7 Reasons For

Good Brand

We calculated the average ratings for all HP computers and also specifically for HP few processor core personal computers and found that in both cases HP had good ratings.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many few processor core personal computers that have been on the market for the last year.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The Chromebox has a faster storage speed than most new comparable spec computers. This personal computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most recently released few processor core personal computers have an HDD storage medium. 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.

This PC's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed amongst all similar spec PCs that came out around the same time as the Chromebox.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed amongst comparable types of PC.

Supports Three Compatible Memory Cards

The HP Chromebox has a greater number of compatible memory card than most recently released few processor core personal computers. This desktop computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most frequently supported compatible memory card supported by latest few processor core personal computers. The compatible memory cards "SDHC" and "SDXC" are also supported by this HP personal computer.

Chart Edit

Very Short

The heights of few processor core personal computers that were released in the last year range from 33mm to 500mm. At only 39 millimeters, the Chromebox is fairly short compared to most of the other newly released desktop computers.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

At only 124 millimeters, the Chromebox is quite shallow compared to most of the other new comparable spec personal computers. The depths of recently released few processor core personal computers range from 34mm to 600mm.

Chart Edit

Light

The Chromebox is one of the lighter recently released few processor core personal computers (only 630 grams) amongst personal computers of this age. The lightest new few processor core computer is 530g heavy and the heaviest is 15kg.

14 Reasons Against

Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

The smallest max internal memory supported processor of latest few processor core personal computers is 8GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 41GB. The Chromebox has a fairly small max internal memory supported processor (only 16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other few processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the Chromebox.

Chart Edit

Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

The Chromebox has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency (only 200 megahertz) compared to most of the other few processor core personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the Chromebox. Across all the desktop computers that were released around the same time as the Chromebox the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 100MHz to 690MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 330MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 1,000 megahertz, the Chromebox has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other desktop computers that came out around the same time as the Chromebox. The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of comparable spec PCs that have been available for around the same time as the Chromebox is 790MHz and the fastest is 1,200MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Total Storage Capacity

Across all the few processor core personal computers that were launched in the last 12 months the total storage capacity range from 16GB to 1TB. The HP Chromebox has one of the smaller total storage capacity (only 16 gigabytes) amongst few processor core personal computers of this age.

If you would prefer a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the OptiPlex 3040[pl_3242114_price] (128GB), or the OptiPlex 3040[pl_3361212_price] (128GB) both from DELL.
