Few processor core PCs produced by HP have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all personal computers (not just few processor core PCs) and found that HP also has good reviews across its entire range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many computers of a similar age and spec to it.
Four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most computers that were released more than a year ago have between one and five USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the ProDesk 600 G1 MT which has four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
The slowest processor clock speed of similar spec personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the ProDesk 600 G1 MT is 1GHz and the fastest is 3.9GHz. At 3.6 gigahertz, the ProDesk 600 G1 MT has a quite fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1 MT.
Three PCI Express X1 Slots
The ProDesk 600 G1 MT has more PCI Express x1 slots than most of the PCs of this spec and age. Most of the similar spec PCs that are a comparable age to the ProDesk 600 G1 MT only have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots, however this computer has three PCI Express x1 slots.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on PCs of this spec and age.
+9 More reasons for
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
Most of the other desktop computers of a comparable spec and age to the ProDesk 600 G1 MT only have one DisplayPort, however the ProDesk 600 G1 MT has two DisplayPorts.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
Most few processor core PCs that have been around for around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1 MT have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports, including the ProDesk 600 G1 MT which has six USB 2.0 ports.
Three 3.5" Bays
The HP ProDesk 600 G1 MT is a three 3.5" bay computer. Most of the other few processor core PCs that have been on the market for more than a year have between one and five 3.5" bays.
Four USB 3.0 Ports
Most computers that have been around for around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1 MT have between one and five USB 3.0 ports, including the ProDesk 600 G1 MT which has four USB 3.0 ports.
Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory
At 32 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 600 G1 MT has a quite big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other computers of a comparable age and spec to the ProDesk 600 G1 MT. The smallest maximum internal memory of few processor core PCs that have been around for a similar time to the ProDesk 600 G1 MT is 4GB, the biggest is 32GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 16GB.
Has One Memory Slot
The ProDesk 600 G1 MT has a greater number of memory slots than most personal computers that were released around the same time as it. The most frequently found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this personal computer. The memory slots 4x DIMM are also found on this desktop computer.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this desktop computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on personal computers of this age and spec.
6 Reasons Against
£27.89 Price Increase
In the last couple of weeks the price of the ProDesk 600 G1 MT has increased by £27.89.
The price range of personal computers of this age and spec is from £101 to £1,318. We think that this desktop computer looks expensive compared to other personal computers of this age and spec.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is typical of many few processor core PCs that have been on the market 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.
We compared all the other HDD computers to this PC and we think because of it's better review score, the Asus GR6 is also worth considering.
If the storage speed of this desktop computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the Asus Chromebox (£999.99) (SSD).
Only One 5.25" Bay
Most similar spec personal computers that have been around for more than a year have between one and two 5.25" bays, including the ProDesk 600 G1 MT which has one 5.25" bay.
+3 More reasons against
The lightest desktop computer of a similar type and age to the ProDesk 600 G1 MT is 140g heavy, the heaviest is 16kg, and the average weight is 4.7kg. With a weight of 9.3 kilograms, the ProDesk 600 G1 MT is one of the heavier desktop computers of a comparable age and type to the ProDesk 600 G1 MT amongst PCs of this age.
Across all the personal computers of a similar spec and age to the ProDesk 600 G1 MT the heights range from 10mm to 500mm, and the average height is 190mm. With a height of 399 millimeters, the ProDesk 600 G1 MT is one of the tallest few processor core PCs that have been available for around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1 MT amongst few processor core PCs of this age.
4 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 600 G1 MT
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when this desktop computer was released.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the ProDesk 600 G1 MT has a relatively standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other PCs of this age and type.
If you would prefer a desktop computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to consider the Asus GR6 (1TB) which is also higher rated.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 600 G1 MT has a relatively standard hard drive capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers of this spec and age.
+2 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the ProDesk 600 G1 MT has a pretty typical internal memory compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that have been around for around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1 MT.
If you would prefer a bigger internal memory then you might also want to consider the Asus GR6 (8GB) which also has a higher rating.
