-254na.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

The average processor clock speed of comparable spec PCs that were launched around the same time as the 550-254na is 3.1GHz. With a processor clock speed of only 2.7 gigahertz, the HP 550-254na has one of the slower processor clock speeds amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 2.7GHz processor clock speed PCs currently available including the HP 550-252na (£462.00), the Lenovo M700 (£416.09), or the Acer Veriton X2640G (£377.98) which is cheaper.

If you would prefer a computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the 400 G3 (£469.97) (3.2GHz and cheaper), the 400 G3 (£417.97) (3.2GHz and cheaper), or the 400 G3 (£395.99) (3.2GHz and cheaper) all from HP.

HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time 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.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other HDD computers currently available including cheaper personal computers such as the Veriton X2632G (£423.24), or the Veriton X2640G (£377.98) both from Acer or the HP 550-251na (£440.40).

PCs with a faster storage speed that might be worth looking at include the OptiPlex 3040 (£457.97) (SSD and cheaper), or the OptiPlex 3040 (SSD and cheaper) both from DELL or the HP ProDesk 400 G3 SFF (£386.98) (SSD and cheaper).
