Few processor core computers manufactured by HP have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all desktop computers (not just few processor core computers) and found that HP also has good ratings across its entire range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on few processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This desktop computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on computers of this type and age.
Fairly Big Internal Memory
The ProDesk 600 G1 has one of the bigger internal memory (8 gigabytes) amongst computers of this age. The internal memory of few processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1 range from 1GB to 16GB, and the average internal memory is 4.9GB.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many personal computers of this type and age.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on comparable spec desktop computers that have been available for a similar time to it.
+5 More reasons for
Fairly Big Processor Cache
With a processor cache of 4 megabytes, the ProDesk 600 G1 has a quite big processor cache compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been available for more than two years. Few processor core computers that are a comparable age to the ProDesk 600 G1 have processor caches of between 0.51MB and 4MB, and the average processor cache is 2.9MB.
Has One Memory Slot
The ProDesk 600 G1 has a greater number of memory slots than most desktop computers that were launched more than two years ago. The most commonly found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this HP personal computer. The memory slots 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this computer.
At only 177 millimeters, the HP ProDesk 600 G1 is quite shallow compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar age and type to the ProDesk 600 G1. The depths of PCs that were released more than two years ago range from 27mm to 460mm.
With a height of only 34 millimeters, the HP ProDesk 600 G1 is one of the shorter few processor core computers that came out more than two years ago amongst few processor core computers of this age. The average height of few processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1 is 210mm, and the heights range from 22mm to 450mm.
3 Reasons Against
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
The ProDesk 600 G1 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency (only 200 megahertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that were released around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1. The average on-board graphics adapter base frequency of few processor core computers that were released more than two years ago is 350MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 200MHz to 800MHz.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar 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.
If the storage speed of this HP computer is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the Shuttle DSA2LS (£148.75) (Flash).
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
The ProDesk 600 G1 is a two USB 2.0 port computer.
4 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 600 G1
Released Over Two Years Ago
This computer has been on the market for over two years.
Average Total Storage Capacity
The ProDesk 600 G1 has a relatively standard total storage capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other desktop computers of this type and age.
If you want a desktop computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the HP ProDesk 400 G1 (£402.00) (1TB).
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 600 G1 has a fairly typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that have been available for around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1.
+2 Other reasons
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 2.9 gigahertz, the ProDesk 600 G1 has a pretty average processor clock speed compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable age and type to the ProDesk 600 G1.
