HP ProDesk 400 G3 Small Form Factor PC

 

Solid, well built unit. Compact unit but good fans and seems to run cool. I5-6500 gives umh as well as SSD - not a fast write speed bu still - good bye old hard drive. Like a rocket ship!

Time will tell, how good the HP build quality is good and if Intel Processors reliable. It's only the first date but signs are good.

HP ProDesk 400 G3 Small Form Factor PC

 

This is a great performer. The 256Gb SSD hard disk is extremely fast. Comes with 4Gb, I would have liked an 8Gb RAM option, but when it arrived I was incredibly impressed with the speed. I can always add extra RAM, but dont think I need to. It is...

This didnt bother me, but other users may wish to note, there is VGA, but no DVI or HDMI port.
