HP ProDesk 600 G3 - i3-7100, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD (it's like a super HP 290) - $199

HP Prodesk 600 G3 MT Desktop Used Grade B/C, i3-7100, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD Win 10

It’s 7th-gen, but the i3-7100 stacks up really well compared to the G4900. The ProDesk 600 G3 MT also has more features such as dual Displayport and USB-C. It’s also a little larger, offering 4 low profile expansion slots instead of just two.

The i3-7100 looks to be spec’d @51W TDP while the G4900 in our HP 290-p0043w is spec’d @51W TDP.

Does this mean that this desktop can also be expected to be as low power as the HP 290-p0043w ~10W idle power consumption (17W idle at BIOS, 40W Peak)?

If anyone already has this, come power measurements would really be appreciated

Is the motherboard pattern and psu connection proprietary or can I swap the innards into a S-1200 chassis?

(2) PCI Express x16 (v3.0); 1 wired as an x4

So that is better than the 290’s x16/x1, although x4 seems to be ideal for NIC or msata NVME adapters primarily.

It’s very proprietary.
