9 Reasons For
Medium processor core personal computers produced by HP have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all desktop computers (not just medium processor core personal computers) and found that HP also has good ratings across its entire range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on comparable spec personal computers that came out in the last 12 months.
Only Released Seven Months Ago
The 800 G2 was only relased by HP seven months ago. Newer personal computers like this one are likely to have better features.
SSD Storage Medium
The HP 800 G2 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most recently released medium processor core personal computers. Most latest medium processor core personal computers 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 amongst all latest comparable spec personal computers.
Amongst similar types of personal computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other SSD desktop computers currently available including cheaper desktop computers such as the DELL OptiPlex 3040[plb_3242115_price].
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been available for the last year.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This desktop computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is typical of many similar spec desktop computers that were released around the same time as it.
+4 More reasons for
The weights of medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the 800 G2 range from 38g to 16kg, and the average weight is 6.4kg. With a weight of only 1.3 kilograms, the HP 800 G2 is one of the lighter comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to the 800 G2 amongst desktop computers of this age.
Recently released similar spec PCs have depths of between 33mm and 600mm. The HP 800 G2 is fairly shallow (only 177 millimeters) compared to most of the other recently released comparable spec personal computers.
Across all the recently released similar spec personal computers the heights range from 10mm to 560mm. With a height of only 34 millimeters, the HP 800 G2 is very short compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that are a similar age to the 800 G2.
5 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of only 128 gigabytes, the HP 800 G2 has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the 800 G2. Across all the newly released medium processor core personal computers the total storage capacity range from 32GB to 3.3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 730GB.
Alternative 128GB total storage capacity desktop computers currently available that you might want to look at include the OptiPlex 3040[pl_3357451_price], or the OptiPlex 3040[pl_3242115_price] both from DELL which is cheaper.
If this personal computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the HP 400 G3 SFF[plb_3820588_price] (256GB) which is also cheaper.
Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed
The slowest processor clock speed of recently released medium processor core personal computers is 1.3GHz, the fastest is 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz. The HP 800 G2 has one of the slower processor clock speeds (only 2.5 gigahertz) amongst computers of this age.
Other 2.5GHz processor clock speed desktop computers currently available that you might want to consider include the DELL OptiPlex 3040[plb_3357451_price] which is cheaper.
If you want a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the 600 G2[pl_3804832_price] (3.2GHz), or the 600 G2[pl_3816863_price] (3.2GHz) both from HP which is also cheaper.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 800 G2 the maximum on-board graphics adapter memories range from 1GB to 64GB. At only 1.7 gigabytes, the HP 800 G2 has a fairly small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the 800 G2.
Only IEEE 802.11a WiFi Standard
This PC supports an IEEE 802.11ac WiFi standard, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been available for the last year.
+2 More reasons against
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
The maximum turbo frequencies of medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 800 G2 range from 1.8GHz to 4.2GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz. At only 3.1 gigahertz, the HP 800 G2 has a quite slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the 800 G2.
1 Other reason to consider the HP 800 G2
Average Internal Memory
The HP 800 G2 has a relatively typical internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the 800 G2.
There are a number of alternative 8GB memory personal computers currently available that you might want to consider including the DELL T3420[plb_3242155_price] which is cheaper.
