HP Chromebase 22-aa0012 AIO PC w/ Pentium Gold 6405U

HP Chromebase 21.5 All-in-One Desktop, Intel Pentium Gold 6405U

2021 release HP Chromebase 22-aa0012 is an All-in-One desktop computer with a rotating 21.5-inch Full HD IPS touch monitor, entry level Intel Pentium Gold 6405U processor, 64GB eMMC flash storage, 4GB RAM, Chrome operating system and modern connectivity options like the 4 x superspeed USB ports.

The quarter two of 2020 release Intel Pentium Gold 6405U processor (2 cores, 4 threads running in parallel with hyper threading) works at a fixed clock speed of 2.4GHz and without turbo. With an average CPU Passmark benchmark score of 2360 it is capable of handling your usual daily tasks of web browsing, word processing, doing spreadsheets, distant learning during, video watching and streaming and basic gaming. The entry level Pentium Gold 6405U is a little bit better than the Pentium 5405U, it has no turbo boost speed and comes with only the two cores. 

4GB RAM at 2400MHz is not a lot of memory for today’s conditions, but will be adequate for the daily performance of this entry level All in One desktop computer. You can still have a few Chrome browsers and a couple of apps open without experiencing significant issues. Same is the case for the 64GB storage space, but it is an eMMC flash storage with much higher speed than the regular SATA hard drive and Chrome OS takes up about 13.8GB of space  and you have about 50GB left for saving your files locally. You’ll probably rely more on Cloud based storage and can connect external storage through one of the USB ports.

The built-in Intel HD graphics card is similar to the previous generation Intel HD 610 that you would find in the previous generation Intel Pentium 5405U and will be fine for the basis graphics tasks on the internet and you should be able to play all the Chrome games as they’re not as demanding as some of the Windows games. You can put this 21.5-inch HP Chromebase All in One Desktop PC in the middle of your living room for home entertainment or whatever people in the house would like to use it for. The screen rotates 90 degrees to be used in landscape and portrait modes as you can see in the product photos on Amazon.com.
