11 Reasons For
HP Has Good Desktop Computer Reviews
HP medium processor core personal computers have good ratings on average and across all computers HP is one of the better rated manufacturers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on comparable spec personal computers that have been available for a similar time to it.
Recent Price Drop of £75.00
In the last couple of weeks the 400 G3 has dropped in price by £75.00.
SSD Storage Medium
The HP 400 G3 has a faster storage speed than most personal computers that have been around for the last year. This PC has an SSD storage medium, whereas most medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to 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.
An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage speed across all medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the 400 G3.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed amongst comparable types of desktop computer.
There are a number of other SSD PCs currently available which you might also want to look at including cheaper PCs such as the ProDesk 400 G3 SFF[pl_3187993_price], or the 400 G3[pl_3784834_price] both from HP.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many similar spec PCs that were released in the last year.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This personal computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is the most frequently found internal memory type on recently released similar spec personal computers.
+6 More reasons for
Quite Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
The smallest solid-state drive capacity of similar spec PCs that came out in the last year is 32GB, the biggest is 520GB, and the average solid-state drive capacity is 210GB. The HP 400 G3 has one of the bigger solid-state drive capacities (256 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
Supports One Case Placement
The number of placements supported by the HP 400 G3 is more than most medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to it. This desktop computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most commonly supported case placement supported by medium processor core personal computers that were released in the last year.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this desktop computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to it.
The depths of medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the 400 G3 range from 33mm to 600mm, and the average depth is 320mm. The HP 400 G3 is quite shallow (only 165 millimeters) compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the 400 G3.
The weight of the HP 400 G3 of only 355 grams is one of the lightest amongst new comparable spec computers. Computers that have been available for around the same time as the 400 G3 have weights of between 38g and 16kg.
5 Reasons Against
Only Four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most recently released medium processor core personal computers have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the HP 400 G3 which has four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Only One DisplayPort
The HP 400 G3 is a one DisplayPort computer. Most of the other computers that were launched around the same time as the 400 G3 have between one and three DisplayPorts.
Only One PCI Express X1 Slot
Most recently released medium processor core personal computers have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots, including the HP 400 G3 which has one PCI Express x1 slot.
Only One PCI Express X1 (Gen 2.x) Slot
Most medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the 400 G3 have between one and two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slots, including the HP 400 G3 which has one PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slot.
+2 More reasons against
The widths of medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the 400 G3 range from 34mm to 7,100mm. With a width of 7,050 millimeters, the HP 400 G3 is one of the widest comparable spec computers that are a similar age to the 400 G3 amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
4 Other reasons to consider the HP 400 G3
Released Eleven Months Ago
It was eleven months ago when HP released the 400 G3.
Average Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.2 gigahertz, the HP 400 G3 has a fairly average processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released in the last 12 months.
Other 3.2GHz processor clock speed desktop computers currently available that you might want to look at include the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_2782875_price], or the HP ProDesk 400 G3 SFF[plb_3187993_price] which is cheaper.
If you would prefer a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to consider the 400 G3 MT[pl_3810816_price] (3.3GHz), or the 400 G3[pl_3787108_price] (3.4GHz) both from HP or the DELL 7040[plb_3817108_price] (3.4GHz).
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the HP 400 G3 has a fairly average internal memory compared to most of the other latest similar spec computers.
We compared this personal computer to all the other 4GB memory PCs and we think the Lenovo M700[plb_3257188_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If you would prefer a bigger internal memory then you might also want to consider the HP 600 G2[plb_3791237_price] (8GB) which is also cheaper.
+2 Other reasons
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 256 gigabytes, the HP 400 G3 has a relatively standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other latest medium processor core personal computers.
PCs with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth looking at include the 400 G2[pl_3746914_price] (500GB and cheaper), or the 400 G3[pl_3785013_price] (500GB and cheaper) both from HP or the Acer Veriton X2640G[plb_3772200_price] (500GB and cheaper).
