7 Reasons Against
Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed
Across all the comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for a similar time to the EliteDesk 800 G2 the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz. With a processor clock speed of only 2.5 gigahertz, the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 has one of the slower processor clock speeds amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
Very Small Internal Memory
Medium processor core computers that were launched in the last 12 months have internal memory of between 2GB and 32GB. At only 4 gigabytes, the EliteDesk 800 G2 has a fairly small internal memory compared to most of the other desktop computers that are a similar age to the EliteDesk 800 G2.
PCs with a bigger internal memory that might also be worth looking at include the 240 SFF (8GB), the 240 MT (8GB), or the 600 G2 ($1,410.00) (8GB) all from HP.
Very Small Hard Drive Capacity
The EliteDesk 800 G2 has one of the smaller hard drive capacity (only 500 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core computers of this age. Latest comparable spec PCs have hard drive capacity of between 120GB and 3TB.
Personal computers with a bigger hard drive capacity that might be worth considering include the Precision T1700 (1TB), or the Precision T3610 (1TB) both from DELL.
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 medium processor core computers that came out in the last 12 months.
+4 More reasons against
Only One DisplayPort
The EliteDesk 800 G2 is a one DisplayPort computer. Most of the other recently released medium processor core computers have between one and three DisplayPorts.
Only One PCI Express X1 Slot
Most desktop computers that came out around the same time as the EliteDesk 800 G2 have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots, including the EliteDesk 800 G2 which has one PCI Express x1 slot.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
The EliteDesk 800 G2 has one of the slower maximum turbo frequencies (only 3.1 gigahertz) amongst PCs of this age. The average maximum turbo frequency of recently released comparable spec computers is 3.6GHz, and the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.2GHz.
3 Other reasons to consider the HP EliteDesk 800 G2
Released Eleven Months Ago
It was eleven months ago when this computer was released.
Average Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 has a relatively typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the EliteDesk 800 G2.
If you would prefer a personal computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the Z240 ($1,455.50) (512GB), the Z240 ($2,360.28) (512GB), or the Elite Slice (512GB) all from HP.
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as it. 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.
If the storage speed of this desktop computer is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the 800 G2 SFF ($1,028.26) (SSD), or the 600 G2 Mini (SSD) both from HP.
