At only 100 millimeters, the HP ProDesk 600 SFF is quite short compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as the ProDesk 600 SFF. The shortest medium processor core computer that has been around for a comparable time to the ProDesk 600 SFF is 9.8mm high and the tallest is 560mm.
8 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many desktop computers of this type and age. 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.
With an internal memory of only 4 gigabytes, the ProDesk 600 SFF has one of the smaller internal memory amongst computers of this age. 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 7.8GB.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 4GB memory PCs currently available including the Fujitsu Esprimo P420, or the HP 8300 SFF which is cheaper.
If you want a personal computer with a bigger internal memory then you might want to consider the EliteDesk 800 G1 ($485.71) (8GB), or the 400 G2.5 SFF (8GB) both from HP or the DELL 270 (6GB).
Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity
At only 500 gigabytes, the ProDesk 600 SFF has a quite small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and type. Similar spec computers that have been around for a comparable time to the ProDesk 600 SFF have hard drive capacity of between 1GB and 3TB.
Other 500GB hard drive capacity PCs currently available which you might also want to consider include cheaper personal computers such as the Fujitsu Esprimo P420.
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 similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
+5 More reasons against
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of only 500 gigabytes, the ProDesk 600 SFF has one of the smaller total storage capacity amongst medium processor core computers of this age. The average total storage capacity of medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the ProDesk 600 SFF is 770GB.
Alternative 500GB total storage capacity desktop computers currently available that you might also want to consider include the Fujitsu Esprimo P420, or the HP 8300 SFF which is cheaper.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The ProDesk 600 SFF has a quite small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory (only 1.024 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the ProDesk 600 SFF. Computers of a comparable type and age to the ProDesk 600 SFF have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 64GB.
Only Four Processor Threads
The ProDesk 600 SFF is a four processor thread computer.
Only One PCI Express X16 Slot
The ProDesk 600 SFF is a one PCI Express x16 slot PC. Most of the other medium processor core computers that came out more than a year ago have one PCI Express x16 slot.
