Medium processor core computers built by HP have good reviews on average. 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.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many similar spec PCs that have been available for around the same time as it.
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 computers of a comparable type and age to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been around for a similar time to it.
Three PCI Express X1 Slots
The ProDesk 600 is a three PCI Express x1 slot desktop computer. Most of the other personal computers that are a comparable age to the ProDesk 600 only have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots.
+5 More reasons for
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The ProDesk 600 is a six USB 2.0 port desktop computer.
Three 3.5" Bays
Most PCs that are a comparable age to the ProDesk 600 have between one and eight 3.5" bays, including the HP ProDesk 600 which has three 3.5" bays.
Has One Memory Slot
The ProDesk 600 has a greater number of memory slots than most desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as it. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on PCs of this type and age.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that are a similar age to it.
9 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many similar spec PCs that have been around for a comparable 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.
If the storage speed of this medium processor core computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the Zotac ZBOX CA320 nano (SSD and higher rated).
Very Small Internal Memory
At only 4 gigabytes, the ProDesk 600 has a fairly small internal memory compared to most of the other personal computers that have been on the market for more than two years. The smallest internal memory of personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the ProDesk 600 is 2GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average internal memory is 8GB.
PCs with a bigger internal memory that might be worth considering include the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (8GB and higher rated).
Very Small Hard Drive Capacity
Across all the comparable spec desktop computers that came out around the same time as the ProDesk 600 the hard drive capacity range from 320GB to 2TB. The HP ProDesk 600 has one of the smaller hard drive capacity (only 500 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
Personal computers with a bigger hard drive capacity that might also be worth considering include the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (1TB) which also has a higher rating.
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
The average total storage capacity of medium processor core computers that were launched more than two years ago is 720GB. With a total storage capacity of only 500 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 600 has one of the smaller total storage capacity amongst personal computers of this age.
If this personal computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (1TB) which also has a higher rating.
+6 More reasons against
Only One 5.25" Bay
The ProDesk 600 is a one 5.25" bay computer. Most of the other computers of a comparable age and spec to the ProDesk 600 have between one and two 5.25" bays.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
Across all the desktop computers that came out more than two years ago the maximum on-board graphics adapter memories range from 1GB to 1.8GB. The HP ProDesk 600 has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories (only 1.024 gigabytes) amongst PCs of this age.
Quite Small Processor Cache
At only 6 megabytes, the ProDesk 600 has a quite small processor cache compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that are a similar age to the ProDesk 600. The average processor cache of comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to the ProDesk 600 is 6.7MB.
Only Four Processor Threads
The ProDesk 600 is a four processor thread personal computer. Most of the other personal computers of this spec and age have between four and seven processor threads.
Only One PCI Express X16 Slot
The ProDesk 600 is a one PCI Express x16 slot computer.
2 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 600
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when HP released the ProDesk 600.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.3 gigahertz, the ProDesk 600 has a relatively average processor clock speed compared to most of the other personal computers that have been on the market for more than two years.
