Medium processor core personal computers manufactured by HP have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all personal computers (not just medium processor core personal computers) and found that HP also has good ratings across its entire range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a similar time to it.
SSD Storage Medium
The ProDesk 400 G1 has a faster storage speed than most similar spec desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as it. This computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most similar spec personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to it 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 in fact the best storage speed amongst all desktop computers of a similar spec and age to the ProDesk 400 G1.
Amongst similar types of desktop computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many computers of this type and age.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many PCs of this spec and age.
The ProDesk 400 G1 is fairly shallow (only 177 millimeters) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago. The shallowest PC of a comparable spec and age to the ProDesk 400 G1 is 31mm deep, the deepest is 590mm, and the average depth is 350mm.
+3 More reasons for
The lightest PC of a similar type and age to the ProDesk 400 G1 is 38g heavy, the heaviest is 23kg, and the average weight is 7.7kg. The ProDesk 400 G1 is quite light (only 1.3 kilograms) compared to most of the other personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1.
Similar spec PCs that came out around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1 have heights of between 9.8mm and 560mm. When compared to other desktop computers that were released around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1 that we have checked, the height of the ProDesk 400 G1 of only 34 millimeters is one of the shortest.
10 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The ProDesk 400 G1 is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port computer.
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
Computers of a comparable age and spec to the ProDesk 400 G1 have total storage capacity of between 4GB and 3.6TB. At only 128 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 G1 has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1.
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
At only 2 gigahertz, the ProDesk 400 G1 has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other PCs that have been available for more than a year. The average processor clock speed of computers that have been around for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1 is 3.1GHz, and the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz.
Very Small Internal Memory
With an internal memory of only 4 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 G1 has a quite small internal memory compared to most of the other computers that have been available for more than a year. Personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1 have internal memory of between 2GB and 64GB.
+7 More reasons against
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This desktop computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than a year.
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
Most medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago have between one and eight USB 3.0 ports, including the HP ProDesk 400 G1 which has two USB 3.0 ports.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of PCs of a similar age and type to the ProDesk 400 G1 range from 1GB to 64GB. At only 1.024 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 G1 has a quite small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1.
Only One DisplayPort
Most PCs of this spec and age have between one and three DisplayPorts, including the HP ProDesk 400 G1 which has one DisplayPort.
Only Four Processor Threads
Most personal computers of a comparable age and type to the ProDesk 400 G1 have between four and seven processor threads, including the ProDesk 400 G1 which has four processor threads.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
Across all the PCs that are a similar age to the ProDesk 400 G1 the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz. With a maximum turbo frequency of only 3 gigahertz, the ProDesk 400 G1 has a fairly slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other desktop computers of this type and age.
