13 Reasons For
HP Has Good Personal Computer Reviews
We checked 242 owner and expert reviews for HP computers and found that on average HP has good reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that HP has good reviews specifically within its few processor core computers range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on comparable spec personal computers that were launched more than a year ago.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
At 350 megahertz, the ProDesk 400 MT has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other PCs of this type and age. The on-board graphics adapter base frequencies of few processor core computers that have been available for a similar time to the ProDesk 400 MT range from 100MHz to 690MHz.
Fairly Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
At 32 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 MT has a fairly big max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other personal computers of this spec and age. The average max internal memory supported processor of computers of a comparable age and spec to the ProDesk 400 MT is 27GB, and the max internal memory supported processors range from 4GB to 64GB.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
The HP ProDesk 400 MT has a quite fast processor clock speed (3.6 gigahertz) compared to most of the other PCs of this age and spec. The average processor clock speed of few processor core computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the ProDesk 400 MT is 2.8GHz.
There are a number of alternative 3.6GHz processor clock speed personal computers currently available which you might also want to look at including the DELL OptiPlex 7020 SFF[plb_2789005_price], the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_2447850_price], or the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_2701641_price] which is cheaper.
At 1,000 gigabyte, the ProDesk 400 MT has a fairly big hard drive capacity compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 MT. The hard drive capacity of computers that are a comparable age to the ProDesk 400 MT range from 320GB to 2TB.
We compared this personal computer to all the other 1TB hard drive capacity computers and we think the Lenovo H30[plb_2938487_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.
Computers with a bigger hard drive capacity that might also be worth looking at include the Acer Revo One RL85[plb_3132464_price] (2TB and higher rated).
+8 More reasons for
Quite Big Total Storage Capacity
The smallest total storage capacity of PCs that have been available for a similar time to the ProDesk 400 MT is 8GB and the biggest is 3TB. The ProDesk 400 MT has one of the bigger total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) amongst few processor core computers of this age.
Computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth looking at include the Acer Revo One RL85[plb_3132464_price] (2TB) which is also higher rated.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many few processor core computers that have been around for a similar time to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many few processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
Four Processor Threads
Most of the other PCs of a comparable age and spec to the ProDesk 400 MT only have between two and three processor threads, however the HP ProDesk 400 MT has four processor threads.
Four USB 2.0 Ports
Most desktop computers that were released more than a year ago have between one and seven USB 2.0 ports, including the HP ProDesk 400 MT which has four USB 2.0 ports.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this desktop computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on few processor core computers that were released around the same time as it.
4 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The ProDesk 400 MT is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port desktop computer. Most of the other few processor core computers that were released around the same time as the ProDesk 400 MT have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is typical of many similar spec PCs 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.
We compared all the other HDD desktop computers to this personal computer and we think the Acer Revo One RL85[plb_3132464_price] which has better reviews; or the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF[plb_2996403_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.
If the storage speed of this personal computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the Asus Chromebox[plb_2403418_price] (SSD), or the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF[plb_2972867_price] (SSD) which is also cheaper.
The cheapeast PCs of this age and spec that we found costs £99 and the most expensive costs £834. We think that this few processor core PC looks expensive for a desktop computer of this spec and age.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of only 1.7 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 MT has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories amongst computers of this age. Computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the ProDesk 400 MT have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 16GB.
+1 More reason against
2 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 400 MT
Released Over a Year Ago
HP released the ProDesk 400 MT over a year ago.
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 4 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 400 MT has a pretty standard internal memory compared to most of the other few processor core computers that were launched more than a year ago.
Other 4GB memory desktop computers currently available that you might want to look at include the Chromebox[pl_2403418_price], or the VM62[pl_2901562_price] both from Asus which is cheaper.
If this desktop computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Lenovo H30[plb_2938487_price] (8GB and cheaper), or the Asus K31AD[plb_3108668_price] (8GB and cheaper).
