13 Reasons For

HP Desktop Computers Have Good Reviews

On average HP few processor core computers have good ratings compared to other brands as do all personal computers produced by HP.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on few processor core computers that have been available for the last year.

Chart Edit

Four SATA III Connectors

The HP Chromebox has more SATA III connectors than most of the comparable spec computers that have been available for the last year. Most of the recently released few processor core computers only have between two and three SATA III connectors, however this personal computer has four SATA III connectors.

Chart Edit

Four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

The HP Chromebox is a four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port PC.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The Chromebox has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most few processor core computers that have been on the market for the last year. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.

An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage speed amongst all few processor core computers that were released in the last year.

Amongst comparable types of computer the worst storage speed is HDD.

There are a number of other SSD PCs currently available which you might also want to consider including cheaper PCs such as the 400 G3 MT[pl_3766819_price], or the 400 G2[pl_3768563_price] both from HP.

Very Big Internal Memory

When compared to other comparable spec desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as the Chromebox that we have assessed, the internal memory of the Chromebox of 8 gigabytes is one of the biggest. Across all the new few processor core computers the internal memory range from 2GB to 8GB.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 8GB memory personal computers currently available including the Alienware Alpha[plb_3087024_price], or the HP 400 G3 MT[plb_3766819_price] which is cheaper.

Supports Three Compatible Memory Cards

The number of compatible memory card supported by the Chromebox is more than most few processor core computers that are a similar age to it. This computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most commonly supported compatible memory card supported by few processor core computers that came out in the last 12 months. The compatible memory cards "SDHC" and "SDXC" are also supported by this desktop computer.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency

PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Chromebox have maximum turbo frequencies of between 2GHz and 3.6GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 2.6GHz. The Chromebox has a fairly fast maximum turbo frequency (3.3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other newly released comparable spec computers.

Chart Edit

Very Big Processor Cache

The smallest processor cache of recently released comparable spec computers is 1MB and the biggest is 4MB. The HP Chromebox has a very big processor cache (4 megabytes) compared to most of the other new few processor core computers.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The number of memory slots found on the Chromebox is more than most personal computers that have been available for around the same time as it. The most commonly found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this HP computer. The memory slots 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this personal computer.

Chart Edit

Very Short

Similar spec personal computers that came out in the last 12 months have heights of between 33mm and 500mm. With a height of only 39 millimeters, the HP Chromebox is fairly short compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Chromebox.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

The average depth of computers that have been available for around the same time as the Chromebox is 280mm. The Chromebox is fairly shallow (only 124 millimeters) compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the Chromebox.

Chart Edit

Light

The average weight of similar spec personal computers that were launched in the last 12 months is 4.8kg, and the weights range from 530g to 15kg. The HP Chromebox is one of the lighter few processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the Chromebox (only 630 grams) amongst personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

With a max internal memory supported processor of only 16 gigabytes, the Chromebox has one of the smaller max internal memory supported processors amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age. The smallest max internal memory supported processor of few processor core computers that were launched in the last year is 8GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 42GB.

Chart Edit

Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

Across all the computers that are a similar age to the Chromebox the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 100MHz to 690MHz. The HP Chromebox has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter base frequencies (only 200 megahertz) amongst few processor core computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Not Cheap

We think this desktop computer looks expensive compared to other recently released PCs. The price range of recently released PCs is from £190 to £790.

Quite Small Total Storage Capacity

The smallest total storage capacity of recently released few processor core computers is 16GB, the biggest is 1TB, and the average total storage capacity is 580GB. When compared to other PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Chromebox that we have checked, the Chromebox's total storage capacity of only 16 gigabytes is one of the smallest.

If you want a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to consider the 400 G3 MT[pl_3766819_price] (256GB), or the 400 G2[pl_3768563_price] (256GB) both from HP which is also cheaper.

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

With a processor clock speed of only 2.1 gigahertz, the HP Chromebox has one of the slower processor clock speeds amongst few processor core computers of this age. The processor clock speeds of desktop computers that came out in the last year range from 1GHz to 3.7GHz.

PCs with a faster processor clock speed that might be worth considering include the 400 G2[pl_3768563_price] (3.2GHz), or the 400 G3 MT[pl_3766819_price] (3.7GHz) both from HP which is also cheaper.

Very Slow Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

Across all the new desktop computers the memory clock speeds supported by processors range from 1,300MHz to 1,900MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor is 1,500MHz. The Chromebox has a quite slow memory clock speed supported by processor (only 1,333 megahertz) compared to most of the other few processor core computers that were released around the same time as the Chromebox.

Chart Edit

Very Small Solid-State Drive Capacity

Across all the latest few processor core computers the solid-state drive capacities range from 16GB to 260GB, and the average solid-state drive capacity is 110GB. With a solid-state drive capacity of only 16 gigabytes, the Chromebox has a fairly small solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other latest comparable spec desktop computers.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory

At only 8 gigabytes, the Chromebox has a fairly small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other new few processor core computers. Comparable spec desktop computers that were launched around the same time as the Chromebox have maximum internal memory of between 4GB and 64GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 19GB.

Chart Edit

Quite Low System Bus Data Transfer Rate

The average system bus data transfer rate of similar spec PCs that have been available for the last year is 6.5GT/s, and the system bus data transfer rates range from 5GT/s to 8GT/s. At only 5 Gigatransfers per second, the Chromebox has a fairly low system bus data transfer rate compared to most of the other few processor core computers that were released around the same time as the Chromebox.
