HP has good average reviews for its medium processor core computers as well as across its entire PC range compared to other brands.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on comparable spec personal computers that were launched more than a year ago.
Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of comparable spec desktop computers that have been available for a similar time to the ProDesk 600 G1 is 1,100MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 700MHz to 1,300MHz. At 1,200 megahertz, the ProDesk 600 G1 has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other computers that are a comparable age to the ProDesk 600 G1.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
At 3.6 gigahertz, the ProDesk 600 G1 has a fairly fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and type. The slowest processor clock speed of PCs that were released one year ago is 1.3GHz and the fastest is 4GHz.
There are a number of other 3.6GHz processor clock speed personal computers currently available which you might also want to look at including cheaper personal computers such as the HP EliteDesk 800 G1.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on desktop computers of this spec and age.
Three PCI Express X1 Slots
Most of the other medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the ProDesk 600 G1 only have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots, however the HP ProDesk 600 G1 has three PCI Express x1 slots.
+8 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on personal computers that came out more than a year ago.
Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
With a maximum turbo frequency of 4 gigahertz, the ProDesk 600 G1 has a quite fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other PCs of this age and spec. Medium processor core computers that were released one year ago have maximum turbo frequencies of between 1.8GHz and 4.4GHz.
The HP ProDesk 600 G1 is a two DisplayPort desktop computer.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The HP ProDesk 600 G1 is a six USB 2.0 port PC. Most of the other PCs of this spec and age have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
The processor caches of medium processor core computers that were released more than a year ago range from 2MB to 10MB. At 8 megabytes, the ProDesk 600 G1 has a fairly big processor cache compared to most of the other computers of this spec and age.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the HP ProDesk 600 G1 is more than most desktop computers of this spec and age. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on computers of this age and type.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that are a similar age to it.
2 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on desktop computers of this age and type. 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.
Desktop computers with a faster storage speed that might be worth looking at include the 800 G2 ($1,026.36) (SSD), or the EliteDesk 800 G1 (SSD) both from HP or the Fujitsu D556 (SSD).
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on medium processor core computers that were launched more than a year ago.
4 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 600 G1
Released Over a Year Ago
This computer was released over a year ago.
Average Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 600 G1 has a fairly standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec computers that were released more than a year ago.
We compared all the other 500GB total storage capacity desktop computers to this desktop computer and we think cheaper computers such as the 8300 SFF, and the EliteDesk 800 G1 both from HP is also worth considering.
If this computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the DELL OptiPlex 7010 (1TB), or the Acer Aspire XC-605 (1TB) which is also cheaper.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the ProDesk 600 G1 has a pretty average hard drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the ProDesk 600 G1.
We compared this PC to all the other 500GB hard drive capacity personal computers and we think the 8300 SFF, and the EliteDesk 800 G1 both from HP which is cheaper is also worth considering.
The ProDesk 600 G1 has a pretty standard internal memory (4 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers of this type and age.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 4GB memory desktop computers currently available including cheaper computers such as the 8300 SFF, or the EliteDesk 800 G1 both from HP or the Lenovo M93p SFF.
If this computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the DELL 270 (6GB and cheaper).
