14 Reasons For
HP Has Good Reviews for Its Personal Computers
Based on 242 expert and user reviews, HP has good ratings for its personal computers. HP also has good ratings specifically within its medium processor core personal computers range compared to other manufacturers.
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 medium processor core personal computers that came out more than two years ago.
Six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most PCs that have been around for a similar time to the EliteDesk 800 G1 have between one and eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the EliteDesk 800 G1 which has six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on PCs of this spec and age.
SSD Storage Medium
The EliteDesk 800 G1 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to it. 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 medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the EliteDesk 800 G1.
Across comparable types of computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
We compared this computer to all the other SSD PCs and we think the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_2229911_price] which is cheaper; or the DELL Precision T1700 SFF[plb_2676603_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on PCs of a similar type and age to it.
+9 More reasons for
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many comparable spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a similar time to it.
Six USB 3.0 Ports
The EliteDesk 800 G1 is a six USB 3.0 port computer.
Eight Processor Threads
The EliteDesk 800 G1 has more processor threads than most of the personal computers of a similar type and age to the EliteDesk 800 G1. Most of the medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago only have between four and seven processor threads, however this desktop computer has eight processor threads.
Quite Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
Across all the comparable spec PCs that have been around for more than two years the solid-state drive capacities range from 8GB to 520GB. At 256 gigabytes, the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 has a fairly big solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago.
With a weight of only 1.3 kilograms, the EliteDesk 800 G1 is quite light compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the EliteDesk 800 G1. Across all the comparable spec desktop computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the EliteDesk 800 G1 the weights range from 250g to 24kg, and the average weight is 8.2kg.
The depths of personal computers of this spec and age range from 33mm to 690mm, and the average depth is 360mm. The EliteDesk 800 G1 is one of the shallower medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the EliteDesk 800 G1 (only 177 millimeters) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
With a height of only 34 millimeters, the EliteDesk 800 G1 is very short compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the EliteDesk 800 G1. The average height of personal computers of a comparable age and type to the EliteDesk 800 G1 is 280mm, and the heights range from 19mm to 560mm.
4 Reasons Against
Recent Price Increase of £107.12
The price of the EliteDesk 800 G1 has increased by £107.12 in the last 1 days.
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
Across all the similar spec desktop computers that were released more than two years ago the total storage capacity range from 32GB to 3TB. With a total storage capacity of only 256 gigabytes, the EliteDesk 800 G1 has one of the smaller total storage capacity amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
If this medium processor core desktop computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the HP ProDesk 600 SFF[plb_2689934_price] (500GB and cheaper), the DELL OptiPlex 9020[plb_2881924_price] (500GB and cheaper), or the Lenovo M73[plb_3186300_price] (500GB and cheaper).
Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed
The EliteDesk 800 G1 has one of the slower processor clock speeds (only 2 gigahertz) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. Desktop computers of this age and type have processor clock speeds of between 1GHz and 4.1GHz.
We compared this computer to all the other 2GHz processor clock speed personal computers and we think the HP ProDesk 600 G1[plb_2319082_price], and the DELL OptiPlex 3020[plb_2457301_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If you would prefer a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the HP ProDesk 600 SFF[plb_2689934_price] (3.2GHz and cheaper); or the DELL Precision T1700 SFF[plb_2676603_price] (3.5GHz and higher rated).
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
At only 3 gigahertz, the EliteDesk 800 G1 has a quite slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and spec. Computers that came out around the same time as the EliteDesk 800 G1 have maximum turbo frequencies of between 1.3GHz and 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz.

2 Other reasons to consider the HP EliteDesk 800 G1
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when this medium processor core desktop computer was released.
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 has a relatively average internal memory compared to most of the other PCs of this age and type.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 8GB memory computers currently available including the DELL OptiPlex 9020[plb_2408954_price] which is cheaper.
If you would prefer a bigger internal memory then you might also want to consider the Asus M32AD[plb_2702522_price] (16GB).
