Based on 242 user and expert reviews, HP has good ratings for its computers. HP also has good ratings specifically for its medium processor core personal computers compared to other brands.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many desktop computers of a similar type and age to it.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This personal computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on desktop computers of this age and type.
SSD Storage Medium
The HP EliteDesk 800 G1 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to it. Most PCs that were launched around the same time as it 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 computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed across all personal computers of this type and age.
The worst storage speed across comparable types of computer is HDD.
We compared this PC to all the other SSD PCs and we think cheaper personal computers such as the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 Mini is also worth considering.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many personal computers of a similar type and age to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to it.
+6 More reasons for
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on personal computers of this age and spec.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago.
The depths of medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the EliteDesk 800 G1 range from 33mm to 690mm. At only 254 millimeters, the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 is quite shallow compared to most of the other PCs that were released around the same time as the EliteDesk 800 G1.
Similar spec personal computers that were launched more than two years ago have weights of between 250g and 24kg. At only 3.1 kilograms, the EliteDesk 800 G1 is fairly light compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago.
The heights of medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the EliteDesk 800 G1 range from 19mm to 560mm. The HP EliteDesk 800 G1 is one of the shorter computers of a similar spec and age to the EliteDesk 800 G1 (only 66 millimeters) amongst personal computers of this age.
3 Reasons Against
Recent Price Increase of £18.26
In the last 59 days the price of the EliteDesk 800 G1 has increased by £18.26.
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
The EliteDesk 800 G1 has one of the smaller total storage capacity (only 128 gigabytes) amongst similar spec desktop computers of this age. Across all the PCs of a similar type and age to the EliteDesk 800 G1 the total storage capacity range from 32GB to 3TB.
The EliteDesk 800 G1 has a quite slow processor clock speed (only 2.9 gigahertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that came out around the same time as the EliteDesk 800 G1. The slowest processor clock speed of medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the EliteDesk 800 G1 is 1GHz, the fastest is 4.1GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz.
Computers with a faster processor clock speed that might be worth looking at include the P420 E85+ (3GHz and cheaper), or the Esprimo P420 (3.1GHz and cheaper) both from Fujitsu.
2 Other reasons to consider the HP EliteDesk 800 G1
Released Over Two Years Ago
This medium processor core desktop computer was released over two years ago.
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 4 gigabytes, the EliteDesk 800 G1 has a relatively average internal memory compared to most of the other desktop computers that are a comparable age to the EliteDesk 800 G1.
If this medium processor core desktop computer internal memory is too small for you then you might want to look at the Z230 (8GB), or the Z230 (8GB) both from HP or the DELL OptiPlex 9020 (8GB).
