This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on computers of a similar type and age to it.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been around for more than a year.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many computers of a comparable spec and age to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on personal computers of this age and type.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This personal computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most frequently found EPEAT compliance on medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as it.

+3 More reasons for
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this desktop computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on desktop computers of this age and spec.
The shortest computer of this age and spec is 9.8mm high, the tallest is 560mm, and the average height is 290mm. At only 104 millimeters, the Fujitsu Esprimo E420 is quite short compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the Esprimo E420.
11 Reasons Against
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The Fujitsu Esprimo E420 has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (only 1,100 megahertz) amongst medium processor core computers of this age. Similar spec personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Esprimo E420 have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 700MHz and 1,300MHz.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is typical of many PCs that were launched around the same time as 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.
Desktop computers with a faster storage speed that might also be worth looking at include the Fujitsu W530 (£1,035.63) (SSD).
Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity
At only 500 gigabytes, the Esprimo E420 has a quite small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that have been available for a similar time to the Esprimo E420. Medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the Esprimo E420 have hard drive capacity of between 1GB and 3TB.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This personal computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on medium processor core computers that were launched more than a year ago.
+8 More reasons against
Only Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Esprimo E420 is more than most medium processor core computers that were released more than a year ago. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this personal computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this PC.
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
Most medium processor core computers that were released more than a year ago have between one and eight USB 3.0 ports, including the Fujitsu Esprimo E420 which has two USB 3.0 ports.
Only One 5.25" Bay
Most personal computers of this type and age have between one and two 5.25" bays, including the Esprimo E420 which has one 5.25" bay.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The smallest maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the Esprimo E420 is 1GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 2.8GB. At only 1.024 gigabytes, the Esprimo E420 has a quite small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that are a similar age to the Esprimo E420.
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
The maximum internal memory of computers of this type and age range from 2GB to 520GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 33GB. The Esprimo E420 has one of the smaller maximum internal memory (only 16 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
Quite Small Processor Cache
With a processor cache of only 6 megabytes, the Fujitsu Esprimo E420 has a fairly small processor cache compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been on the market for more than a year. Medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Esprimo E420 have processor caches of between 2MB and 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.6MB.
Only Four Processor Threads
The Esprimo E420 is a four processor thread PC.
