8 Reasons For
HP Has Good Desktop Computer Reviews
Medium processor core personal computers built by HP have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all computers (not just medium processor core personal computers) and found that HP also has good ratings across its entire range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many personal computers of this spec and age.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on personal computers of this age and spec.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on medium processor core personal computers that came out 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 the most commonly found cabling technology on computers of this age and type.
The ProDesk 400 G1 Mini is quite light (only 1.3 kilograms) compared to most of the other computers of a similar spec and age to the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini. The weights of desktop computers that came out around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini range from 38g to 100kg.
+3 More reasons for
Medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than a year have depths of between 31mm and 590mm, and the average depth is 350mm. The ProDesk 400 G1 Mini is one of the shallower comparable spec desktop computers that were released one year ago (only 177 millimeters) amongst desktop computers of this age.
With a height of only 34 millimeters, the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini is one of the shorter comparable spec desktop computers that were released more than a year ago amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. Medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago have heights of between 9.8mm and 560mm, and the average height is 300mm.
8 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most comparable spec PCs that have been available for a similar time to the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini which has two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed
At only 2 gigahertz, the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini. Medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini have processor clock speeds of between 1.3GHz and 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz.
We compared this computer to all the other 2GHz processor clock speed desktop computers and we think the DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro[plb_2472630_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.
Desktop computers with a faster processor clock speed that might be worth looking at include the 800 G2[pl_3708213_price] (2.5GHz), or the 600 G2[pl_3791109_price] (2.5GHz) both from HP which is also cheaper.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as 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.
Other HDD personal computers currently available that you might want to look at include cheaper personal computers such as the Lenovo M91p[plb_2915922_price].
If you are looking for a desktop computer with a faster storage speed then you might also want to consider the DELL OptiPlex 7020 MT[plb_2788976_price] (SSD) which is also cheaper.
Very Small Internal Memory
With an internal memory of only 4 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini has one of the smaller internal memory amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The average internal memory of personal computers that are a comparable age to the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini is 8.3GB.
Other 4GB memory desktop computers currently available which you might also want to look at include the DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro[plb_2472630_price] which is cheaper.
If this computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the DELL OptiPlex 7020 MT[plb_2788976_price] (8GB and cheaper), or the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_3099420_price] (8GB and cheaper).
+5 More reasons against
Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity
Desktop computers of this spec and age have hard drive capacity of between 1GB and 3TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 930GB. The ProDesk 400 G1 Mini has a quite small hard drive capacity (only 500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that were released one year ago.
Personal computers with a bigger hard drive capacity that might be worth looking at include the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_2877470_price] (1TB and cheaper), or the DELL OptiPlex 7010[plb_2903853_price] (1TB and cheaper).
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
Most computers that have been around for more than a year have between one and seven USB 3.0 ports, including the HP ProDesk 400 G1 Mini which has two USB 3.0 ports.
Only One DisplayPort
The HP ProDesk 400 G1 Mini is a one DisplayPort PC.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
The average maximum turbo frequency of personal computers of a comparable type and age to the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini is 3.6GHz, and the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz. The ProDesk 400 G1 Mini has one of the slower maximum turbo frequencies (only 3 gigahertz) amongst personal computers of this age.
2 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 400 G1 Mini
Released Over a Year Ago
HP released the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini over a year ago.
Average Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 400 G1 Mini has a relatively average total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini.
If you are looking for a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to consider the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_2877470_price] (1TB and cheaper), or the DELL OptiPlex 7010[plb_2903853_price] (1TB and cheaper).
