HP is one of the better rated personal computer manufacturers according to average user and expert reviews, and HP also has good reviews for its medium processor core computers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many desktop computers that were launched around the same time as it.
SSD Storage Medium
The ProDesk 400 G2 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most desktop computers of a similar spec and age to it. Most computers that are a comparable age to it have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.
This personal computer's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed across all personal computers of this age and spec.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed across comparable types of personal computer.
If you would prefer a personal computer with a faster storage speed then you might also want to consider the Zotac ZBOX PI320 (Flash), or the Asus CHROMEBIT (£99.97) (Flash) which also has a higher rating.
Three PCI Express X1 Slots
The ProDesk 400 G2 is a three PCI Express x1 slot PC. Most of the other computers of this spec and age only have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots.
Quite Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
At 4 gigahertz, the ProDesk 400 G2 has a quite fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and spec. Medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G2 have maximum turbo frequencies of between 1.8GHz and 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz.
3 PCI Express Slots Version

6 Reasons Against
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
When compared to other PCs of this spec and age, the total storage capacity of the HP ProDesk 400 G2 of only 128 gigabytes is one of the smallest. The smallest total storage capacity of computers that were released one year ago is 4GB and the biggest is 3.6TB.
Desktop computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth looking at include the Lenovo M73 (180GB), or the HP 440 (£2,215.78) (256GB) which also has a higher rating.
Very Small Internal Memory
The internal memory of comparable spec desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G2 range from 2GB to 64GB. At only 4 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 G2 has a fairly small internal memory compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that were released one year ago.
Desktop computers with a bigger internal memory that might be worth looking at include the 800 G2 (£792.82) (8GB), the 800 G2 (8GB), or the EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF (£916.22) (8GB) all from HP.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This desktop computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on computers of a comparable age and spec to it.

The ProDesk 400 G2 has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core computers that have been available for more than a year. 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 HP computer.
+3 More reasons against
Quite Small Solid-State Drive Capacity
The average solid-state drive capacity of medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G2 is 210GB, and the solid-state drive capacities range from 8GB to 1TB. At only 128 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 G2 has a quite small solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other PCs that were released one year ago.
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
The ProDesk 400 G2 has one of the smaller maximum internal memory (only 16 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core computers of this age. The average maximum internal memory of medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G2 is 33GB.

Average Processor Clock Speed
