Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
At 1,200 megahertz, the HP ProDesk 400 G1 has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other computers of a similar type and age to the ProDesk 400 G1. Across all the similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to the ProDesk 400 G1 the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 640MHz to 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.6 gigahertz, the HP ProDesk 400 G1 has a fairly fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other personal computers that were released more than a year ago. Medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1 have processor clock speeds of between 1.3GHz and 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz.
There are a number of alternative 3.6GHz processor clock speed personal computers currently available which you might also want to look at including cheaper desktop computers such as the DELL OptiPlex 9020[plb_2395416_price].
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 desktop computers of this age and spec.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on PCs that are a similar age to it.
+8 More reasons for
Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
The ProDesk 400 G1 has one of the faster maximum turbo frequencies (4 gigahertz) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The maximum turbo frequencies of computers that were launched around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1 range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz.
Three PCI Express X1 Slots
Most of the other personal computers that have been around for more than a year only have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots, however the HP ProDesk 400 G1 has three PCI Express x1 slots.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The ProDesk 400 G1 is a six USB 2.0 port PC.
Eight Processor Threads
Most of the other desktop computers of this age and type only have between four and seven processor threads, however the ProDesk 400 G1 has eight processor threads.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
The smallest processor cache of comparable spec computers that were launched more than a year ago is 2MB and the biggest is 10MB. With a processor cache of 8 megabytes, the HP ProDesk 400 G1 has one of the bigger processor caches amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
Across all the medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1 the heights range from 9.8mm to 560mm. At only 100 millimeters, the ProDesk 400 G1 is quite short compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the ProDesk 400 G1.
8 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The HP ProDesk 400 G1 is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port personal computer.
Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
The average max internal memory supported processor of PCs of a comparable type and age to the ProDesk 400 G1 is 65GB. The ProDesk 400 G1 has one of the smaller max internal memory supported processors (only 32 gigabytes) amongst similar spec personal computers of this age.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago. 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.
Alternative HDD personal computers currently available that you might want to consider include the Alienware X51[plb_2373451_price], or the DELL 5040[plb_3072564_price] which is cheaper.
If the storage speed of this personal computer is too slow for you then you might want to look at the OptiPlex 7020 MT[pl_2788976_price] (SSD and cheaper), or the OptiPlex 3020 SFF[pl_2867167_price] (SSD and cheaper) both from DELL or the Zoostorm Intel Core i5 Delta[plb_2756335_price] (SSD and cheaper).
Very Small Internal Memory
The average internal memory of medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1 is 8.3GB, and the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB. With an internal memory of only 4 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 G1 has one of the smaller internal memory amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
If this desktop computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the DELL 5040[plb_3072564_price] (8GB) which is also cheaper.
+5 More reasons against
Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity
Across all the desktop computers of this spec and age the hard drive capacity range from 1GB to 3TB. At only 500 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 G1 has a quite small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other PCs of this type and age.
We compared all the other 500GB hard drive capacity PCs to this computer and we think the OptiPlex 7020[pl_2837690_price], and the OptiPlex 9020[pl_2881921_price] both from DELL which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If this HP PC hard drive capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73[plb_3158291_price] (1TB) which also has a higher rating.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
PCs of a similar spec and age to the ProDesk 400 G1 have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 4.3GB. With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of only 1.024 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 G1 has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The ProDesk 400 G1 has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as it. The most frequently found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this desktop computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this computer.
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
The ProDesk 400 G1 is a two USB 3.0 port PC. Most of the other personal computers of a comparable age and type to the ProDesk 400 G1 have between one and seven USB 3.0 ports.

Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when HP released the ProDesk 400 G1.
Average Total Storage Capacity
The ProDesk 400 G1 has a fairly typical total storage capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the ProDesk 400 G1.
There are a number of other 500GB total storage capacity desktop computers currently available which you might want to consider including the OptiPlex 7020[pl_2837690_price], or the OptiPlex 9020[pl_2663205_price] both from DELL which is cheaper.
If this personal computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73[plb_3158291_price] (1TB) which also has a higher rating.
