+9 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many computers of this age and spec.
Most of the other personal computers of a similar type and age to the ProDesk 600 G1 only have one DisplayPort, however the ProDesk 600 G1 has two DisplayPorts.
Four USB 3.0 Ports
The HP ProDesk 600 G1 is a four USB 3.0 port PC. Most of the other PCs of a comparable age and type to the ProDesk 600 G1 have between one and five USB 3.0 ports.
DDR3-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This personal computer has a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type, which is typical of many few processor core PCs that have been available for more than two years.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
When compared to other similar spec PCs that have been available for more than two years that we have assessed the processor cache of, the ProDesk 600 G1's processor cache of 4 megabytes is one of the biggest. Across all the similar spec computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1 the processor caches range from 0.51MB to 6MB, and the average processor cache is 2.9MB.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the HP ProDesk 600 G1 is more than most desktop computers of this age and spec. The most frequently found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this desktop computer. The memory slots 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this personal computer.
With a depth of only 177 millimeters, the HP ProDesk 600 G1 is quite shallow compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that have been around for a similar time to the ProDesk 600 G1. The depths of comparable spec desktop computers that were released more than two years ago range from 33mm to 460mm.
When compared to other few processor core PCs that have been on the market for more than two years, the height of the HP ProDesk 600 G1 of only 34 millimeters is one of the shortest. PCs that have been around for a similar time to the ProDesk 600 G1 have heights of between 30mm and 430mm.
2 Reasons Against
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
The on-board graphics adapter base frequencies of few processor core PCs that have been around for more than two years range from 200MHz to 800MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 360MHz. The ProDesk 600 G1 has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency (only 200 megahertz) compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that were released around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1.
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
The HP ProDesk 600 G1 is a two USB 2.0 port desktop computer.
5 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 600 G1
Released Over Two Years Ago
This few processor core personal computer was released over two years ago.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 600 G1 has a fairly average total storage capacity compared to most of the other PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the ProDesk 600 G1.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the ProDesk 600 G1 has a pretty typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and spec.
+3 Other reasons
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is typical of many few processor core PCs that were launched more than two years ago. 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.
Average Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 2.9 gigahertz, the ProDesk 600 G1 has a pretty typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar spec and age to the ProDesk 600 G1.
