+7 More reasons for
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many personal computers of this age and spec.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many personal computers of a comparable type and age to it.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The HP HP 280 G1 is a six USB 2.0 port desktop computer.
Very Big Maximum Internal Memory
The maximum internal memory of personal computers of this spec and age range from 4GB to 33GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 27GB. With a maximum internal memory of 32,768 megabytes, the HP 280 G1 has a quite big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other few processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the HP 280 G1.
Supports One Case Placement
The HP 280 G1 has a greater number of placements than most computers of this spec and age. This PC supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most frequently supported case placement supported by desktop computers of a comparable type and age to the HP 280 G1.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many PCs that have been around for a similar time to it.
1 Reason Against
Only One 3.5" Bay
Most computers of a comparable age and spec to the HP 280 G1 have between one and five 3.5" bays, including the HP HP 280 G1 which has one 3.5" bay.
5 Other reasons to consider the HP HP 280 G1
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when HP released the HP 280 G1.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the HP HP 280 G1 has a pretty typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers of this spec and age.
There are a number of alternative 500GB total storage capacity computers currently available that you might want to consider including the HP ProDesk 400 G1, or the DELL OptiPlex 3020 which is cheaper.
If this personal computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the Acer Revo One RL85 (1TB and cheaper).
Average Hard Drive Capacity
With a hard drive capacity of 500 gigabytes, the HP 280 G1 has a relatively standard hard drive capacity compared to most of the other PCs that have been around for more than a year.
We compared all the other 500GB hard drive capacity computers to this desktop computer and we think the HP ProDesk 400 G1, and the DELL OptiPlex 3020 which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If this HP PC hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Acer Revo One RL85 (1TB and cheaper).
+3 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
The HP 280 G1 has a fairly average internal memory (4 gigabytes) compared to most of the other PCs of this age and type.
Other 4GB memory desktop computers currently available that you might also want to consider include cheaper desktop computers such as the HP ProDesk 400 G1, or the DELL OptiPlex 3020.
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on PCs of a comparable spec and 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.
There are a number of other HDD computers currently available that you might also want to consider including cheaper computers such as the Asus BP6320.
If the storage speed of this desktop computer is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the Acer Chromebox CXI ($319.82) (SSD and cheaper).
