10 Reasons For
Only Released Two Months Ago
The Elite Slice was only relased by HP two months ago. Newer computers like this one are likely to have more advanced features.
HP Computers Have Good Reviews
HP has good average ratings for its medium processor core computers as well as across its entire desktop computer range compared to other manufacturers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many similar spec computers that were launched around the same time as it.
SSD Storage Medium
The Elite Slice has a faster storage speed than most medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as it. This computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most latest medium processor core 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.
This personal computer's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed amongst all medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as the Elite Slice.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed across comparable types of personal computer.
We compared this desktop computer to all the other SSD personal computers and we think cheaper computers such as the 400 G2 (£504.96), and the 800 G2 SFF both from HP is also worth considering.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to it.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This PC has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on comparable spec computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
+5 More reasons for
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This PC has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as it.
With a height of only 165 millimeters, the Elite Slice is one of the shorter personal computers that were released in the last year amongst medium processor core computers of this age. The shortest comparable spec desktop computer that has been around for a similar time to the Elite Slice is 10mm high and the tallest is 530mm.
The average weight of medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the Elite Slice is 7kg, and the weights range from 38g to 23kg. At only 1.1 kilograms, the Elite Slice is very light compared to most of the other personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Elite Slice.
Medium processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the Elite Slice have depths of between 34mm and 600mm, and the average depth is 340mm. When compared to other new computers that we have checked the depth of, the Elite Slice's depth of only 35 millimeters is one of the shallowest.
5 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The Elite Slice has one of the smaller total storage capacity (only 256 gigabytes) amongst similar spec PCs of this age. The total storage capacity of PCs that have been available for the last year range from 32GB to 3.5TB, and the average total storage capacity is 810GB.
Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of only 2.5 gigahertz, the HP Elite Slice has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other recently released similar spec PCs. New medium processor core computers have processor clock speeds of between 1.3GHz and 4GHz.
Alternative 2.5GHz processor clock speed desktop computers currently available that you might also want to look at include the 400 G2 (£504.96), or the 600 G2 both from HP or the DELL 7040 (£829.75) which is cheaper.
If this medium processor core computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the HP 400 G3 (£788.40) (3.4GHz and cheaper).
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This PC supports a 10|100|1000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN data rate, which is the most frequently supported Ethernet LAN data rate on personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
After checking the price of 204 comparable spec desktop computers that came out in the last year they range in price from £115 to £2,784. We think that this personal computer looks expensive compared to other comparable spec desktop computers that came out in the last year.
+2 More reasons against
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
The slowest maximum turbo frequency of medium processor core computers that have been around for a similar time to the Elite Slice is 1.8GHz, the fastest is 4.2GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz. The Elite Slice has one of the slower maximum turbo frequencies (only 3.1 gigahertz) amongst PCs of this age.
1 Other reason to consider the HP Elite Slice
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the Elite Slice has a pretty average internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for the last year.
We compared this PC to all the other 8GB memory PCs and we think cheaper PCs such as the 400 G3 MT (£706.21), the Z230 MT (£825.86), and the 600 G2 SFF (£766.80) all from HP is also worth considering.
