We checked 242 expert and owner reviews for HP desktop computers and found that on average HP has good reviews. We also found that HP has good reviews specifically for its few processor core computers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many few processor core computers that have been on the market for a similar time to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many few processor core computers that are a comparable age to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on few processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This PC has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many personal computers of a comparable age and type to it.
Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory
The smallest maximum internal memory of few processor core computers that are a comparable age to the ProDesk 400 G1 is 4GB and the biggest is 33GB. The ProDesk 400 G1 has a quite big maximum internal memory (32,768 megabytes) compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1.
+3 More reasons for
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the ProDesk 400 G1 is more than most personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to it. The most commonly found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this PC. The memory slots 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this computer.
The shortest comparable spec PC that is a similar age to the ProDesk 400 G1 is 27mm high and the tallest is 500mm. With a height of only 34 millimeters, the HP ProDesk 400 G1 is one of the shorter few processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1 amongst few processor core computers of this age.
2 Reasons Against
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
Across all the PCs of a comparable type and age to the ProDesk 400 G1 the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 100MHz to 690MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 300MHz. The ProDesk 400 G1 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency (only 200 megahertz) compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that came out around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on few processor core computers that were released around the same time as it. 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 PC to all the other HDD PCs and we think a cheaper desktop computer such as the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF or you might consider a higher scoring desktop computer such as the Acer Revo One RL85 are also worth considering.
With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the HP ProDesk 400 G1 has a fairly standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other PCs that were launched around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 500GB total storage capacity computers currently available including cheaper desktop computers such as the HP EliteDesk 800 G1, or the Acer Aspire XC-705.
If you want a personal computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to consider the Acer Aspire XC-705 (1TB and cheaper), or the Asus VM62 ($458.07) (1TB and cheaper).
+3 Other reasons
Average Hard Drive Capacity
The ProDesk 400 G1 has a pretty standard hard drive capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other few processor core computers that were released more than a year ago.
There are a number of alternative 500GB hard drive capacity computers currently available which you might also want to consider including cheaper computers such as the HP EliteDesk 800 G1, or the Acer Aspire XC-705.
If this HP desktop computer hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Acer Aspire XC-705 (1TB) which is also cheaper.
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 4 gigabytes, the ProDesk 400 G1 has a fairly standard internal memory compared to most of the other few processor core computers that came out around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G1.
It may also be worth considering one of the other 4GB memory personal computers currently available including the Asus Chromebox, or the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 which is cheaper.
If you would prefer a bigger internal memory then you might also want to look at the ThinkCentre E73 SFF (8GB and cheaper), or the H30 (8GB and cheaper) both from Lenovo.
