On average HP medium processor core personal computers have good ratings compared to other manufacturers as do all computers produced by HP.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on personal computers of this spec and age.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on medium processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago.
At only 1.3 kilograms, the ProDesk 400 Mini is fairly light compared to most of the other PCs that have been available for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 Mini. Across all the comparable spec personal computers that were launched around the same time as the ProDesk 400 Mini the weights range from 38g to 100kg, and the average weight is 7.5kg.
+3 More reasons for
The ProDesk 400 Mini is one of the shallower computers of this type and age (only 177 millimeters) amongst desktop computers of this age. The shallowest medium processor core desktop computer that came out more than a year ago is 31mm deep and the deepest is 590mm.
Desktop computers of a similar age and type to the ProDesk 400 Mini have heights of between 9.8mm and 560mm. When compared to other computers of this age and type that we have checked the height of, the ProDesk 400 Mini's height of only 34 millimeters is one of the shortest.
9 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The ProDesk 400 Mini is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port PC. Most of the other personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 Mini have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
The processor clock speeds of PCs of a similar spec and age to the ProDesk 400 Mini range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz. The HP ProDesk 400 Mini has one of the slower processor clock speeds (only 2 gigahertz) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
If you want a computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_3106865_price] (2.2GHz) which is also higher rated.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year. 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.
If you are looking for a personal computer with a faster storage speed then you might want to look at the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini[plb_3078512_price] (SSD).
Very Small Internal Memory
The smallest internal memory of PCs of this age and spec is 2GB and the biggest is 64GB. The ProDesk 400 Mini has one of the smaller internal memory (only 4 gigabytes) amongst PCs of this age.
If you are looking for a PC with a bigger internal memory then you might also want to look at the HP 800 G2[plb_3799899_price] (8GB) which is also higher rated.
+6 More reasons against
Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity
The hard drive capacity of personal computers of a similar type and age to the ProDesk 400 Mini range from 1GB to 3TB. With a hard drive capacity of only 500 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 Mini has a quite small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 Mini.
If you are looking for a bigger hard drive capacity then you might also want to consider the HP 600 G2[plb_3791095_price] (1TB).
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
Most computers of this spec and age have between one and seven USB 3.0 ports, including the ProDesk 400 Mini which has two USB 3.0 ports.
Quite Small Processor Cache
At only 6 megabytes, the ProDesk 400 Mini has a fairly small processor cache compared to most of the other personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the ProDesk 400 Mini. Comparable spec personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 Mini have processor caches of between 2MB and 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.6MB.
Only Four Processor Threads
The HP ProDesk 400 Mini is a four processor thread personal computer. Most of the other personal computers of a similar age and spec to the ProDesk 400 Mini have between four and seven processor threads.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
The ProDesk 400 Mini has one of the slower maximum turbo frequencies (only 3 gigahertz) amongst computers of this age. The average maximum turbo frequency of computers of this age and type is 3.6GHz, and the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz.
2 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 400 Mini
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when this HP PC was released.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 400 Mini has a fairly average total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers of this spec and age.
If you want a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to look at the DELL Inspiron 3647[plb_3110567_price] (1TB) which also has a higher rating.
