- HP declared the Chromebox G2, the observe-up to 2014’ Chromebook
- The Chromebox G2 can be upgraded to Intel’ most up-to-date Core i7 and 16 GB of RAM
- The Chromebox G2 will be out there in April
Just after currently unveiling a pair of Chromebooks, HP isn’ rather done with Google‘ Chrome OS, as the organization introduced the sequel to 2014’ Chromebox, the Chromebox G2.
The Chromebox G2’ exterior is relatively unassuming, and we wouldn’ blame you if you perplexed it with the Apple Television. That being stated, the illusion falls apart when you locate the two USB 2. ports, a few USB 3. ports, a USB Type-C port, headphone jack (oh my!), HDMI port, Ethernet port, and SD card reader.
The real tale is what’ below the hood — when the base configuration functions Intel’ dual-core Celeron 3865U, you can phase up to possibly the seventh-era Core i5-7300U or the eighth-era Core i7-8650U. Even far better, many thanks to the two memory slots, you can have up to 16 GB of RAM.
Inner storage selections are limited — you can only pick between 32 GB and 64 GB of storage — even though the two options get there in speedy M.2 SSDs.
Is equipping the Chromebox G2 with the most up-to-date Core i7 processor, 16 GB of RAM, and a 64 GB M.2 SSD a little bit overkill? It guaranteed is. Chrome OS doesn’ will need this sort of potent internals to run properly. At the identical time, HP created the point for the classroom, so it would make sense to have these choices.
Simply because of that, we aren’ confident no matter whether the masses can purchase the Chromebox G2. We don’ even know how a lot the equipment starts off at. Nonetheless, we’ sure correct pricing can be figured out possibly right with HP or an authorized reseller.
HP’ Chromebox G2 will be readily available someday in April, nevertheless, we hope to see it for the duration of CES 2018, so continue to be tuned for more information and facts as we get it.
