This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
The Esprimo E420 has a fairly fast processor clock speed (3.6 gigahertz) compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar spec and age to the Esprimo E420. The average processor clock speed of computers of this age and type is 2.8GHz, and the processor clock speeds range from 1GHz to 3.9GHz.
If you want a desktop computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the Lenovo S500 SFF (£299.97) (3.7GHz), or the Asus M32AD (£441.04) (3.7GHz).
SSD Storage Medium
The Esprimo E420 has a faster storage speed than most personal computers of this type and age. This personal computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most similar spec computers that came out around the same time as it have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.
This PC's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed amongst all few processor core PCs that were launched around the same time as the Esprimo E420.
The worst storage speed amongst comparable types of PC is HDD.
If the storage speed of this Fujitsu computer is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 (£655.39) (Flash).
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This desktop computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most frequently found EPEAT compliance on personal computers of this type and age.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on few processor core PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many PCs of a similar age and spec to it.
+5 More reasons for
Has One Cable Included
The number of included cables found on the Esprimo E420 is more than most similar spec computers that were launched around the same time as it. This Fujitsu personal computer has an AC cable included, which is the most frequently found cable included found on few processor core PCs that were launched more than a year ago.
5.1 Audio Output Channel
This computer has a 5.1 audio output channel, which is typical of many few processor core PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to it.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on desktop computers that have been around for more than a year.
Fairly Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
With a solid-state drive capacity of 128 gigabytes, the Esprimo E420 has one of the bigger solid-state drive capacities amongst comparable spec computers of this age. Computers of a similar age and type to the Esprimo E420 have solid-state drive capacities of between 16GB and 520GB.
2 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of only 128 gigabytes, the Esprimo E420 has one of the smaller total storage capacity amongst comparable spec computers of this age. Across all the computers of a similar spec and age to the Esprimo E420 the total storage capacity range from 8GB to 3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 550GB.
If this computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the DELL OptiPlex 7010 (£214.80) (250GB).
Across all the similar spec desktop computers that are a comparable age to the Esprimo E420 the weights range from 140g to 16kg, and the average weight is 4.7kg. At 9 kilograms, the Esprimo E420 is quite heavy compared to most of the other similar spec computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Esprimo E420.

Average Internal Memory
The Esprimo E420 has a fairly typical internal memory (4 gigabytes) compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that have been around for more than a year.
If you would prefer a desktop computer with a bigger internal memory then you might want to look at the Acer Aspire XC-605 (£557.95) (6GB), the Asus M32AD (£441.04) (6GB), or the Lenovo H30 (£349.97) (8GB).
