9 Reasons For
HP Has Good Reviews for Its PCs
HP medium processor core personal computers have good ratings on average and across all computers HP is one of the superior manufacturers.
Just Released Five Months Ago
HP only released the 400 G3 five months ago. Newer desktop computers like this one are likely to use better technology.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on personal computers that were launched around the same time as it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on recently released computers.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This personal computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is the most commonly found internal memory type on medium processor core personal computers that came out in the last 12 months.
Supports One Case Placement
The HP 400 G3 has a greater number of placements than most similar spec PCs that are a comparable age to it. This HP computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most commonly supported case placement supported by PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the 400 G3.
+4 More reasons for
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many comparable spec computers that were launched around the same time as it.
The HP 400 G3 is quite shallow (only 165 millimeters) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for the last year. Across all the latest similar spec computers the depths range from 33mm to 600mm.
The HP 400 G3 is very light (only 355 grams) compared to most of the other recently released medium processor core personal computers. Across all the recently released desktop computers the weights range from 38g to 16kg.
5 Reasons Against
Price Has Increased by £75.39
In the last 18 days the price of the 400 G3 has increased by £75.39.
Very Small Internal Memory
The HP 400 G3 has a fairly small internal memory (only 4 gigabytes) compared to most of the other recently released PCs. Across all the recently released medium processor core personal computers the internal memory range from 2GB to 32GB, and the average internal memory is 7.9GB.
There are a number of other 4GB memory computers currently available which you might want to consider including cheaper PCs such as the Lenovo S500 SFF[plb_3285164_price].
If you would prefer a computer with a bigger internal memory then you might want to look at the 600 G2[pl_3791237_price] (8GB), or the 600 G2[pl_3816863_price] (8GB) both from HP.
Very Small Hard Drive Capacity
With a hard drive capacity of only 500 gigabytes, the HP 400 G3 has one of the smaller hard drive capacity amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The average hard drive capacity of new PCs is 910GB, and the hard drive capacity range from 250GB to 3TB.
We compared all the other 500GB hard drive capacity PCs to this computer and we think the Lenovo S500 SFF[plb_3285164_price], and the Acer Veriton M2610[plb_3430067_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.
Computers with a bigger hard drive capacity that might be worth looking at include the HP 400 G3 MT[plb_3810816_price] (1TB).
Only One PCI Express X16 (Gen 3.x) Slot
The HP 400 G3 is a one PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slot desktop computer. Most of the other recently released medium processor core personal computers have between one and two PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slots.
+2 More reasons against
Across all the new medium processor core personal computers the widths range from 34mm to 7,100mm. At 7,050 millimeters, the HP 400 G3 is very wide compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the 400 G3.
3 Other reasons to consider the HP 400 G3
Average Processor Clock Speed
The HP 400 G3 has a relatively average processor clock speed (3.2 gigahertz) compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been available for the last year.
Alternative 3.2GHz processor clock speed desktop computers currently available which you might also want to look at include the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_2782875_price], or the DELL OptiPlex 3040[plb_3227672_price] which is cheaper.
If you would prefer a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the 400 G3 MT[pl_3810816_price] (3.3GHz), or the 400 G3[pl_3787108_price] (3.4GHz) both from HP.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the HP 400 G3 has a pretty typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other latest medium processor core personal computers.
Alternative 500GB total storage capacity desktop computers currently available that you might also want to consider include the Acer Veriton M2610[plb_3430067_price] which is cheaper.
If this medium processor core desktop computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the HP 400 G3 MT[plb_3810816_price] (1TB).
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were launched in the last 12 months. 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.
We compared this personal computer to all the other HDD PCs and we think the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_2782875_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If the storage speed of this desktop computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the OptiPlex 3040[pl_3242115_price] (SSD), or the OptiPlex 3040[pl_3357451_price] (SSD) both from DELL or the HP ProDesk 400 G3 SFF[plb_3187993_price] (SSD).
