On average HP medium processor core computers have good ratings as do all desktop computers produced by HP.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many computers of this age and type.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
Across all the similar spec computers that have been around for a comparable time to the ProDesk 400 G1 the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz. At 3.6 gigahertz, the HP ProDesk 400 G1 has a fairly fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that were launched around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1.
Three PCI Express X1 Slots
Most of the other medium processor core 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.
Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
With a maximum turbo frequency of 4 gigahertz, the ProDesk 400 G1 has a quite fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1. The average maximum turbo frequency of computers that have been around for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1 is 3.6GHz, and the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on computers that are a similar age to it.
+4 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many computers that are a comparable age to it.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many PCs of a similar age and spec to it.
The shortest comparable spec computer that has been on the market for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1 is 9.8mm high and the tallest is 560mm. With a height of only 100 millimeters, the ProDesk 400 G1 is one of the shorter comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1 amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
9 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on desktop computers of a similar age and type 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.
If the storage speed of this medium processor core computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the Fujitsu D556 (£459.78) (SSD), or the HP 800 G2 (£877.87) (SSD) which is also cheaper.
Very Small Internal Memory
Across all the personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the ProDesk 400 G1 the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB, and the average internal memory is 7.8GB. The ProDesk 400 G1 has one of the smaller internal memory (only 4 gigabytes) amongst computers of this age.
Alternative 4GB memory desktop computers currently available that you might also want to look at include the Z230 (£935.04), or the 800 G1 (£522.00) both from HP or the DELL OptiPlex 9020 Micro which is cheaper.
If this personal computer internal memory is too small for you then you might want to look at the Acer Aspire T3-710 (£461.98) (8GB), or the HP 800 G2 (8GB) which is also cheaper.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This desktop computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as it.
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
Across all the medium processor core computers that were released more than a year ago the total storage capacity range from 4GB to 3.6TB, and the average total storage capacity is 770GB. The ProDesk 400 G1 has a quite small total storage capacity (only 500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1.
The number of memory slots found on the ProDesk 400 G1 is more than most medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to it. The most frequently found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this personal computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this computer.
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
The HP ProDesk 400 G1 is a two USB 3.0 port computer. Most of the other desktop computers that came out more than a year ago have between one and eight USB 3.0 ports.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The smallest maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the ProDesk 400 G1 is 1GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 2.8GB. With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of only 1.024 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 400 G1 has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
At only 16 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 G1 has a quite small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable spec and age to the ProDesk 400 G1. The average maximum internal memory of medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1 is 33GB, and the maximum internal memory range from 2GB to 520GB.
Only One PCI Express X16 Slot
The ProDesk 400 G1 is a one PCI Express x16 slot PC.
2 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 400 G1
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when HP released the ProDesk 400 G1.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 G1 has a relatively standard hard drive capacity compared to most of the other personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the ProDesk 400 G1.
There are a number of alternative 500GB hard drive capacity desktop computers currently available which you might also want to consider including the HP 800 G1 (£522.00), or the Lenovo ThinkCentre M73 Tiny which is cheaper.
If this desktop computer hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 (1TB and cheaper).
