We checked 242 owner and expert reviews for HP desktop computers and found that on average HP has good ratings compared to other brands. We also found that HP has good ratings specifically within its medium processor core personal computers range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many personal computers that have been on the market for the last year.
Just Released Seven Months Ago
The 800 G2 was only relased by HP seven months ago.
SSD Storage Medium
The HP 800 G2 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as it. Most comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for a similar 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.
This PC's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed across all recently released medium processor core personal computers.
Across comparable types of PC the worst storage speed is HDD.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on similar spec computers that were released around the same time as it.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This desktop computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been available for the last year.
+4 More reasons for
The lightest recently released desktop computer is 38g heavy and the heaviest is 16kg. At only 1.3 kilograms, the HP 800 G2 is quite light compared to most of the other latest medium processor core personal computers.
At only 177 millimeters, the HP 800 G2 is quite shallow compared to most of the other personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the 800 G2. The shallowest medium processor core desktop computer that is a similar age to the 800 G2 is 33mm deep and the deepest is 600mm.
When compared to other recently released personal computers, the HP 800 G2's height of only 34 millimeters is one of the shortest. The heights of new medium processor core personal computers range from 10mm to 560mm, and the average height is 280mm.
8 Reasons Against
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
The average total storage capacity of desktop computers that came out around the same time as the 800 G2 is 730GB, and the total storage capacity range from 32GB to 3.3TB. The HP 800 G2 has one of the smaller total storage capacity (only 128 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
If you want a desktop computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to consider the Elite Slice[pl_3819072_price] (256GB), or the 400 G3[pl_3857456_price] (256GB) both from HP.
Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed
Across all the personal computers that have been around for the last year the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz. With a processor clock speed of only 2.5 gigahertz, the HP 800 G2 has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other newly released medium processor core personal computers.
If this computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to look at the HP 400 G3 SFF[plb_3864883_price] (3.2GHz).
Very Small Internal Memory
The HP 800 G2 has one of the smaller internal memory (only 4 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The smallest internal memory of medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 800 G2 is 2GB, the biggest is 32GB, and the average internal memory is 7.9GB.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 4GB memory computers currently available including the DELL OptiPlex 3040[plb_3796399_price] which has better reviews.
If this computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the Elite Slice[pl_3819072_price] (8GB), or the 400 G3[pl_3857456_price] (8GB) both from HP.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
New medium processor core personal computers have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 64GB. With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of only 1.7 gigabytes, the HP 800 G2 has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
+5 More reasons against
Only IEEE 802.11a WiFi Standard
This personal computer supports an IEEE 802.11ac WiFi standard, which is the most commonly supported WiFi standard on computers that were launched in the last year.
Quite Small Processor Cache
At only 6 megabytes, the HP 800 G2 has a quite small processor cache compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the 800 G2. Similar spec PCs that are a comparable age to the 800 G2 have processor caches of between 2MB and 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.7MB.
Only Four Processor Threads
The HP 800 G2 is a four processor thread desktop computer. Most of the other comparable spec PCs that have been available for around the same time as the 800 G2 have between four and seven processor threads.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
The average maximum turbo frequency of PCs that are a comparable age to the 800 G2 is 3.6GHz, and the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.2GHz. At only 3.1 gigahertz, the HP 800 G2 has a quite slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other latest medium processor core personal computers.
