8 Reasons For

HP Personal Computers Have Good Reviews

We checked 242 expert and owner reviews for HP computers and found that on average HP has good reviews compared to other brands. We also found that HP has good reviews specifically within its few processor core computers range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many few processor core computers that were released in the last 12 months.

Chart Edit

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

The Chromebox is a four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port personal computer. Most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been available for the last year have between one and five USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The Chromebox has a faster storage speed than most few processor core computers that were released in the last 12 months. This PC has an SSD storage medium, whereas most few processor core computers that are a similar age to it 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.

An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage speed across all few processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Chromebox.

Across comparable types of PC the worst storage speed is HDD.

Supports Three Compatible Memory Cards

The Chromebox has a greater number of compatible memory card than most comparable spec personal computers that have been available for a similar time to it. This HP personal computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most frequently supported compatible memory card supported by new few processor core computers. The compatible memory cards "SDHC" and "SDXC" are also supported by this computer.

Chart Edit

Very Short

The Chromebox is quite short (only 39 millimeters) compared to most of the other recently released personal computers. The average height of recently released similar spec desktop computers is 230mm.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

With a depth of only 124 millimeters, the HP Chromebox is fairly shallow compared to most of the other desktop computers that were launched in the last 12 months. Few processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the Chromebox have depths of between 83mm and 440mm.

Chart Edit

Light

The HP Chromebox is one of the lighter personal computers that were launched around the same time as the Chromebox (only 630 grams) amongst few processor core computers of this age. The lightest comparable spec personal computer that has been around for around the same time as the Chromebox is 530g heavy and the heaviest is 15kg.

Chart Edit

12 Reasons Against

Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

The average max internal memory supported processor of personal computers that have been around for the last year is 42GB. 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.

Chart Edit

Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

At only 200 megahertz, the HP Chromebox has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other new few processor core computers. The on-board graphics adapter base frequencies of few processor core computers that are a similar age to the Chromebox range from 100MHz to 690MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 320MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Chromebox is 1,000MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 1,000 megahertz, the HP Chromebox has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Chromebox.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Total Storage Capacity

With a total storage capacity of only 16 gigabytes, the Chromebox has a very small total storage capacity compared to most of the other few processor core computers that came out around the same time as the Chromebox. The average total storage capacity of newly released few processor core computers is 580GB, and the total storage capacity range from 16GB to 1TB.

If you would prefer a personal computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to look at the DELL OptiPlex 3040 (128GB), or the HP 400 G3 SFF (128GB).

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

When compared to other comparable spec personal computers that were launched around the same time as the Chromebox that we have assessed the processor clock speed of, the Chromebox's processor clock speed of only 1.4 gigahertz is one of the slowest. Comparable spec PCs that were launched around the same time as the Chromebox have processor clock speeds of between 1GHz and 3.7GHz.

If you want a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the HP 260 G1 (1.9GHz) which also has a higher rating.

Very Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

The Chromebox has one of the slower max memory bandwidth supported processor (only 25.6 gigabytes per second) amongst few processor core computers of this age. The max memory bandwidth supported processor of desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Chromebox range from 21GB/s to 35GB/s.

Chart Edit

Very Small Solid-State Drive Capacity

With a solid-state drive capacity of only 16 gigabytes, the Chromebox has one of the smaller solid-state drive capacities amongst few processor core computers of this age. The average solid-state drive capacity of comparable spec computers that were released in the last 12 months is 110GB, and the solid-state drive capacities range from 16GB to 260GB.

Chart Edit

Only Two Processor Threads

The HP Chromebox is a two processor thread PC. Most of the other recently released PCs have between two and three processor threads.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Processor Cache

The smallest processor cache of few processor core computers that have been available for the last year is 1MB, the biggest is 4MB, and the average processor cache is 2.9MB. With a processor cache of only 2 megabytes, the Chromebox has a fairly small processor cache compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the Chromebox.

Chart Edit

Only Has One Memory Slot

The number of memory slots found on the Chromebox is more than most recently released few processor core computers. The most frequently found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this HP computer. The memory slots 1x SO-DIMM are also found on this HP PC.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory

Few processor core computers that came out in the last year have maximum internal memory of between 4GB and 64GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 19GB. The Chromebox has one of the smaller maximum internal memory (only 8 gigabytes) amongst few processor core computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Low System Bus Data Transfer Rate

The average system bus data transfer rate of new few processor core computers is 6.5GT/s. When compared to other similar spec personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Chromebox that we have checked, the Chromebox's system bus data transfer rate of only 5 Gigatransfers per second is one of the lowest.

2 Other reasons to consider the HP Chromebox

Released Eleven Months Ago

This few processor core PC was released eleven months ago.

Average Internal Memory

The HP Chromebox has a relatively typical internal memory (4 gigabytes) compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that were launched around the same time as the Chromebox.

If this desktop computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the Ideacentre 300 (8GB), or the M700 (8GB) both from Lenovo or the HP Chromebox (8GB).
