HP is one of the superior computer brands according to average user and expert reviews, and HP also has good ratings for its medium processor core computers.
Just Released Five Months Ago
HP only released the 800 G2 five months ago. Newer PCs like this one are likely to have more advanced features.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many new medium processor core computers.
Supports One Case Placement
The number of placements supported by the HP 800 G2 is more than most PCs that were released in the last year. The most frequently 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.
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 computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
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 medium processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
+4 More reasons for
The HP 800 G2 is fairly shallow (only 177 millimeters) compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for the last year. Latest comparable spec computers have depths of between 34mm and 600mm, and the average depth is 340mm.
The weights of new desktop computers range from 38g to 23kg. With a weight of only 1.3 kilograms, the HP 800 G2 is fairly light compared to most of the other newly released medium processor core computers.
The heights of latest computers range from 10mm to 530mm, and the average height is 300mm. When compared to other new medium processor core computers, the height of the HP 800 G2 of only 34 millimeters is one of the shortest.
4 Reasons Against
Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed
At only 2.5 gigahertz, the HP 800 G2 has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other new similar spec PCs. Across all the similar spec desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the 800 G2 the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz.
If you are looking for a PC with a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the Elite Slice (2.8GHz), the 600 G2 SFF (£529.97) (3.2GHz), or the 600 G2 MT (£648.65) (3.2GHz) all from HP.
Very Small Hard Drive Capacity
At only 500 gigabytes, the HP 800 G2 has a fairly small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other latest comparable spec PCs. The smallest hard drive capacity of medium processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to the 800 G2 is 120GB, the biggest is 3TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 940GB.
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
At only 500 gigabytes, the HP 800 G2 has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other new medium processor core computers. The smallest total storage capacity of newly released medium processor core computers is 32GB, the biggest is 3.5TB, and the average total storage capacity is 810GB.
If you would prefer a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the HP Elite Slice (512GB).
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
With a maximum turbo frequency of only 3.1 gigahertz, the HP 800 G2 has one of the slower maximum turbo frequencies amongst medium processor core computers of this age. The slowest maximum turbo frequency of recently released medium processor core computers is 1.8GHz, the fastest is 4.2GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz.
+1 More reason against
1 Other reason to consider the HP 800 G2
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on new medium processor core computers. 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.
If the storage speed of this medium processor core computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the 800 G2 SFF (SSD), or the 600 G2 Mini (£1,282.66) (SSD) both from HP.
