HP is one of the better rated desktop computer manufacturers according to average user and expert reviews, and HP also has good reviews for its few processor core computers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many similar spec computers that have been available for around the same time as it.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
With an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of 350 megahertz, the ProDesk 400 G2 has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter base frequencies amongst desktop computers of this age. The slowest on-board graphics adapter base frequency of desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the ProDesk 400 G2 is 100MHz and the fastest is 690MHz.
4.3 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version
This personal computer supports a 4.3 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version on personal computers that have been around for a similar time to it.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
At 1,150 megahertz, the ProDesk 400 G2 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other personal computers that came out more than a year ago. Across all the few processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G2 the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 750MHz to 1,200MHz.
Quite Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
Computers of this age and type have max internal memory supported processors of between 4GB and 64GB. The HP ProDesk 400 G2 has one of the bigger max internal memory supported processors (32 gigabytes) amongst similar spec PCs of this age.
+9 More reasons for
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
The processor clock speeds of desktop computers that have been available for more than a year range from 0.8GHz to 3.9GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.8GHz. At 3.7 gigahertz, the ProDesk 400 G2 has a fairly fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other few processor core computers that are a similar age to the ProDesk 400 G2.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on personal computers that were launched more than a year ago.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many few processor core computers that have been available for more than a year.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many few processor core computers that are a comparable age to it.
Three PCI Express X1 Slots
Most of the other PCs of a comparable type and age to the ProDesk 400 G2 only have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots, however the HP ProDesk 400 G2 has three PCI Express x1 slots.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
Most computers of a similar type and age to the ProDesk 400 G2 have between one and seven USB 2.0 ports, including the ProDesk 400 G2 which has six USB 2.0 ports.
Four Processor Threads
The ProDesk 400 G2 is a four processor thread personal computer. Most of the other few processor core computers that were released more than a year ago only have between two and three processor threads.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on personal computers of this type and age.
3 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most desktop computers of a similar type and age to the ProDesk 400 G2 have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the ProDesk 400 G2 which has two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many few processor core computers that have been available 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.
Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity
The smallest hard drive capacity of few processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to the ProDesk 400 G2 is 320GB and the biggest is 2TB. The ProDesk 400 G2 has a fairly small hard drive capacity (only 500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G2.
Personal computers with a bigger hard drive capacity that might also be worth looking at include the HP ProDesk 400 MT (£438.26) (1TB).
3 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 400 G2
Released Over a Year Ago
This computer has been on the market for over a year.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 400 G2 has a pretty standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
If this desktop computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the Apple 2.8GHz (£800.74) (1TB), or the Asus M32AD (1TB).
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 G2 has a fairly average internal memory compared to most of the other few processor core computers that were released around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G2.
If this personal computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the HP Pavilion Mini 300 (8GB) which is also higher rated.
