On average HP few processor core PCs have good ratings as do all desktop computers manufactured by HP.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on desktop computers that were released around the same time as it.
Fairly Big Internal Memory
The average internal memory of computers of this type and age is 5GB, and the internal memory range from 2GB to 16GB. At 8 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 600 G1 SFF has a quite big internal memory compared to most of the other PCs that were released one year ago.
Three PCI Express X1 Slots
The ProDesk 600 G1 SFF has more PCI Express x1 slots than most of the personal computers of a similar type and age to the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF. This personal computer is a three PCI Express x1 slot PC compared to most of the few processor core PCs that came out around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF which only have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on PCs of a similar age and type to it.
The HP ProDesk 600 G1 SFF is a two DisplayPort desktop computer.
+4 More reasons for
Very Big Maximum Internal Memory
The maximum internal memory of desktop computers of this age and spec range from 4GB to 32GB. The ProDesk 600 G1 SFF has one of the biggest maximum internal memory (32 gigabytes) amongst few processor core PCs of this age.
Has One Memory Slot
The HP ProDesk 600 G1 SFF has a greater number of memory slots than most desktop computers of this spec and age. The most commonly found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this computer. The memory slots 4x DIMM are also found on this HP desktop computer.
Very Big Processor Cache
Comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for a similar time to the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF have processor caches of between 1MB and 4MB, and the average processor cache is 2.9MB. With a processor cache of 4 megabytes, the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF has a very big processor cache compared to most of the other personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF.
3 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 more than a year. 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 you are looking for a desktop computer with a faster storage speed then you might want to look at the Acer Chromebox CXI ($324.99) (SSD and cheaper), or the HP Chromebox ($136.05) (SSD and cheaper).
Quite Small On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The average on-board graphics adapter memory of PCs of a comparable age and spec to the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF is 1.5GB. The ProDesk 600 G1 SFF has a fairly small on-board graphics adapter memory (only 1 gigabyte) compared to most of the other computers of a comparable spec and age to the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF.
At 7.6 kilograms, the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF is quite heavy compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that were launched around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF. Across all the similar spec desktop computers that are a comparable age to the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF the weights range from 140g to 16kg, and the average weight is 4.7kg.
4 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 600 G1 SFF
Released Over a Year Ago
HP released the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF over a year ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.5 gigahertz, the HP ProDesk 600 G1 SFF has a relatively standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable age and type to the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF.
If this computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the HP 280 G1 ($279.99) (3.7GHz), the Lenovo S500 SFF (3.7GHz), or the Fujitsu D556 (3.7GHz).
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF has a relatively average total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers of a similar spec and age to the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 500GB total storage capacity personal computers currently available including cheaper PCs such as the Fujitsu Esprimo P420.
If you would prefer a PC with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the Acer Revo One RL85 (2TB) which also has a higher rating.
+2 Other reasons
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF has a pretty typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that have been around for a similar time to the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF.
We compared all the other 500GB hard drive capacity personal computers to this computer and we think cheaper desktop computers such as the HP ProDesk 400 G1 ($279.99) is also worth considering.
If this desktop computer hard drive capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the Acer Revo One RL85 (2TB) which also has a higher rating.
