10 Reasons For
Only Released Two Months Ago
This desktop computer has only been on the market for two months. Newer computers like this one are likely to use more advanced technology.
HP Has Good Personal Computer Reviews
HP has good average reviews for its medium processor core computers as well as across its entire PC range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on comparable spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
Price Drop of £50.98
In the last 30 days the 400 G3 has dropped in price by £50.98.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on medium processor core computers that have been around for the last year.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This desktop computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is the most frequently found internal memory type on recently released medium processor core computers.
+5 More reasons for
Supports One Case Placement
The HP 400 G3 has a greater number of placements than most recently released medium processor core computers. The most commonly supported case placement is Vertical, but this case placement is not supported by this computer. The case placements Horizontal are also supported by this personal computer.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on PCs that came out in the last year.
Comparable spec computers that have been available for around the same time as the 400 G3 have weights of between 38g and 23kg, and the average weight is 7kg. At only 4.4 kilograms, the HP 400 G3 is fairly light compared to most of the other desktop computers that were launched around the same time as the 400 G3.
The HP 400 G3 is fairly narrow (only 95 millimeters) compared to most of the other new medium processor core computers. Newly released medium processor core computers have widths of between 34mm and 7,100mm.
8 Reasons Against
Very Small Internal Memory
At only 4 gigabytes, the HP 400 G3 has a quite small internal memory compared to most of the other new PCs. The internal memory of comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to the 400 G3 range from 2GB to 32GB, and the average internal memory is 8.1GB.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 4GB memory personal computers currently available including the DELL Optiplex 3020 which is cheaper.
If this personal computer internal memory is too small for you then you might also want to consider the 600 G2 (£579.99) (8GB), or the 600 G2 (£348.47) (8GB) both from HP.
Very Small Hard Drive Capacity
At only 500 gigabytes, the HP 400 G3 has a quite small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the 400 G3. Newly released medium processor core computers have hard drive capacity of between 120GB and 3TB.
Alternative 500GB hard drive capacity computers currently available that you might want to look at include cheaper personal computers such as the HP 800 G2 (£604.97).
Only Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the HP 400 G3 is more than most desktop computers that have been around for a comparable time to it. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this HP PC. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this desktop computer.
Only One 3.5" Bay
The HP 400 G3 is a one 3.5" bay PC. Most of the other medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 400 G3 have between one and six 3.5" bays.
+5 More reasons against
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This personal computer supports a 10|100|1000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN data rate, which is the most frequently supported Ethernet LAN data rate on recently released similar spec personal computers.
Quite Small Processor Cache
Across all the similar spec desktop computers that have been around for the last year the processor caches range from 2MB to 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.8MB. At only 6 megabytes, the HP 400 G3 has a quite small processor cache compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that have been available for around the same time as the 400 G3.
Only Four Processor Threads
The HP 400 G3 is a four processor thread personal computer. Most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for the last year have between four and seven processor threads.
Only One 2.5" Bay
Most medium processor core computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the 400 G3 have between one and three 2.5" bays, including the HP 400 G3 which has one 2.5" bay.
3 Other reasons to consider the HP 400 G3
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.2 gigahertz, the HP 400 G3 has a fairly typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other new comparable spec PCs.
Other 3.2GHz processor clock speed computers currently available that you might also want to consider include the HP 800 G2 (£604.97) which is cheaper.
If you want a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the HP 400 G3 (£419.99) (3.4GHz).
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the HP 400 G3 has a pretty average total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for the last year.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 500GB total storage capacity PCs currently available including cheaper computers such as the HP 800 G2 (£604.97).
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on recently released PCs. 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 think you might also be interested in some of the other HDD personal computers currently available including the Acer Veriton M2610 (£324.97) which is cheaper.
If the storage speed of this desktop computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the 400 G3 (£419.99) (SSD), the 600 G2 (£348.47) (SSD), or the 400 G3 SFF (£369.99) (SSD) all from HP.
