HP is one of the superior computer manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and owners, and HP also has good reviews for its medium processor core personal computers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many PCs of a similar age and type to it.
Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to the ProDesk 600 G1 range from 640MHz to 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz. At 1,200 megahertz, the ProDesk 600 G1 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.6 gigahertz, the ProDesk 600 G1 has a fairly fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other personal computers of this type and age. Across all the personal computers of a comparable type and age to the ProDesk 600 G1 the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz.
Desktop computers with a faster processor clock speed that might be worth looking at include the Apple ME253 (3.7GHz).
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on PCs of a similar spec and age to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to it.
+6 More reasons for
Three PCI Express X1 Slots
The ProDesk 600 G1 has more PCI Express x1 slots than most of the medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1. This personal computer is a three PCI Express x1 slot computer compared to most of the medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1 which only have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots.
Eight Processor Threads
The HP ProDesk 600 G1 is a eight processor thread PC. Most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the ProDesk 600 G1 only have between four and seven processor threads.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the HP ProDesk 600 G1 is more than most computers of this age and spec. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on PCs that were launched more than a year ago.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to it.
The average height of medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the ProDesk 600 G1 is 300mm, and the heights range from 9.8mm to 560mm. With a height of only 100 millimeters, the ProDesk 600 G1 is one of the shorter computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the ProDesk 600 G1 amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
1 Reason Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on similar spec computers that have been on the market for more than a year. 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 you would prefer a computer with a faster storage speed then you might also want to look at the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini (£595.00) (SSD).
4 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 600 G1
Released Over Two Years Ago
This medium processor core desktop computer has been on the market for over two years.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 600 G1 has a pretty average total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1.
If you want a personal computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the HP 800 G2 (£557.53) (1TB).
Average Hard Drive Capacity
The ProDesk 600 G1 has a relatively typical hard drive capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other PCs that were released more than a year ago.
+2 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 600 G1 has a fairly typical internal memory compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1.
If you would prefer a bigger internal memory then you might want to consider the DELL 270 (£349.99) (6GB).
