HP declared openly the Chromebox Enterprise G2, a desktop computer that rides the Chrome OS, yesterday as a fraction of its modern lineup of Chrome Enterprise commodities.
(The firm also revealed new Chromebooks made for industry customers a previous week.)
That should provide Dell with a bit more competition in the “Chromebooks but for enterprise” demand, and enable Google to convince businesses of Chrome OS’ ability.
The Chromebox Enterprise G2 possibly would not impress many lovers. There are two configurations – the first provides a dual-core Intel Celeron 3867U with Intel HD Graphics 610 and depends on a 65W external PSU; the next boasts a dual-core Intel Core i3-7130U along with Intel HD Graphics 620 that obliges a 90W external PSU. Both request 16GB of DDR4-2400 memory and either 32GB or 64GB storage through an M.2 SSD.
Giving a maximum of 64GB storage ability on a desktop would be weird on any other platform. But HP is virtually just wrapping equipment around the Chrome browser, so it can safely infer that anyone deeming the Chromebox Enterprise G2 is pleased to utilize cloud-based storage.
Most web apps do not require that much processing energy, either, so it is not like HP needed to utilize top-of-the-line CPUs.
The only aspect the Chromebox Enterprise G2 really desires is an abundance of connectivity choices.
That is why HP outfitted the gadget with two USB 3.0 Type-A ports, two USB 2.0 Type-A ports and one USB 3.0 Type-C port; one Gigabit Ethernet port; the Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265 for 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 support; and one 3.5mm audio jack. (Which could substantiate useful in an office.)
Anandtech reported that HP schedules to release the Chromebox Enterprise G2 in the U.S. sometime in November. Pricing evidence was not revealed; HP has not yet shared details about the modern device on its website.
