11 Reasons For
HP Has Good Desktop Computer Reviews
HP is one of the superior personal computer manufacturers according to average reviews from users and experts, and HP also has good ratings for its medium processor core computers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
Only Released Six Months Ago
This HP desktop computer is one of the newest PCs to be released.
SSD Storage Medium
The HP 400 G2 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most medium processor core computers that have been around for the last year. Most latest medium processor core computers have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.
This computer's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed amongst all comparable spec PCs that were released in the last year.
The worst storage speed amongst comparable types of computer is HDD.
We compared this computer to all the other SSD desktop computers and we think cheaper PCs such as the DELL 7040 is also worth considering.
Two Mini PCI Express Slots
The HP 400 G2 has more mini PCI Express slots than most of the desktop computers that are a similar age to the 400 G2. This computer is a two mini PCI Express slot desktop computer compared to most of the new medium processor core computers which only have one mini PCI Express slot.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many similar spec personal computers that have been around for the last year.
+6 More reasons for
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This desktop computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is typical of many latest medium processor core computers.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many computers that were released in the last 12 months.
Medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as the 400 G2 have depths of between 34mm and 600mm. At only 177 millimeters, the HP 400 G2 is fairly shallow compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the 400 G2.
At only 1.3 kilograms, the HP 400 G2 is quite light compared to most of the other PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 400 G2. Desktop computers that came out around the same time as the 400 G2 have weights of between 38g and 23kg, and the average weight is 7kg.
The HP 400 G2 is one of the shortest latest medium processor core computers (only 34 millimeters) amongst medium processor core computers of this age. Newly released medium processor core computers have heights of between 10mm and 530mm, and the average height is 300mm.
7 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of only 256 gigabytes, the HP 400 G2 has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other recently released computers. The smallest total storage capacity of latest medium processor core computers is 32GB and the biggest is 3.5TB.
There are a number of alternative 256GB total storage capacity desktop computers currently available that you might want to consider including the Lenovo ThinkCentre M900 Tiny ($849.99) which is cheaper.
Desktop computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth considering include the HP 600 G2 MT (500GB) which is also cheaper.
Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of only 2.5 gigahertz, the HP 400 G2 has one of the slower processor clock speeds amongst personal computers of this age. Latest comparable spec personal computers have processor clock speeds of between 1.3GHz and 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz.
There are a number of other 2.5GHz processor clock speed desktop computers currently available which you might want to consider including cheaper computers such as the 7040, or the 7040 Micro ($375.00) both from DELL or the Lenovo ThinkCentre M900 Tiny ($611.89).
If this PC processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the 550-267ng (2.7GHz), or the 400 G3 SFF ($680.47) (3.2GHz) both from HP or the Acer Veriton M2610 (3.2GHz) which is also cheaper.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the HP 400 G2 is more than most desktop computers that have been available for a comparable time to it. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this personal computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this HP personal computer.
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This personal computer supports 10, 100, 1000, 10, 100 and 1000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN data transfer rates, which is the most frequently supported Ethernet LAN data rate on medium processor core computers that have been on the market for a similar time to it.
+4 More reasons against
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
With a maximum internal memory of only 16 gigabytes, the HP 400 G2 has one of the smaller maximum internal memory amongst medium processor core computers of this age. Medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 400 G2 have maximum internal memory of between 2GB and 260GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 40GB.
Only Four Processor Threads
The HP 400 G2 is a four processor thread desktop computer. Most of the other new comparable spec computers have between four and seven processor threads.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
With a maximum turbo frequency of only 3.1 gigahertz, the HP 400 G2 has a fairly slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other new medium processor core computers. Recently released medium processor core computers have maximum turbo frequencies of between 1.8GHz and 4.2GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz.
1 Other reason to consider the HP 400 G2
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the HP 400 G2 has a fairly average internal memory compared to most of the other recently released medium processor core computers.
Alternative 8GB memory PCs currently available that you might want to consider include cheaper personal computers such as the DELL T3420.
If this personal computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the HP 750-274na (16GB).
