+4 More reasons for
Three PCI Express X1 Slots
The ProDesk 400 G2 has more PCI Express x1 slots than most of the comparable spec PCs that were released around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G2. Most of the medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the ProDesk 400 G2 only have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots, however this personal computer has three PCI Express x1 slots.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as it.
Comparable spec computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G2 have widths of between 33mm and 490mm, and the average width is 190mm. At only 165 millimeters, the ProDesk 400 G2 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the ProDesk 400 G2.
11 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The ProDesk 400 G2 is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port computer.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than two years. 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.
Very Small Internal Memory
With an internal memory of only 4 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 400 G2 has a fairly small internal memory compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G2. The average internal memory of computers that were released more than two years ago is 7.5GB, and the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB.
At only 500 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 G2 has a quite small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other computers of a similar age and type to the ProDesk 400 G2. The hard drive capacity of medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago range from 320GB to 3TB.
+8 More reasons against
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
At only 1.024 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 G2 has a quite small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the ProDesk 400 G2. The smallest maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago is 1GB and the biggest is 2GB.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The HP ProDesk 400 G2 has a greater number of memory slots than most similar spec computers that have been available for around the same time as it. The most frequently found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this desktop computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this computer.
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
The ProDesk 400 G2 is a two USB 3.0 port PC. Most of the other desktop computers of this spec and age have between one and eight USB 3.0 ports.
Only One DisplayPort
The HP ProDesk 400 G2 is a one DisplayPort personal computer.
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
The ProDesk 400 G2 has one of the smaller maximum internal memory (only 16 gigabytes) amongst personal computers of this age. The maximum internal memory of PCs of a comparable age and type to the ProDesk 400 G2 range from 2GB to 260GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 32GB.
Only Four Processor Threads
The ProDesk 400 G2 is a four processor thread PC.
Only One PCI Express X16 Slot
The ProDesk 400 G2 is a one PCI Express x16 slot PC.
3 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 400 G2
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when this PC was released.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.3 gigahertz, the ProDesk 400 G2 has a relatively standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other computers that came out more than two years ago.
Average Total Storage Capacity
The ProDesk 400 G2 has a fairly typical total storage capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the ProDesk 400 G2.
If you want a desktop computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to look at the Apple Mac Pro (512GB).
