We calculated the average reviews for all HP desktop computers and also specifically for HP medium processor core personal computers and found that in both cases HP had good reviews.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on desktop computers of a comparable age and type to it.
SSD Storage Medium
The HP ProDesk 400 G1 Mini has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most personal computers of this spec and age. Most personal computers of this age and spec have an HDD storage medium. 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 personal computer's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed amongst all computers that came out around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed amongst similar types of personal computer.
Quite Big Internal Memory
Personal computers that are a comparable age to the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini have internal memory of between 2GB and 64GB, and the average internal memory is 8.3GB. With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini has a fairly big internal memory compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini.
If this HP PC internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Acer Aspire XC-705 (£449.00) (10GB), or the HP 810-477na (£939.99) (12GB).
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 medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many personal computers of a similar spec and age to it.

10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to it.
Quite Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
At 256 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 400 G1 Mini has a quite big solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other personal computers of this type and age. The average solid-state drive capacity of medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago is 200GB.
Across all the medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago the weights range from 38g to 100kg, and the average weight is 7.5kg. At only 1.3 kilograms, the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini is quite light compared to most of the other desktop computers that were released one year ago.
At only 177 millimeters, the HP ProDesk 400 G1 Mini is quite shallow compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago. Across all the similar spec desktop computers that came out around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini the depths range from 31mm to 590mm, and the average depth is 350mm.
PCs of a comparable age and type to the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini have heights of between 9.8mm and 560mm. The height of the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini of only 34 millimeters is one of the shortest amongst medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini.
7 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The HP ProDesk 400 G1 Mini is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port desktop computer.
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The total storage capacity of desktop computers that have been available for a comparable time to the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini range from 4GB to 3.6TB. The HP ProDesk 400 G1 Mini has a fairly small total storage capacity (only 256 gigabytes) compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini.
If this medium processor core desktop computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the ProDesk 600 G2 MT (£618.95) (500GB), or the ProDesk 600 G2 SFF (£529.97) (500GB) both from HP.
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
The slowest processor clock speed of medium processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago is 1.3GHz and the fastest is 4GHz. The ProDesk 400 G1 Mini has one of the slower processor clock speeds (only 2 gigahertz) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
If this personal computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to look at the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (£357.98) (2.2GHz and higher rated).
Only One DisplayPort
The ProDesk 400 G1 Mini is a one DisplayPort desktop computer.
+4 More reasons against
Quite Small Processor Cache
With a processor cache of only 6 megabytes, the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini has a fairly small processor cache compared to most of the other PCs of this type and age. Across all the computers of a comparable age and type to the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini the processor caches range from 2MB to 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.6MB.
Only Four Processor Threads
The HP ProDesk 400 G1 Mini is a four processor thread PC.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz. At only 3 gigahertz, the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini has a quite slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other computers that have been available for a similar time to the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini.
