The ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF has a quite fast processor clock speed (3.6 gigahertz) compared to most of the other computers that were released around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF. The processor clock speeds of PCs that were released one year ago range from 1GHz to 3.9GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.8GHz.
PCs with a faster processor clock speed that might be worth considering include the Fujitsu D556 (£293.98) (3.7GHz), or the Lenovo S500 SFF (3.7GHz).
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on personal computers of a similar age and type to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many PCs of a similar age and type to it.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many PCs that have been on the market for more than a year.
+1 More reason for
3 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on similar spec personal computers that are a comparable 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.
Only One 3.5" Bay
Most desktop computers that were launched more than a year ago have between one and five 3.5" bays, including the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF which has one 3.5" bay.
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
The ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF is a two USB 3.0 port personal computer. Most of the other personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF have between one and five USB 3.0 ports.
4 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF
Released Over a Year Ago
This personal computer was released over a year ago.
Average Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF has a relatively standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers that were released around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF.
If this computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the DELL 3847 (1TB).
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF has a fairly typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that have been available for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF.
If you are looking for a bigger hard drive capacity then you might also want to consider the HP Pavilion Mini 300 (1TB and higher rated).
+2 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF has a fairly average internal memory compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that were launched more than a year ago.
If you want a bigger internal memory then you might also want to consider the HP Pavilion Mini 300 (8GB) which also has a higher rating.
