The ProDesk 600 G1 has a fairly fast processor clock speed (3.5 gigahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1.
Three PCI Express X1 Slots
The ProDesk 600 G1 has more PCI Express x1 slots than most of the medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1. Most of the comparable spec PCs that have been around for around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1 only have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots, however this personal computer has three PCI Express x1 slots.
+9 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on desktop computers of a similar age and spec to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many PCs that were released around the same time as it.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The HP ProDesk 600 G1 is a six USB 2.0 port PC.
The ProDesk 600 G1 is a two DisplayPort PC.
Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory
The maximum internal memory of medium processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1 range from 2GB to 260GB. With a maximum internal memory of 32 gigabytes, the ProDesk 600 G1 has a quite big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other similar spec computers that were released more than two years ago.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the HP ProDesk 600 G1 is more than most comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for more than two years. This HP PC has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on medium processor core computers that have been on the market for more than two years.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
The shortest medium processor core computer that has been on the market for a similar time to the ProDesk 600 G1 is 19mm high, the tallest is 560mm, and the average height is 280mm. The HP ProDesk 600 G1 is fairly short (only 100 millimeters) compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that came out more than two years ago.
6 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on medium processor core 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.
If the storage speed of this personal computer is too slow for you then you might want to look at the Zotac ZBOX CA320 nano (SSD and higher rated).
Quite Small Internal Memory
When compared to other desktop computers of a comparable type and age to the ProDesk 600 G1 that we have assessed, the HP ProDesk 600 G1's internal memory of only 4 gigabytes is one of the smallest. Across all the similar spec personal computers that were released more than two years ago the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB, and the average internal memory is 8GB.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The HP ProDesk 600 G1 has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories (only 1.024 gigabytes) amongst similar spec computers of this age. Personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the ProDesk 600 G1 have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 1.8GB.
Quite Small Processor Cache
The HP ProDesk 600 G1 has one of the smaller processor caches (only 6 megabytes) amongst similar spec PCs of this age. Comparable spec PCs that came out around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1 have processor caches of between 0.51MB and 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.7MB.
+3 More reasons against
Only Four Processor Threads
Most PCs of a similar age and type to the ProDesk 600 G1 have between four and seven processor threads, including the ProDesk 600 G1 which has four processor threads.
Only One PCI Express X16 Slot
The ProDesk 600 G1 is a one PCI Express x16 slot PC. Most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that have been available for more than two years have between one and two PCI Express x16 slots.
3 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 600 G1
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when HP released the ProDesk 600 G1.
Average Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the ProDesk 600 G1 has a fairly average total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the ProDesk 600 G1.
Personal computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth looking at include the Apple Mac Pro (512GB).
Average Hard Drive Capacity
With a hard drive capacity of 500 gigabytes, the ProDesk 600 G1 has a relatively average hard drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1.
If you would prefer a bigger hard drive capacity then you might want to look at the Z440 ($1,083.83) (1TB), or the Z640 ($1,629.73) (1TB) both from HP.
