This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many desktop computers that are a comparable age to it.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on few processor core computers that are a comparable age to it.
Very Fast Processor Clock Speed
The processor clock speed of the Fujitsu Esprimo E420 of 3.6 gigahertz is one of the fastest amongst PCs of this spec and age. Similar spec personal computers that were released more than two years ago have processor clock speeds of between 1GHz and 3.9GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.9GHz.
SSD Storage Medium
The Fujitsu Esprimo E420 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most personal computers of a comparable spec and age 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.
An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage speed across all PCs of this type and age.
Across comparable types of computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
Fairly Big Internal Memory
Computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Esprimo E420 have internal memory of between 1GB and 16GB. At 8 gigabytes, the Esprimo E420 has a fairly big internal memory compared to most of the other computers that are a similar age to the Esprimo E420.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to it.

DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many computers of this age and type.
Fairly Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
At 128 gigabytes, the Fujitsu Esprimo E420 has a quite big solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that came out more than two years ago. The average solid-state drive capacity of personal computers of this age and spec is 99GB.
3 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 few processor core computers of this age. The smallest total storage capacity of few processor core computers that came out around the same time as the Esprimo E420 is 4GB, the biggest is 2TB, and the average total storage capacity is 560GB.
If you would prefer a computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to look at the DELL Vostro 3900 (£298.80) (500GB), or the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 (£199.12) (500GB).
Only One 5.25" Bay
The Esprimo E420 is a one 5.25" bay desktop computer. Most of the other PCs of a similar age and spec to the Esprimo E420 have one 5.25" bay.
The average weight of personal computers of this spec and age is 5.4kg, and the weights range from 600g to 16kg. With a weight of 9 kilograms, the Fujitsu Esprimo E420 is fairly heavy compared to most of the other personal computers that are a similar age to the Esprimo E420.
