We calculated the average reviews for all HP desktop computers and also specifically for HP medium processor core computers and found that in both cases HP had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many computers of a similar spec and age to it.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This PC 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 are a similar age to it.
Three PCI Express X1 Slots
The ProDesk 600 SFF is a three PCI Express x1 slot desktop computer. Most of the other desktop computers that have been available for a comparable time to the ProDesk 600 SFF only have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on desktop computers of a similar type and age to it.
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 desktop computers that came out more than two years ago.
+5 More reasons for
Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory
The average maximum internal memory of computers that have been around for a similar time to the ProDesk 600 SFF is 30GB. The ProDesk 600 SFF has a quite big maximum internal memory (32 gigabytes) compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that were released more than two years ago.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the ProDesk 600 SFF is more than most computers of a similar age and spec to it. 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 desktop computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on desktop computers of this spec and age.
The heights of computers of a similar spec and age to the ProDesk 600 SFF range from 19mm to 560mm, and the average height is 280mm. At only 100 millimeters, the ProDesk 600 SFF is quite short compared to most of the other personal computers that were released more than two years ago.
9 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on medium processor core computers that came out more than two years ago. 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.
We compared this desktop computer to all the other HDD PCs and we think the DELL Precision T1700 SFF which is cheaper is also worth considering.
Medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as the ProDesk 600 SFF have internal memory of between 2GB and 64GB, and the average internal memory is 8GB. The ProDesk 600 SFF has a quite small internal memory (only 4 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable type and age to the ProDesk 600 SFF.
It may also be worth considering one of the other 4GB memory desktop computers currently available including the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 which is cheaper.
If you are looking for a computer with a bigger internal memory then you might want to consider the OptiPlex 9020 Micro (8GB and cheaper), or the OptiPlex 9020 ($475.00) (8GB and cheaper) both from DELL or the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 ($635.64) (8GB and cheaper).
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of computers of this age and type is 850MHz and the fastest is 1,300MHz. The ProDesk 600 SFF has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (only 1,150 megahertz) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity
Across all the desktop computers of this type and age the hard drive capacity range from 320GB to 2TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 800GB. At only 500 gigabytes, the ProDesk 600 SFF has a very small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released more than two years ago.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 500GB hard drive capacity personal computers currently available including the DELL Precision T1700 SFF which is cheaper.
+6 More reasons against
Quite Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
Across all the personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the ProDesk 600 SFF the maximum on-board graphics adapter memories range from 1GB to 1.8GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 1.5GB. The maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of the HP ProDesk 600 SFF of only 1.024 gigabytes is one of the smallest amongst medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the ProDesk 600 SFF.
Only One DisplayPort
The HP ProDesk 600 SFF is a one DisplayPort personal computer. Most of the other medium processor core computers that came out more than two years ago have between one and two DisplayPorts.
Quite Small Processor Cache
The ProDesk 600 SFF has one of the smaller processor caches (only 6 megabytes) amongst medium processor core computers of this age. The processor caches of personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the ProDesk 600 SFF range from 0.51MB to 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.7MB.
Only Four Processor Threads
The ProDesk 600 SFF is a four processor thread personal computer. Most of the other computers of this spec and age have between four and seven processor threads.
Only One PCI Express X16 Slot
The ProDesk 600 SFF is a one PCI Express x16 slot computer. Most of the other medium processor core 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 SFF
Released Over Two Years Ago
This desktop computer was released over two years ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The HP ProDesk 600 SFF has a fairly standard processor clock speed (3.3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable age and type to the ProDesk 600 SFF.
We compared all the other 3.3GHz processor clock speed desktop computers to this computer and we think the DELL OptiPlex 3020 ($609.99) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
Personal computers with a faster processor clock speed that might be worth considering include the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 ($350.00) (3.5GHz and cheaper).
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the ProDesk 600 SFF has a pretty standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to the ProDesk 600 SFF.
