HP has good average reviews for its medium processor core personal computers as well as across its entire PC range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many similar spec personal computers that came out 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 typical of many personal computers of this age and spec.
Four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The ProDesk 600 G1 is a four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port PC. Most of the other personal computers that have been available for more than two years have between one and eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This 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 two years ago.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on PCs of this type and age.
+6 More reasons for
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to it.
Three PCI Express X1 Slots
The ProDesk 600 G1 is a three PCI Express x1 slot personal computer.
Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory
The average maximum internal memory of PCs that have been around for around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1 is 32GB. At 32 gigabytes, the ProDesk 600 G1 has a fairly big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the ProDesk 600 G1.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the HP ProDesk 600 G1 is more than most personal computers that have been available for more than two years. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on computers of this type and age.
At only 100 millimeters, the HP ProDesk 600 G1 is quite short compared to most of the other PCs of this spec and age. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago the heights range from 19mm to 560mm, and the average height is 280mm.
2 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is typical of many personal computers that have been around for around the same time as 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.
Quite Small L3 Cache
Medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than two years ago have L3 caches of between 2MB and 10MB. The ProDesk 600 G1 has a fairly small L3 cache (only 6 megabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago.
5 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 600 G1
Released Over Two Years Ago
This computer was released over two years ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.2 gigahertz, the HP ProDesk 600 G1 has a relatively typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and type.
If you would prefer a computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the DELL OptiPlex 7020 (3.3GHz).
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the ProDesk 600 G1 has a fairly average total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the ProDesk 600 G1.
If this personal computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the Apple Mac Pro (512GB).
+3 Other reasons
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 PCs of a similar spec and age to the ProDesk 600 G1.
If you would prefer a bigger hard drive capacity then you might also want to look at the HP Z230 (£935.04) (1TB) which is also higher rated.
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 4 gigabytes, the ProDesk 600 G1 has a fairly typical internal memory compared to most of the other similar spec computers that are a comparable age to the ProDesk 600 G1.
