PCs by Form Factor

The Form Factor of a PC is simply the size, shape and specification of the chassis and hardware components. At Bargain Hardware, we professionally refurbish enterprise-class business Desktop PCs of all form factors; from ultra small form factor - sometimes referred to as 'Mini' or 'Micro' - through to the larger Tower form factor machines, each with their own benefits and associated costs.

HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Desktop PC Series

Towers are the biggest Desktop PC form factor, with a height normally of 60cm (24") or more. They can accommodate more internal drive bays and have the highest capacity for PCI expansion. The best selling HP EliteDesk 800 G3 Tower supports 7th Gen Intel Core technology, is capable of taking up to 64GB DDR4 Unbuffered RAM, M.2 NVMe SSD and has 4 x PCIe expansion slots.

Small Form Factor is the most popular, medium sized form factor that we stock. They offer businesses and homes alike a good balance of expandability, performance and space-saving design. They usually have 2 or more PCI expansion slots and are capable of specifications which can power through many demanding office applications. The HP EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF (and indeed earlier and later generations) has long been an industry-leading office PC for its reliability and security features - at amazing value!

Ultra Small Form Factors (USFF) are the smallest category of Desktop PC. Commonly included with these are 'Mini' and 'Micro' PCs. They are the most discreet of office and home computers, and are often mounted to the back of a monitor to save desk space and reduce visible cabling. They mostly run on the same RAM and drive types as laptops, and many have a Wi-Fi card pre-fitted - but this does vary. Their capacity for expansion is lower than their larger counterparts, but are nevertheless capable of impressive specs. For a powerful, reliable and discreet business PC, the ProDesk 400 G3 Mini is a perfect choice - supporting 6th Gen Intel Core processors, up to 32GB RAM and super fast NVMe SSD storage.

All-in-One (AIO) PC's are designed to house every part of the PC in one compact and convenient location, the monitor. Some models, such as the Dell OptiPlex 7440 are available in Touchscreen and Non-Touchscreen versions. For ultimate sleek styling, they can also be wall-mounted (a compatible bracket is required), perfect for public or company spaces where neatness is a priority.
