I have this computer. Did they yank the RX580 that’s stock on these and replaced them with a slower RX550, or is this a typo in the specs?
With that said, there are two upgrades I suggest: Replace the hard drive with a SSD and add more ram. A M.2 NVMe made a world of difference and out of the stock 8 GB, only 6 is usable because the 2400G’s APU.
So you recommend this computer as long as you replace the processor, replace the hard drive, and add RAM. Helpful review.
Might I suggest also changing the motherboard and the OS?
So do you want more RAM or not?!?
Probably wouldn’t hurt to get a better power supply. Maybe get a different case with a built-in screen that you could fold up and take with you like a laptop…
Actually, just get a chromebook.
The processor itself is fine; having a sole hard drive in a computer that’s marketed as a gaming computer isn’t.
The 8 GB is a single stick, at least, so it’s not “wasted” like it would’ve been if it was 4+4; just add a single 8 to upgrade to 16.
Stock is 400w, 80 PLUS Platinum. Being a HP, though, it is proprietary.
Are we missing anything else which should be replaced?
More RAM it is.
You are correct, sir. There was a typo from the vendor. We’ve updated the specs to the RX 580, 4GB GPU.
I bought this same model # new from Costco just last week, $550 with extended 3 year warranty. It has the Ryzen 5 1400 processor, 16GB of RAM, but the RX550 graphics card. So basically the same processor, an extra 8GB RAM card, with a lower graphics card.
Different generation, different performance. On the Passmark:
Ryzen 5 1400 scores a 8369.
Ryzen 5 2400g scores a 9314.
