11 Reasons For
HP PCs Have Good Reviews
HP medium processor core personal computers have good ratings on average and across all PCs HP is one of the superior brands.
Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor
With a memory clock speed supported by processor of 2,133 megahertz, the HP 800 G2 has a quite fast memory clock speed supported by processor compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year. The slowest memory clock speed supported by processor of similar spec personal computers that were released one year ago is 800MHz, the fastest is 2,200MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor is 1,500MHz.
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 computers of this spec and age.
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 similar spec computers that are a comparable age to it.
Six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 800 G2 have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the HP 800 G2 which has six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many computers of a comparable age and spec to it.
+6 More reasons for
Quite Fast Memory Clock Speed
Comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for more than a year have memory clock speeds of between 1,000MHz and 2,400MHz, and the average memory clock speed is 1,800MHz. With a memory clock speed of 2,133 megahertz, the HP 800 G2 has one of the faster memory clock speeds amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
The HP 800 G2 has a newer internal memory type than most comparable spec PCs that were launched more than a year ago. This computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, whereas most comparable spec computers that are a similar age to it have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type.
This desktop computer's internal memory type (DDR4-SDRAM) is actually the best internal memory type amongst all comparable spec desktop computers that have been available for more than a year.
A DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type is the worst internal memory type amongst similar types of desktop computer.
The HP 800 G2 is fairly short (only 177 millimeters) compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable age and type to the 800 G2. Across all the computers of a comparable age and type to the 800 G2 the heights range from 9.8mm to 560mm.
The weights of desktop computers of this age and spec range from 38g to 100kg. With a weight of only 1.3 kilograms, the HP 800 G2 is one of the lighter comparable spec desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 800 G2 amongst similar spec personal computers of this age.
The shallowest comparable spec computer that came out more than a year ago is 31mm deep, the deepest is 590mm, and the average depth is 350mm. When compared to other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year, the depth of the HP 800 G2 of only 34 millimeters is one of the shallowest.
6 Reasons Against
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 1,100 megahertz, the HP 800 G2 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other PCs of this age and type. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the 800 G2 the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 640MHz to 1,300MHz.
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 personal computers that were launched more than a year ago. Across all the similar spec computers that are a comparable age to the 800 G2 the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz.
If this PC processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to look at the HP 800 G2 SFF[plb_3768356_price] (3.2GHz) which is also cheaper.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many desktop computers of a similar age and spec to it. 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.
It may also be worth considering one of the other HDD computers currently available including cheaper desktop computers such as the DELL OptiPlex 3020[plb_2457302_price], or the HP 800 G2 SFF[plb_3768356_price].
If the storage speed of this medium processor core desktop computer is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the OptiPlex 9020 SFF[pl_2414879_price] (SSD and cheaper), or the OptiPlex 9020[pl_2985619_price] (SSD and cheaper) both from DELL.
Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity
Across all the computers of a similar type and age to the 800 G2 the hard drive capacity range from 1GB to 3TB. The HP 800 G2 has one of the smaller hard drive capacity (only 500 gigabytes) amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age.
We compared all the other 500GB hard drive capacity personal computers to this personal computer and we think cheaper personal computers such as the DELL OptiPlex 3020[plb_2457302_price], the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 SFF[plb_2854414_price], and the Fujitsu P420 E85+[plb_3331993_price] is also worth considering.
If this desktop computer hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might also want to consider the HP 800 G2 SFF[plb_3768356_price] (1TB) which is also cheaper.
+3 More reasons against
Only IEEE 802.11a WiFi Standard
This PC supports an IEEE 802.11ac WiFi standard, which is the most commonly supported WiFi standard on medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago.
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 computers of this age. Medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the 800 G2 have maximum turbo frequencies of between 1.8GHz and 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz.
3 Other reasons to consider the HP 800 G2
Released Over a Year Ago
This desktop computer was released over a year ago.
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the HP 800 G2 has a relatively standard internal memory compared to most of the other computers that are a comparable age to the 800 G2.
There are a number of alternative 8GB memory computers currently available which you might want to look at including cheaper personal computers such as the DELL OptiPlex 9020 SFF[plb_2414879_price], or the Fujitsu D556[plb_3186790_price].
Average Total Storage Capacity
The HP 800 G2 has a fairly typical total storage capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other computers of this type and age.
We compared this desktop computer to all the other 500GB total storage capacity PCs and we think cheaper computers such as the DELL OptiPlex 9020[plb_2793217_price], and the Fujitsu D556[plb_3119835_price] is also worth considering.
If this personal computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the HP 800 G2 SFF[plb_3768356_price] (1TB and cheaper).
