+7 More reasons for
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This PC has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as it.
Three PCI Express X1 Slots
The ProDesk 600 is a three PCI Express x1 slot personal computer. Most of the other computers of this age and spec only have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots.
The ProDesk 600 is a two DisplayPort PC. Most of the other similar spec desktop computers that came out more than two years ago have between one and three DisplayPorts.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The HP ProDesk 600 is a six USB 2.0 port personal computer. Most of the other computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the ProDesk 600 have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports.
Has One Memory Slot
The HP ProDesk 600 has a greater number of memory slots than most similar spec PCs that were launched around the same time as it. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the ProDesk 600.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to it.
5 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on medium processor core personal computers 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.
Very Small Internal Memory
The smallest internal memory of personal computers of this type and age is 2GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average internal memory is 7.5GB. With an internal memory of only 4 gigabytes, the ProDesk 600 has a fairly small internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago.
If this medium processor core desktop computer internal memory is too small for you then you might want to consider the DELL OptiPlex 7020 SFF (8GB).
Very Small Hard Drive Capacity
Comparable spec computers that are a similar age to the ProDesk 600 have hard drive capacity of between 320GB and 3TB. The HP ProDesk 600 has a quite small hard drive capacity (only 500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other computers of a similar age and spec to the ProDesk 600.
If this personal computer hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the Acer Aspire XC-703 (1TB) which also has a higher rating.
Quite Small Processor Cache
At only 6 megabytes, the ProDesk 600 has a fairly small processor cache compared to most of the other PCs of a similar type and age to the ProDesk 600. Medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago have processor caches of between 0.51MB and 10MB.
+2 More reasons against
Only One PCI Express X16 Slot
The HP ProDesk 600 is a one PCI Express x16 slot personal computer. Most of the other computers of this type and age have between one and two PCI Express x16 slots.
3 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 600
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when HP released the ProDesk 600.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.2 gigahertz, the ProDesk 600 has a relatively typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other PCs that were released around the same time as the ProDesk 600.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 600 has a pretty typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that came out more than two years ago.
Personal computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth considering include the Apple Mac Pro (512GB).
