9 Reasons Against

Quite Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

At only 16 gigabytes, the Zotac MI520 has a very small max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other computers that have been around for a similar time to the MI520. Across all the few processor core computers that were released more than two years ago the max internal memory supported processors range from 4GB to 32GB.

Chart Edit

Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

The on-board graphics adapter base frequencies of few processor core computers that have been available for more than two years range from 200MHz to 800MHz. At only 200 megahertz, the Zotac MI520 has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of few processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the MI520 range from 750MHz to 1,200MHz. At only 1,000 megahertz, the Zotac MI520 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Processor Clock Speed

The slowest processor clock speed of desktop computers of this age and spec is 1GHz and the fastest is 3.9GHz. At only 1.7 gigahertz, the Zotac MI520 has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to the MI520.

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on personal computers of this type and age. 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.

Chart Edit

Only Supports Six Compatible Memory Cards

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

Chart Edit

Very Slow Hard Drive Speed

Across all the desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the MI520 the hard drive speeds range from 5,400 RPM to 7,200 RPM. The Zotac MI520 has one of the slower hard drive speeds (only 5,400 revolutions per minute) amongst few processor core computers of this age.
