On average HP medium processor core computers have good ratings compared to other brands as do all desktop computers manufactured by HP.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as 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 of a comparable type and 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 actually the best storage speed across all medium processor core computers that were launched more than a year ago.
The worst storage speed across similar types of desktop computer is HDD.
If the storage speed of this personal computer is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the Zotac ZBOX PI320 (Flash and higher rated), or the Asus CHROMEBIT (£99.97) (Flash and higher rated).
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on comparable spec desktop computers that came out more than a year ago.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many computers of this type and age.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many computers of this age and spec.
+4 More reasons for
Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory
Medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as the ProDesk 490 G2 have maximum internal memory of between 2GB and 520GB. With a maximum internal memory of 32 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 490 G2 has one of the bigger maximum internal memory amongst computers of this age.
Has One Memory Slot
The ProDesk 490 G2 has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core computers that were launched more than a year ago. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on desktop computers of a similar age and type to the ProDesk 490 G2.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on PCs that have been available for a similar time to it.
2 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
Across all the medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the ProDesk 490 G2 the total storage capacity range from 4GB to 3.6TB. With a total storage capacity of only 128 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 490 G2 has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers of this spec and age.
Computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth considering include the Lenovo M73 (180GB) which also has a higher rating.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This personal computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on medium processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to it.
3 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 490 G2
Released Over a Year Ago
This desktop computer was released over a year ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.3 gigahertz, the ProDesk 490 G2 has a relatively standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable spec and age to the ProDesk 490 G2.
If you would prefer a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the Sedatech UC00725I3 (£541.06) (3.4GHz).
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 4 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 490 G2 has a relatively typical internal memory compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that were launched around the same time as the ProDesk 490 G2.
If you want a bigger internal memory then you might also want to look at the DELL 270 (£349.99) (6GB).
