14 Reasons For

HP Has Good Reviews for Its Computers

HP has good average ratings for its medium processor core personal computers as well as across its entire computer range compared to other brands.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on PCs of a similar age and spec to it.

Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (1,200 megahertz) compared to most of the other computers of this type and age. The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of PCs of this type and age range from 640MHz to 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF has a faster storage speed than most medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than a year. This desktop computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most comparable spec computers that have been around for a similar time 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.

An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage speed across all PCs that came out more than a year ago.

The worst storage speed amongst comparable types of PC is HDD.
