On average HP medium processor core computers have good reviews compared to other brands as do all computers built by HP.
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 a comparable time to it.
Supports One Case Placement
The HP 400 G3 has a greater number of placements than most medium processor core computers that were launched in the last year. The most frequently supported case placement is Vertical, but this case placement is not supported by this personal computer. The case placements Horizontal are also supported by this HP desktop computer.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is typical of many new PCs.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many recently released medium processor core computers.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to it.
+3 More reasons for
The average weight of medium processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to the 400 G3 is 7kg, and the weights range from 38g to 23kg. The HP 400 G3 is fairly light (only 4.4 kilograms) compared to most of the other similar spec computers that are a comparable age to the 400 G3.
The widths of latest comparable spec personal computers range from 34mm to 7,100mm, and the average width is 200mm. At only 95 millimeters, the HP 400 G3 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 400 G3.
5 Reasons Against
Very Small Hard Drive Capacity
At only 500 gigabytes, the HP 400 G3 has a fairly small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the 400 G3. Across all the newly released comparable spec desktop computers the hard drive capacity range from 120GB to 3TB.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The HP 400 G3 has a greater number of memory slots than most new medium processor core computers. 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 desktop computer.
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This computer supports a 10|100|1000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN data rate, which is typical of many desktop computers that were released in the last year.
Only One DisplayPort
Most PCs that have been available for a similar time to the 400 G3 have between one and three DisplayPorts, including the HP 400 G3 which has one DisplayPort.
+2 More reasons against
Only One PCI Express X16 (Gen 3.x) Slot
Most new personal computers have between one and two PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slots, including the HP 400 G3 which has one PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slot.
5 Other reasons to consider the HP 400 G3
Released Ten Months Ago
This HP personal computer was released ten months ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.2 gigahertz, the HP 400 G3 has a pretty standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that came out in the last 12 months.
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the HP 400 G3 has a pretty standard internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been around for a similar time to the 400 G3.
+3 Other reasons
Average Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the HP 400 G3 has a relatively typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that came out in the last 12 months.
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that were released in the last 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.
