This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many PCs of a similar spec and age to it.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This desktop computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most frequently found EPEAT compliance on comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to it.
The HP G1 is a two DisplayPort PC. Most of the other desktop computers of this spec and age only have one DisplayPort.
Four USB 3.0 Ports
The HP G1 is a four USB 3.0 port personal computer. Most of the other few processor core PCs that came out more than two years ago have between one and five USB 3.0 ports.
Quite Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
With a maximum turbo frequency of 3.6 gigahertz, the HP G1 has a fairly fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other computers of a comparable age and type to the G1. The average maximum turbo frequency of few processor core PCs that are a similar age to the G1 is 3.2GHz.
DDR3-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This desktop computer has a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type, which is the most commonly found internal memory type on personal computers of a similar type and age to it.
Four Processor Threads
The HP G1 is a four processor thread personal computer.
Quite Big Processor Cache
With a processor cache of 4 megabytes, the HP G1 has a quite big processor cache compared to most of the other personal computers of this spec and age. The smallest processor cache of few processor core PCs that have been around for around the same time as the G1 is 0.51MB, the biggest is 6MB, and the average processor cache is 2.9MB.
The lightest comparable spec computer that came out around the same time as the G1 is 600g heavy and the heaviest is 14kg. With a weight of only 1.3 kilograms, the HP G1 is one of the lighter comparable spec personal computers that were launched around the same time as the G1 amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age.
At only 175 millimeters, the HP G1 is quite shallow compared to most of the other computers of a comparable type and age to the G1. Across all the desktop computers of this age and spec the depths range from 33mm to 460mm, and the average depth is 290mm.
When compared to other few processor core PCs that are a comparable age to the G1, the width of the HP G1 of only 3.4 millimeters is one of the narrowest. Desktop computers that were released more than two years ago have widths of between 3.4mm and 390mm, and the average width is 170mm.
4 Reasons Against
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
At only 200 megahertz, the HP G1 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that were launched around the same time as the G1. Across all the desktop computers that came out around the same time as the G1 the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 200MHz to 800MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 360MHz.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The HP G1 has an HDD storage medium which is faster than most computers that have been on the market for a similar time to it. Most computers that were released more than two years ago have a Fusion Drive storage medium. 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.
This computer's storage speed (HDD) is in fact the worst storage speed across all desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the G1.
The best storage speed across similar types of computer is SSD.
Quite Small Solid-State Drive Capacity
The smallest solid-state drive capacity of similar spec desktop computers that came out around the same time as the G1 is 8GB, the biggest is 260GB, and the average solid-state drive capacity is 90GB. The HP G1 has a quite small solid-state drive capacity (only 8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other computers that were released more than two years ago.
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
The HP G1 is a two USB 2.0 port desktop computer.
