The 400 G3 MT was only relased by HP two months ago.
HP Has Good Reviews for Its Desktop Computers
We calculated the average ratings for all HP desktop computers and also specifically for HP medium processor core computers and found that in both cases HP had good ratings compared to other brands.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on comparable spec personal computers that came out in the last 12 months.
Three PCI Express X1 (Gen 2.x) Slots
Most of the other comparable spec computers that were launched in the last 12 months only have between one and two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slots, however the 400 G3 MT has three PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slots.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is the most frequently found internal memory type on medium processor core computers that were launched in the last 12 months.
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 medium processor core computers that have been on the market for a similar time to it.
+2 More reasons for
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many personal computers that came out around the same time as it.
4 Reasons Against
Very Small Internal Memory
With an internal memory of only 4 gigabytes, the 400 G3 MT has a fairly small internal memory compared to most of the other similar spec computers that have been available for around the same time as the 400 G3 MT. Medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as the 400 G3 MT have internal memory of between 2GB and 32GB, and the average internal memory is 8.1GB.
We compared all the other 4GB memory desktop computers to this PC and we think the DELL OptiPlex 3040 ($552.08), and the Acer Aspire X3-710 which is cheaper is also worth considering.
Very Small Hard Drive Capacity
The average hard drive capacity of similar spec desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as the 400 G3 MT is 940GB. The 400 G3 MT has one of the smaller hard drive capacity (only 500 gigabytes) amongst similar spec PCs of this age.
Alternative 500GB hard drive capacity personal computers currently available which you might also want to look at include cheaper desktop computers such as the M700, or the M700 ($639.95) both from Lenovo.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The HP 400 G3 MT has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as it. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this PC.
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This PC supports a 10|100|1000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN data rate, which is the most commonly supported Ethernet LAN data rate on similar spec desktop computers that were released in the last year.
+1 More reason against
3 Other reasons to consider the HP 400 G3 MT
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.2 gigahertz, the 400 G3 MT has a pretty average processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were launched in the last year.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3.2GHz processor clock speed personal computers currently available including cheaper personal computers such as the OptiPlex 3040 ($625.81), or the OptiPlex 3040 ($595.21) both from DELL.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the 400 G3 MT has a pretty standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 400 G3 MT.
We compared this computer to all the other 500GB total storage capacity desktop computers and we think the OptiPlex 3040 ($552.08), and the OptiPlex 3040 ($595.21) both from DELL which is cheaper is also worth considering.
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on desktop computers that were launched 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.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other HDD computers currently available including cheaper PCs such as the Acer Veriton X2640G.
PCs with a faster storage speed that might also be worth considering include the 400 G3 (SSD and cheaper), or the 600 G2 (SSD and cheaper) both from HP.
