7 Reasons For
HP Has Good Reviews for Its Desktop Computers
We calculated the average reviews for all HP PCs and also specifically for HP medium processor core computers and found that in both cases HP had good reviews compared to other brands.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many PCs that were launched around the same time as it.
Personal computers of this age and spec have depths of between 31mm and 760mm. With a depth of only 177 millimeters, the ProDesk 400 G1 is one of the shallower desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1 amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age.
The lightest computer of this age and type is 38g heavy and the heaviest is 23kg. With a weight of only 1.3 kilograms, the HP ProDesk 400 G1 is fairly light compared to most of the other computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
+2 More reasons for
When compared to other comparable spec personal computers that are a similar age to the ProDesk 400 G1 that we have assessed, the ProDesk 400 G1's height of only 34 millimeters is one of the shortest. The heights of desktop computers of this type and age range from 9.8mm to 560mm, and the average height is 290mm.
13 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The ProDesk 400 G1 is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port computer. Most of the other medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the ProDesk 400 G1 have between one and eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
The average processor clock speed of medium processor core computers that were launched more than a year ago is 3.1GHz. At only 2 gigahertz, the HP ProDesk 400 G1 has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that have been available for a comparable time to the ProDesk 400 G1.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 2GHz processor clock speed desktop computers currently available including the OptiPlex 3020 Micro (£519.99), or the OptiPlex 9020 Micro both from DELL which is cheaper.
If you want a computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the EliteDesk 800 G1 (£398.25) (2.2GHz and cheaper), the 800 G2 (2.5GHz and cheaper), or the 800 G2 (2.5GHz and cheaper) all from HP.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on 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.
Computers with a faster storage speed that might be worth considering include the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (£398.25) (SSD), or the Fujitsu D556 (£459.78) (SSD) which is also cheaper.
Very Small Internal Memory
The internal memory of personal computers of this type and age range from 2GB to 64GB. The ProDesk 400 G1 has one of the smaller internal memory (only 4 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 4GB memory PCs currently available including cheaper desktop computers such as the 800 G1 (£522.00), or the Z230 (£935.04) both from HP.
With a hard drive capacity of only 500 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 400 G1 has a quite small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the ProDesk 400 G1. The smallest hard drive capacity of PCs of this spec and age is 1GB and the biggest is 3TB.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 500GB hard drive capacity PCs currently available including the DELL OptiPlex 9020 Micro which is cheaper.
If this medium processor core computer hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the DELL Inspiron 3847 (£460.00) (1TB and cheaper), or the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 (£469.98) (1TB and cheaper).
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on computers of this age and type.
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
Most personal computers of a similar type and age to the ProDesk 400 G1 have between one and eight USB 3.0 ports, including the HP ProDesk 400 G1 which has two USB 3.0 ports.
Quite Small Hybrid Hard Drive (H-HDD) Capacity
Personal computers of this type and age have hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) capacities of between 8GB and 2TB, and the average hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) capacity is 930GB. The HP ProDesk 400 G1 has one of the smaller hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) capacities (only 500 gigabytes) amongst personal computers of this age.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the ProDesk 400 G1 is 2.8GB. At only 1.024 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 G1 has a fairly small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and spec.
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
Medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1 have maximum internal memory of between 2GB and 520GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 33GB. With a maximum internal memory of only 16 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 G1 has a fairly small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other PCs that have been around for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1.
Quite Small Processor Cache
Across all the computers that are a similar age to the ProDesk 400 G1 the processor caches range from 2MB to 10MB. With a processor cache of only 6 megabytes, the ProDesk 400 G1 has one of the smaller processor caches amongst computers of this age.
Only Four Processor Threads
The ProDesk 400 G1 is a four processor thread PC. Most of the other medium processor core computers that were launched more than a year ago have between four and seven processor threads.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
The ProDesk 400 G1 has one of the slower maximum turbo frequencies (only 3 gigahertz) amongst computers of this age. The average maximum turbo frequency of medium processor core computers that have been on the market for more than a year is 3.6GHz, and the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz.
3 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 400 G1
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when this personal computer was released.
Recent Price Increase of £6.38
In the last 56 days the price of the ProDesk 400 G1 has increased by £6.38.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 G1 has a pretty typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other PCs of this age and type.
We compared all the other 500GB total storage capacity PCs to this computer and we think the Lenovo ThinkCentre M73 Tiny which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If this personal computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 (£469.98) (1TB) which is also cheaper.
