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.

Chart Edit

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.
