HP medium processor core computers have good ratings on average and across all PCs HP is one of the superior manufacturers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many computers that were launched more than a year ago.
Quite Big Hard Drive Capacity
Across all the personal computers of a comparable type and age to the ProDesk 400 G2 the hard drive capacity range from 1GB to 3TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 860GB. At 1,000 gigabyte, the HP ProDesk 400 G2 has a quite big hard drive capacity compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G2.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 1TB hard drive capacity computers currently available including the HP 110 (£428.73), or the Acer Aspire XC-605 (£399.00) which is cheaper.
Computers with a bigger hard drive capacity that might be worth considering include the Acer Aspire T3-710 (£461.98) (2TB and cheaper), or the Lenovo H50 (£379.97) (2TB and cheaper).
Quite Big Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the ProDesk 400 G2 has one of the bigger total storage capacity amongst medium processor core computers of this age. Similar spec PCs that have been around for more than a year have total storage capacity of between 4GB and 3.6TB.
We compared this personal computer to all the other 1TB total storage capacity desktop computers and we think the HP 110 (£428.73), and the Acer Aspire XC-605 (£399.00) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If you are looking for a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the Acer Aspire T3-710 (£461.98) (2TB and cheaper).
Fairly Big Internal Memory
The smallest internal memory of personal computers of a comparable type and age to the ProDesk 400 G2 is 2GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average internal memory is 7.8GB. With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 400 G2 has one of the bigger internal memory amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
If this medium processor core computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the DELL Inspiron 3847 (£470.00) (16GB and cheaper).
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on medium processor core computers that were launched more than a year ago.
+6 More reasons for
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on comparable spec desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many personal computers of a similar age and type to it.
Three PCI Express X1 Slots
The ProDesk 400 G2 has more PCI Express x1 slots than most of the desktop computers of this type and age. This personal computer is a three PCI Express x1 slot personal computer compared to most of the similar spec PCs that were released around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G2 which only have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
Most medium processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G2 have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports, including the HP ProDesk 400 G2 which has six USB 2.0 ports.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many personal computers of a similar spec and age to it.
3 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many medium 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.
We compared all the other HDD personal computers to this PC and we think the Lenovo M91p (£426.50), the DELL OptiPlex 7010 (£379.99), and the HP 280 G1 (£343.19) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
Computers with a faster storage speed that might be worth looking at include the EliteDesk 800 G1 (SSD and cheaper), or the 800 G2 (£877.87) (SSD and cheaper) both from HP or the Fujitsu D556 (£459.78) (SSD and cheaper).
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This PC supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many desktop computers of this type and age.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the ProDesk 400 G2 is more than most computers that were launched around the same time as it. The most frequently found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this personal computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this desktop computer.
2 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 400 G2
Released Over a Year Ago
This HP computer has been on the market for over a year.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The ProDesk 400 G2 has a fairly standard processor clock speed (3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that are a comparable age to the ProDesk 400 G2.
If this personal computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the Lenovo M91p (£426.50) (3.1GHz and cheaper), or the Acer Aspire XC-705 (3.1GHz and cheaper).
