3 Reasons For

HP Has Good Personal Computer Reviews

Many processor cores PCs produced by HP have good reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all PCs (not just many processor cores PCs) and found that HP also has good reviews across its entire range.

Quite Fast Memory Clock Speeds Supported by Processor

The memory clock speeds supported by processors of comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the 640 range from 800MHz to 1,600MHz, and the average memory clock speeds supported by processor is 1,400MHz. The HP 640 has one of the faster memory clock speeds supported by processors (1,600 megahertz) amongst computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory

The maximum internal memorys of personal computers of this type and age range from 32GB to 520GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 180GB. At 256 gigabytes, the HP 640 has a quite big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other many processor cores PCs that are a comparable age to the 640.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Processor Frequency

The HP 640 has one of the slower processor frequencys (only 2.4 gigahertz) amongst similar spec desktop computers of this age. Across all the many processor cores PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the 640 the processor frequencys range from 1.6GHz to 3.5GHz, and the average processor frequency is 3GHz.

If this personal computer processor frequency is too slow for you then you might want to look at the DELL Precision T5810[plb_3433476_price] (3.5GHz) which is also higher rated.

Only Two USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys

Most computers of a comparable type and age to the 640 have between two and eight USB 2.0 ports quantitys, including the HP 640 which has two USB 2.0 ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Only Has One Memory Slots

The number of memory slots found on the HP 640 is more than most many processor cores PCs that have been around for a comparable time to it. The most commonly found memory slots is 8x DIMM, but this memory slots is not found on this desktop computer. The memory slotss 4x DIMM are also found on this personal computer.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Boost Frequency

The HP 640 has a quite slow processor boost frequency (only 3.2 gigahertz) compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar type and age to the 640. Across all the many processor cores PCs that are a similar age to the 640 the processor boost frequencys range from 2.6GHz to 3.9GHz.

Chart Edit

5 Other reasons to consider the HP 640

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when HP released the 640.

Average Internal Memory

The HP 640 has a fairly typical internal memory (16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other many processor cores PCs that came out around the same time as the 640.

Chart Edit

Average Hard Drive Capacity

At 1,000 gigabyte, the HP 640 has a pretty typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other many processor cores PCs that were released more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 1,000 gigabyte, the HP 640 has a relatively average total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the 640.

Chart Edit

HDD Storage Media

The HP 640 has an HDD storage media which is faster than most similar spec computers that were launched around the same time as it. Most PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to it have an SSD storage media. 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 think you might also be interested in some of the alternative HDD computers currently available including because of it's better review score, the HP Z420[plb_2498184_price].
