Medium processor core computers manufactured by HP have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all PCs (not just medium processor core computers) and found that HP also has good reviews across its entire range.
Only Released Five Months Ago
This HP PC has only been on the market for five months.
Eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The HP 800 G2 is a eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port PC.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on new medium processor core computers.
SSD Storage Medium
The HP 800 G2 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most desktop computers that came out around the same time as it. Most new comparable spec PCs 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.
An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage speed across all medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as the 800 G2.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed amongst comparable types of computer.
We compared all the other SSD personal computers to this computer and we think cheaper computers such as the Z240 SFF, and the 240 SFF both from HP or the Acer Veriton X2640G is also worth considering.
Supports One Case Placement
The number of placements supported by the HP 800 G2 is more than most computers that have been around for around the same time as it. The most commonly 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 personal computer.
+6 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on comparable spec personal computers that have been around for the last year.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This personal computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is typical of many new PCs.
Has One Memory Slot
The HP 800 G2 has a greater number of memory slots than most latest personal computers. This HP PC has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the 800 G2.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many desktop computers that came out around the same time as it.
The HP 800 G2 is one of the shorter medium processor core computers that were released in the last year (only 100 millimeters) amongst medium processor core computers of this age. The heights of comparable spec computers that came out around the same time as the 800 G2 range from 10mm to 530mm, and the average height is 300mm.
4 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The smallest total storage capacity of comparable spec computers that have been on the market for the last year is 32GB and the biggest is 3.5TB. The HP 800 G2 has a quite small total storage capacity (only 256 gigabytes) compared to most of the other latest medium processor core computers.
Alternative 256GB total storage capacity PCs currently available that you might also want to consider include cheaper desktop computers such as the DELL T3620.
If this personal computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the 240 MT (1TB), or the 400 G3 (1TB) both from HP or the DELL 7040m (500GB) which is also cheaper.
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This computer supports a 10|100|1000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN data rate, which is the most frequently supported Ethernet LAN data rate on recently released comparable spec desktop computers.
Quite Small Processor Cache
The processor caches of similar spec desktop computers that came out around the same time as the 800 G2 range from 2MB to 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.8MB. The HP 800 G2 has one of the smaller processor caches (only 6 megabytes) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
Only Four Processor Threads
Most new medium processor core computers have between four and seven processor threads, including the HP 800 G2 which has four processor threads.

2 Other reasons to consider the HP 800 G2
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.2 gigahertz, the HP 800 G2 has a relatively typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other new medium processor core computers.
If this computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the 400 G3 (3.4GHz and cheaper), the 240 MT (3.4GHz and cheaper), or the 750-274na (3.4GHz and cheaper) all from HP.
Average Internal Memory
The HP 800 G2 has a pretty typical internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other desktop computers that were launched in the last 12 months.
We compared this personal computer to all the other 8GB memory computers and we think cheaper desktop computers such as the Acer Predator G3-710, and the Lenovo S500 SFF is also worth considering.
If this HP computer internal memory is too small for you then you might also want to look at the HP 750-274na (16GB) which is also cheaper.
My first problem was it did not recognise the keyboard, then I was surprised that it did not have Wi-Fi ? or so I thought ? so after finding an Ethernet cable I was relieved to find that I could... Read more…
