+3 More reasons for
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many personal computers that were launched around the same time as it.
The shortest personal computer of a similar age and type to the E420 E85+ is 9.8mm high and the tallest is 560mm. The E420 E85+ is one of the shorter desktop computers of this age and type (only 104 millimeters) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
11 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most computers of a similar spec and age to the E420 E85+ have between one and eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the E420 E85+ which has two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
Across all the medium processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the E420 E85+ the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 700MHz to 1,300MHz. At only 1,100 megahertz, the E420 E85+ has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other personal computers that were released one year ago.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many desktop 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.
If the storage speed of this desktop computer is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the Fujitsu W530 (£127.99) (SSD).
Very Small Internal Memory
Personal computers of this spec and age have internal memory of between 2GB and 64GB, and the average internal memory is 7.8GB. At only 4 gigabytes, the Fujitsu E420 E85+ has a fairly small internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as the E420 E85+.
+8 More reasons against
Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity
At only 500 gigabytes, the E420 E85+ has a fairly small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that came out more than a year ago. The smallest hard drive capacity of desktop computers that were launched around the same time as the E420 E85+ is 1GB, the biggest is 3TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 860GB.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many computers of this age and type.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The E420 E85+ has a greater number of memory slots than most PCs of a comparable spec and age to it. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this Fujitsu computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this computer.
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
The E420 E85+ is a two USB 3.0 port personal computer.
Only One 5.25" Bay
The E420 E85+ is a one 5.25" bay PC. Most of the other computers of this type and age have between one and two 5.25" bays.
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
Computers of this spec and age have maximum internal memory of between 2GB and 520GB. At only 16 gigabytes, the E420 E85+ has a quite small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other PCs that have been available for around the same time as the E420 E85+.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
Across all the personal computers of this age and type the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz. At only 3.3 gigahertz, the E420 E85+ has a fairly slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar type and age to the E420 E85+.
3 Other reasons to consider the Fujitsu E420 E85+
Released Over Two Years Ago
Fujitsu released the E420 E85+ over two years ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.1 gigahertz, the E420 E85+ has a fairly average processor clock speed compared to most of the other computers of a similar spec and age to the E420 E85+.
If this desktop computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the Acer Veriton X4630G (£544.62) (3.2GHz).
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the Fujitsu E420 E85+ has a fairly typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable age and type to the E420 E85+.
If this desktop computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF (1TB).
