- HP declared the Chromebox G2, the stick to-up to 2014’s Chromebook
- The Chromebox G2 can be upgraded to Intel’s newest Main i7 and 16 GB of RAM
- The Chromebox G2 will be out there in April
Immediately after presently unveiling a pair of Chromebooks, HP isn’t rather finished with Google‘s Chrome OS, as the firm declared the sequel to 2014’s Chromebox, the Chromebox G2.
The Chromebox G2’s exterior is relatively unassuming, and we wouldn’t blame you if you baffled it with the Apple Tv set. That getting explained, the illusion falls aside when you location the two USB 2. ports, 3 USB 3. ports, a USB Kind-C port, headphone jack (oh my!), HDMI port, ethernet port, and SD card reader.
The serious story is what’s below the hood — whilst the foundation configuration attributes Intel’s twin-main Celeron 3865U, you can stage up to both the seventh-era Main i5-7300U or the eighth-era Main i7-8650U. Even improved, many thanks to the two memory slots, you can have up to 16 GB of RAM.
Internal storage solutions are limited — you can only choose involving 32 GB and 64 GB of storage — even though both solutions arrive in fast M.2 SSDs.
Is equipping the Chromebox G2 with the newest Main i7 processor, 16 GB of RAM, and a 64 GB M.2 SSD a little bit overkill? It absolutely sure is. Chrome OS doesn’t require this kind of effective internals to operate correctly. At the exact time, HP made the matter for the classroom, so it makes perception to have this kind of solutions.
For the reason that of that, we are not absolutely sure whether or not the masses can invest in the Chromebox G2. We don’t even know how a lot the device starts at. However, we’re absolutely sure actual pricing can be figured out both straight with HP or an licensed reseller.
HP’s Chromebox G2 will be out there someday in April, even though we hope to see it all through CES 2018 on the display flooring, so keep tuned for much more facts as we get it.
