Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
At 1,150 megahertz, the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other desktop computers that were launched around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini. The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of new few processor core desktop computers range from 600MHz to 1,200MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for a similar time to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on few processor core desktop computers that came out in the last 12 months.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the HP ProDesk 400 G1 Mini is more than most new desktop computers. The most frequently found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this desktop computer. The memory slots 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this HP desktop computer.
+3 More reasons for
The average depth of new few processor core desktop computers is 280mm, and the depths range from 34mm to 600mm. At only 177 millimeters, the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini is quite shallow compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that are a comparable age to the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini.
The shortest desktop computer that has been around for the last year is 27mm high, the tallest is 500mm, and the average height is 230mm. The ProDesk 400 G1 Mini is one of the shorter similar spec computers that were launched around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini (only 34 millimeters) amongst similar spec desktop computers of this age.
3 Reasons Against
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
Few processor core desktop computers that came out around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini have on-board graphics adapter base frequencies of between 100MHz and 690MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 330MHz. The ProDesk 400 G1 Mini has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency (only 200 megahertz) compared to most of the other new desktop computers.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This personal computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on new few processor core desktop computers.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The ProDesk 400 G1 Mini has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories (only 1.7 gigabytes) amongst few processor core desktop computers of this age. The maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini range from 1GB to 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 3.7GB.
6 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 400 G1 Mini
Released Twelve Months Ago
It was twelve months ago when HP released the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini.
Average Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.1 gigahertz, the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini has a pretty standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other desktop computers that came out in the last year.
At 500 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini has a pretty typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other latest similar spec personal computers.
There are a number of alternative 500GB total storage capacity PCs currently available which you might want to consider including the Lenovo ThinkCentre M73 Tiny, or the Alienware Alpha ($375.00) which is cheaper.
If you are looking for a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the Lenovo 510s (1TB and higher rated) or the Acer Veriton X2640G (1TB and cheaper).
+4 Other reasons
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini has a fairly average hard drive capacity compared to most of the other few processor core desktop computers that were released around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini.
If you are looking for a PC with a bigger hard drive capacity then you might also want to look at the Lenovo 510s (1TB) which also has a higher rating.
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 400 G1 Mini has a pretty average internal memory compared to most of the other few processor core desktop computers that have been around for a comparable time to the ProDesk 400 G1 Mini.
If this desktop computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the Aspire XC-705 (6GB and cheaper), or the Aspire XC-705 (6GB and cheaper) both from Acer.
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many few processor core desktop computers that have been on the market for a similar time to 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.
Alternative HDD personal computers currently available that you might want to look at include cheaper computers such as the 3650, or the Inspiron 3847 both from DELL or the HP 280 G2 ($459.89).
If you want a personal computer with a faster storage speed then you might also want to consider the HP 400 G3 SFF (SSD and cheaper), or the DELL OptiPlex 3040 (SSD and cheaper).
