6 Reasons Against

Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports Quantitys

Most desktop computers of this spec and age have between one and five USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantitys, including the HP 280 G1 which has two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Internal Memory

With an internal memory of only 2 gigabytes, the HP 280 G1's internal memory is one of the smallest amongst comparable spec personal computers that came out more than two years ago. The average internal memory of few processor cores computers that came out around the same time as the 280 G1 is 5.1GB, and the internal memorys range from 1GB to 16GB.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 2GB memory computers currently available including because of it's better review score, the MSI DC111[plb_2580346_price].
