This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on personal computers of a similar age and spec to it.
Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The Esprimo E420 has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (1,150 megahertz) amongst personal computers of this age. The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of personal computers of this type and age is 750MHz and the fastest is 1,200MHz.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many PCs of this age and type.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This PC has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many comparable spec desktop computers that were released more than a year ago.
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 around the same time as it.
Two PCI Express X1 Slots
The Esprimo E420 is a two PCI Express x1 slot desktop computer. Most of the other desktop computers of this spec and age have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots.
+3 More reasons for
Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
At 3.6 gigahertz, the Esprimo E420 has a quite fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other PCs of this age and spec. Across all the few processor core PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the Esprimo E420 the maximum turbo frequencies range from 2GHz to 5GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.1GHz.
Very Big Processor Cache
When compared to other few processor core PCs that have been around for more than a year, the processor cache of the Fujitsu Esprimo E420 of 4 megabytes is one of the biggest. Across all the few processor core PCs that were launched around the same time as the Esprimo E420 the processor caches range from 1MB to 4MB.
7 Reasons Against
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
With an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of only 200 megahertz, the Esprimo E420 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the Esprimo E420. The average on-board graphics adapter base frequency of PCs of a comparable age and spec to the Esprimo E420 is 310MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 100MHz to 740MHz.
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 desktop computer.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on few processor core PCs that have been around for a similar time to it. 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.
Only One PS/2 Port
The Esprimo E420 is a one PS/2 port computer.
+4 More reasons against
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
The Fujitsu Esprimo E420 is a two USB 3.0 port PC. Most of the other computers of this type and age have between one and five USB 3.0 ports.
Only One 5.25" Bay
The Esprimo E420 is a one 5.25" bay computer.
The weights of few processor core PCs that have been available for more than a year range from 140g to 16kg, and the average weight is 4.7kg. With a weight of 9 kilograms, the Fujitsu Esprimo E420 is one of the heavier PCs that were released one year ago amongst similar spec personal computers of this age.
5 Other reasons to consider the Fujitsu Esprimo E420
Released Over a Year Ago
Fujitsu released the Esprimo E420 over a year ago.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the Esprimo E420 has a relatively standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and type.
If this computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the Asus K31AD (1TB).
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the Esprimo E420 has a relatively standard hard drive capacity compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that are a similar age to the Esprimo E420.
Desktop computers with a bigger hard drive capacity that might be worth considering include the DELL 3847 (1TB), or the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 (£650.63) (1TB).
+3 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 4 gigabytes, the Esprimo E420 has a pretty average internal memory compared to most of the other computers that are a comparable age to the Esprimo E420.
If this Fujitsu desktop computer internal memory is too small for you then you might want to consider the Asus M32AD (£441.04) (6GB), or the Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 (£659.47) (8GB).
Average Processor Clock Speed
The Esprimo E420 has a pretty standard processor clock speed (2.9 gigahertz) compared to most of the other computers that have been around for more than a year.
If this personal computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to look at the Acer Veriton N4630G (3.1GHz).
