9 Reasons Against

Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

The smallest max internal memory supported processor of desktop computers of a similar type and age to the MI520 is 4GB, the biggest is 32GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 28GB. At only 16 gigabytes, the Zotac MI520 has a quite small max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been available for a similar time to the MI520.

Chart Edit

Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

Across all the PCs of a similar spec and age to the MI520 the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 200MHz to 800MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 360MHz. The Zotac MI520 has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter base frequencies (only 200 megahertz) amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of few processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the MI520 is 1,100MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 790MHz to 1,200MHz. At only 1,000 megahertz, the Zotac MI520 has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other few processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Processor Clock Speed

The average processor clock speed of comparable spec personal computers that were launched more than two years ago is 2.8GHz. With a processor clock speed of only 1.7 gigahertz, the Zotac MI520 has one of the slower processor clock speeds amongst few processor core personal computers of this age.

Desktop computers with a faster processor clock speed that might also be worth considering include the Zoostorm Intel Celeron 1037U (1.8GHz and higher rated).

Only Supports Six Compatible Memory Cards

The number of compatible memory card supported by the Zotac MI520 is more than most few processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it. This Zotac desktop computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most commonly supported compatible memory card supported by desktop computers of a comparable type and age to the MI520. The compatible memory cards "Memory Stick (MS)", "MMC", "MS PRO", "SDHC" and "xD" are also supported by this personal computer.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Hard Drive Speed

The Zotac MI520 has one of the slower hard drive speeds (only 5,400 revolutions per minute) amongst personal computers of this age. The hard drive speeds of PCs of this age and type range from 5,400 RPM to 7,200 RPM.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory

At only 16,384 megabytes, the Zotac MI520 has a fairly small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other similar spec computers that came out around the same time as the MI520.
