This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on personal computers of a comparable type and age to it.
Very Fast Processor Clock Speed
When compared to other PCs that are a comparable age to the Esprimo E420 that we have checked, the processor clock speed of the Esprimo E420 of 3.6 gigahertz is one of the fastest. Across all the few processor core desktop computers that were released more than two years ago the processor clock speeds range from 1GHz to 3.9GHz.
SSD Storage Medium
The Esprimo E420 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most similar spec PCs that have been available for a comparable time to it. 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 in fact the best storage speed amongst all personal computers of this age and spec.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed across similar types of PC.
Personal computers with a faster storage speed that might be worth considering include the Shuttle DSA2LS (£148.75) (Flash).
Fairly Big Internal Memory
Across all the few processor core desktop computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Esprimo E420 the internal memory range from 1GB to 16GB. At 8 gigabytes, the Esprimo E420 has a fairly big internal memory compared to most of the other computers of this spec and age.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many few processor core desktop computers that came out around the same time as it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many similar spec personal computers that came out around the same time as 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 computers of this age and spec.
4 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The Esprimo E420 is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port computer. Most of the other PCs of a similar age and type to the Esprimo E420 have between one and five USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The smallest total storage capacity of similar spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Esprimo E420 is 4GB, the biggest is 2TB, and the average total storage capacity is 570GB. At only 128 gigabytes, the Esprimo E420 has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to the Esprimo E420.
If you want a PC with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to consider the HP ProDesk 600 (£434.35) (500GB).
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
Most few processor core desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the Esprimo E420 have between one and five USB 3.0 ports, including the Esprimo E420 which has two USB 3.0 ports.
The weights of personal computers of a comparable type and age to the Esprimo E420 range from 600g to 14kg. The Esprimo E420 is quite heavy (9 kilograms) compared to most of the other few processor core desktop computers that were released more than two years ago.
