The CRN Test Centre took a look at the HP Compaq 6000 Pro to see if it offered value, differentiation and, importantly, could provide value for the next several years in a rapidly changing IT landscape. First, here are the speeds and feeds:
The HPCompaq 6000 Pro AiO came to the CRN Test Centre lab built with an Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 processor at 3GHz, 4 GB of RAM and a 500-GB HDD.The display measured 21.5 inches and was exceptionally bright and clear—supporting high definition.
HP preloaded the PC with Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, which, for Windows, is the most forward-looking choice.
Using Primate Labs Geekbench 2.1.3 benchmarking software, the 6000 Pro scored 3,428.This puts it in the middle of the pack ofWindows 7 desktops we’ve seen in terms of performance, but toward the top of the pack for Core 2 Duo-based PCs in its price class.
The unit we received arrived with a wireless keyboard and mouse, and an on-board Webcamwith HP MediaSmart Webcam software.
This is an important part of what we saw in the 6000 ProAiO: With client-based videoconferencing at the early stage of what appears to be an explosion, HP is poised to provide steady and continuing support for video calling and conferencing.
