We have seen other companies roll out a Chromebox from their respective stables, and here we are with computer manufacturer HP doing the same as well. The HP Chromebox might be small in stature, but it is big on performance, being a tiny desktop computer which has been specially designed in order to run Google’s Chrome operating system. HP has plans for not solely one, but a couple of such versions of the Chromebox.
One of the models will come with an Intel Celeron 2955U processor, while those who feel that they need something with a whole lot more processing muscle would not be able to go wrong with the Intel Core i7-4600U processor. HP themselves do seem to be pretty modest about the Chromebox range since announcing the product earlier in 2014 though.
As for the hardware specifications of the HP Chromebox, we can more or less expect it to arrive with (regardless of processor speed) 16GB of internal memory, up to 8GB RAM, an SDXC memory card reader, Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, WI-Fi support, a HDMI port and a DIsplayPort, and a quartet of USB 3.0 ports. It seems that the Celeron model will cost somewhere in the region of $200, while the Core i7 model will most probably start from $600 upward. [Product Manual]
