HP medium processor core PCs have good reviews on average and across all computers HP is one of the superior brands.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on latest comparable spec desktop computers.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on medium processor core PCs that have been on the market for the last year.
Three PCI Express X1 Slots
Most of the other new medium processor core PCs only have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots, however the ProDesk 600 SFF has three PCI Express x1 slots.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
Most comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to the ProDesk 600 SFF have between one and seven USB 2.0 ports, including the ProDesk 600 SFF which has six USB 2.0 ports.
Has One Memory Slot
The ProDesk 600 SFF has a greater number of memory slots than most similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to it. This personal computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on medium processor core PCs that are a comparable age to the ProDesk 600 SFF.
+3 More reasons for
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 recently released similar spec PCs.
At only 100 millimeters, the HP ProDesk 600 SFF is fairly short compared to most of the other medium processor core PCs that were released in the last 12 months. The heights of recently released medium processor core PCs range from 10mm to 560mm, and the average height is 280mm.
6 Reasons Against
Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor
The ProDesk 600 SFF has a quite slow max memory bandwidth supported processor (only 25.6 gigabytes per second) compared to most of the other medium processor core PCs that are a comparable age to the ProDesk 600 SFF. Across all the medium processor core PCs that were launched around the same time as the ProDesk 600 SFF the max memory bandwidth supported processor range from 10GB/s to 77GB/s.
Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
Medium processor core PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the ProDesk 600 SFF have max internal memory supported processors of between 2GB and 1.6TB. The ProDesk 600 SFF has a quite small max internal memory supported processor (only 32 gigabytes) compared to most of the other recently released medium processor core PCs.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many PCs that were launched around the same time as it.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
Medium processor core PCs that have been around for around the same time as the ProDesk 600 SFF have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 64GB. With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of only 1.024 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 600 SFF has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories amongst personal computers of this age.
+3 More reasons against
Only DDR3-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
The HP ProDesk 600 SFF has a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than the DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type found on most recently released medium processor core PCs.
A DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type is in fact the worst internal memory type across all medium processor core PCs that have been around for a similar time to the ProDesk 600 SFF.
A DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type is the best internal memory type across similar types of personal computer.
Very Low System Bus Data Transfer Rate
At only 5 Gigatransfers per second, the ProDesk 600 SFF has a quite low system bus data transfer rate compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to the ProDesk 600 SFF. The lowest system bus data transfer rate of medium processor core PCs that have been available for a similar time to the ProDesk 600 SFF is 5GT/s and the highest is 8GT/s.
6 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 600 SFF
Released Ten Months Ago
HP released the ProDesk 600 SFF ten months ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.3 gigahertz, the ProDesk 600 SFF has a pretty standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that were launched in the last year.
If you are looking for a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the EliteDesk 800 G1 SFF[pl_2937627_price] (3.4GHz), or the 550-170na[pl_3747342_price] (3.4GHz) both from HP or the DELL 3650[plb_3450642_price] (3.4GHz).
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the ProDesk 600 SFF has a pretty standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other latest computers.
If this personal computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the Acer Aspire X3-710[plb_3359054_price] (1TB and cheaper), or the HP 400 G3[plb_3784762_price] (1TB and cheaper).
+4 Other reasons
Average Hard Drive Capacity
With a hard drive capacity of 500 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 600 SFF has a relatively typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that were released around the same time as the ProDesk 600 SFF.
Desktop computers with a bigger hard drive capacity that might be worth considering include the Acer Aspire X3-710[plb_3359054_price] (1TB), or the HP 400 G3[plb_3784762_price] (1TB) which is also cheaper.
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the ProDesk 600 SFF has a relatively typical internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core PCs that were released in the last 12 months.
If this personal computer internal memory is too small for you then you might want to look at the DELL OptiPlex 9020[plb_2663205_price] (8GB) which is also cheaper.
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many new medium processor core PCs. 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 personal computers and we think the HP 550-254na[plb_3730369_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If the storage speed of this personal computer is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the HP ProDesk 400 G3 SFF[plb_3187993_price] (SSD and cheaper).
