Medium processor core personal computers manufactured by HP have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all computers (not just medium processor core personal computers) and found that HP also has good ratings across its entire range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many computers of this age and spec.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This personal computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many PCs of a similar spec and age to it.
SSD Storage Medium
The ProDesk 490 G2 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most computers that are a similar age to it. 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 amongst all desktop computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the ProDesk 490 G2.
Amongst similar types of computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
Other SSD computers currently available which you might want to look at include because of it's better review score, the DELL Precision T1700 SFF (£600.28).
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many personal computers of this spec and age.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many computers of this spec and age.

10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This PC has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many personal computers of a similar spec and age to it.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the ProDesk 490 G2 is more than most computers of a comparable age and type to it. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the ProDesk 490 G2.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on medium processor core personal computers that came out more than two years ago.
Across all the medium processor core personal computers that came out more than two years ago the widths range from 33mm to 490mm. The ProDesk 490 G2 is quite narrow (only 165 millimeters) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the ProDesk 490 G2.
7 Reasons Against
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
The total storage capacity of medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than two years ago range from 32GB to 3TB. The total storage capacity of the ProDesk 490 G2 of only 128 gigabytes is one of the smallest amongst PCs of a comparable spec and age to the ProDesk 490 G2.
Very Small Internal Memory
With an internal memory of only 4 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 490 G2 has a fairly small internal memory compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that were released more than two years ago. The average internal memory of personal computers of this spec and age is 7.5GB, and the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
At only 1.024 gigabytes, the ProDesk 490 G2 has a quite small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the ProDesk 490 G2. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago the maximum on-board graphics adapter memories range from 1GB to 2GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 1.4GB.
Only Four USB 2.0 Ports
Most personal computers of this spec and age have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports, including the ProDesk 490 G2 which has four USB 2.0 ports.
+4 More reasons against
Quite Small Processor Cache
At only 6 megabytes, the HP ProDesk 490 G2 has a fairly small processor cache compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to the ProDesk 490 G2. Comparable spec PCs that have been around for a similar time to the ProDesk 490 G2 have processor caches of between 0.51MB and 10MB.
Only Four Processor Threads
Most medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the ProDesk 490 G2 have between four and seven processor threads, including the ProDesk 490 G2 which has four processor threads.
Only One PCI Express X16 Slot
The ProDesk 490 G2 is a one PCI Express x16 slot desktop computer.
2 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 490 G2
Released Over Two Years Ago
This desktop computer has been on the market for over two years.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The ProDesk 490 G2 has a relatively standard processor clock speed (3.3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and spec.
If you would prefer a PC with a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the HP Z230 (£935.04) (3.4GHz) which also has a higher rating.
