No hdmi, no ports for expansion.
It only has 2 dimms, and it has no ports to add an additional hard drive.
Just plain slow.!
I bought one of these a few month ago. The biggest POS I’ve hever had. Only one expansion slot, you can’t add a second hard drive, I can’t get my USB’s to work, a very proprietary unit. No help from HP. It now sits and collects dust. HP should stick to the printer business and leave the PC business to someone else.
Those are some seriously crappy processor specs. This is the third in a row for Woot with these HP faux desktops. Still, I see it sold out.
This is the same machine Woot offered just a couple of weeks ago. It uses a laptop processor that is soldered onto the motherboard and cannot be upgraded.
Laptop CPU’s are, by nature, much weaker than similar desktop CPUs.
To offer an example:
The laptop AMD A8-6410 2.0 GHz Quad Core CPU offered by Woot today has a benchmark score of 2518.
The AMD A8-6500 3.5 GHz CPU which is a desktop processor has a benchmark score of 4416.
The A8-3500 is a quad core desktop CPU. This processor fits in the FM2 socket and is an older model.
The newer A8-7600 3.1 GHz CPU is also a desktop quad core unit. The A8-7600 has a benchmark score of 5208.
(Note: The higher the benchmark score the better the performance.)
Some of you may complain that I’m comparing apples and oranges. That is the point. The difference between laptop and desktop processors is like the difference between apples and oranges.
I hope this helps.
