+3 More reasons for
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago.
The ProDesk 400 G2 is one of the shorter personal computers of this type and age (only 100 millimeters) amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age. The shortest comparable spec PC that has been available for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G2 is 9.8mm high and the tallest is 560mm.
4 Reasons Against
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been available for more than a year the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz. With a processor clock speed of only 2 gigahertz, the ProDesk 400 G2 has one of the slower processor clock speeds amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
Personal computers with a faster processor clock speed that might be worth considering include the 7040[pl_3072619_price] (2.5GHz), or the 7040 Micro[pl_3139663_price] (2.5GHz) both from DELL which is also cheaper.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is typical of many computers of a comparable type and age 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.
We compared all the other HDD computers to this PC and we think the Fujitsu Esprimo E920[plb_2399576_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.
Personal computers with a faster storage speed that might also be worth considering include the HP ProDesk 600 G2 Mini[plb_3070061_price] (SSD), or the DELL 7040[plb_3072619_price] (SSD) which is also cheaper.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The ProDesk 400 G2 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 computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this PC.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
The average maximum turbo frequency of medium processor core personal computers that have been available for more than a year is 3.6GHz, and the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz. At only 3 gigahertz, the HP ProDesk 400 G2 has a quite slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the ProDesk 400 G2.

4 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 400 G2
Released Over Two Years Ago
HP released the ProDesk 400 G2 over two years ago.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 400 G2 has a relatively average total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers of this age and spec.
Other 500GB total storage capacity desktop computers currently available which you might also want to consider include cheaper computers such as the Fujitsu Esprimo E920[plb_2399576_price].
PCs with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth considering include the Z230[pl_2735174_price] (1TB), or the 600 G2[pl_3756858_price] (1TB) both from HP or the Lenovo H50[plb_2758491_price] (1TB) which is also cheaper.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 400 G2 has a fairly typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other PCs of a comparable type and age to the ProDesk 400 G2.
Other 500GB hard drive capacity computers currently available that you might also want to look at include cheaper computers such as the Fujitsu Esprimo E920[plb_2399576_price].
If this desktop computer hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the HP Z230[plb_2735174_price] (1TB), the Lenovo H50[plb_2758491_price] (1TB), or the Fujitsu W530[plb_2949105_price] (1TB) which is also cheaper.
+2 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 G2 has a fairly average internal memory compared to most of the other similar spec computers that came out around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G2.
Other 4GB memory computers currently available which you might also want to consider include cheaper PCs such as the Fujitsu Esprimo E920[plb_2399576_price].
Desktop computers with a bigger internal memory that might also be worth looking at include the HP Z230[plb_2735174_price] (8GB and cheaper), or the Acer Aspire X3-710[plb_3192160_price] (8GB and cheaper).
