HP medium processor core personal computers have good reviews on average and across all personal computers HP is one of the superior manufacturers.
Quite Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor
The slowest memory clock speed supported by processor of computers of a similar age and type to the 800 G2 is 800MHz, the fastest is 2,200MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor is 1,500MHz. The HP 800 G2 has a quite fast memory clock speed supported by processor (2,133 megahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the 800 G2.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on desktop computers that were launched more than a year ago.
4.4 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version
This computer supports a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
Six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The HP 800 G2 is a six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port desktop computer. Most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the 800 G2 have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
SSD Storage Medium
The HP 800 G2 has a faster storage speed than most PCs that have been available for more than a year. This PC has an SSD storage medium, whereas most computers of this spec and age 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 actually the best storage speed across all medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the 800 G2.
The worst storage speed across similar types of desktop computer is HDD.
+7 More reasons for
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 personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed
The average memory clock speed of computers that are a comparable age to the 800 G2 is 1,800MHz, and the memory clock speeds range from 1,000MHz to 2,400MHz. With a memory clock speed of 2,133 megahertz, the HP 800 G2 has a quite fast memory clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
The HP 800 G2 has a newer internal memory type than most comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for more than a year. This desktop computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, whereas most comparable spec desktop computers that were released around the same time as it have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type.
A DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type is actually the best internal memory type across all PCs that were released more than a year ago.
Across similar types of desktop computer the worst internal memory type is DDR3-SDRAM.
With a weight of only 1.3 kilograms, the HP 800 G2 is one of the lighter personal computers of this age and spec amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age. The weights of computers that are a similar age to the 800 G2 range from 38g to 100kg, and the average weight is 7.5kg.
At only 177 millimeters, the HP 800 G2 is quite shallow compared to most of the other personal computers of this spec and age. The average depth of computers of a comparable age and type to the 800 G2 is 350mm.
The HP 800 G2 is very short (only 34 millimeters) compared to most of the other PCs of this type and age. The heights of computers of a comparable age and type to the 800 G2 range from 9.8mm to 560mm.
4 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The HP 800 G2 has a quite small total storage capacity (only 256 gigabytes) compared to most of the other PCs that were launched more than a year ago. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the 800 G2 the total storage capacity range from 4GB to 3.6TB.
We compared this computer to all the other 256GB total storage capacity PCs and we think the HP 440 MT[plb_2949579_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
If you would prefer a desktop computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to consider the 800 G2[pl_3708213_price] (500GB), or the 600 G2[pl_3791109_price] (500GB) both from HP.
Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of only 2.5 gigahertz, the HP 800 G2 has one of the slower processor clock speeds amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The average processor clock speed of desktop computers of this type and age is 3.1GHz.
PCs with a faster processor clock speed that might be worth looking at include the HP 800 G2[plb_3799899_price] (2.8GHz) which is also higher rated.
Only IEEE 802.11a WiFi Standard
This computer supports an IEEE 802.11ac WiFi standard, which is the most frequently supported WiFi standard on desktop computers of a comparable type and age to it.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
At only 3.1 gigahertz, the HP 800 G2 has a fairly slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than a year. Across all the computers that have been available for around the same time as the 800 G2 the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz.

Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the HP 800 G2 has a fairly typical internal memory compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that are a comparable age to the 800 G2.
If you want a bigger internal memory then you might also want to consider the HP 800 G2[plb_3797297_price] (16GB).
