Verdict

In an office or workplace environment, the HP ProOne 600 G5 has a bunch of utilities unless you are working with graphics. It has several variants that should be helpful for you no matter what sort of performance you require. We must inform you that there are better alternatives in the price tag.

In this current scenario, no one will like to spend hundreds of dollars on a Pentium processor. Therefore, it must be bought after one has weighed both the good and bad sides of the PC.

Introduction

The ProOne 600 G5 made by HP is a device targeted to fulfill the demands you have as an office worker.

Sure the specs list of this variant is nothing spectacular when looked at, but there are up to i9 processor variants that you may opt for.

Now there is nothing out-of-the-ordinary in this series, but all of these have been tested and trusted to be solid companions for business-related purposes.

You get an Intel Pentium Gold processor here, 4 GB of RAM, integrated graphics and a 500 GB of hard disk space. But what’s common in all the variants is the border less display.

You also get a DVD drive, like the traditional desktops and hence it is a modern PC that hasn’t forgotten its roots. It is made to run today, tomorrow and even more.

HP ProOne 600 G5 AIO

Buy for: Compact Size│ Good display

Beware of: The price tag of the lower variants is not very justified

Best uses for: Attending online conferences or delivering online lectures, billing counters of small shop, basic multitasking, elementary photo editing, blogging, etc.

The alternatives:

Design and Build

The most attractive part of the display of the AIO is its design. Check out best desktop computers.

The 21.5 inch IPS display is just fine for any sort of office, and there are practically very thin bezels on the sides and at the top.

This is an anti-glare IPS panel as well, so you or your employees will be able to work long hours without having to take a break.

The display sits on a stand, thus having the orthodox All-in-One looks. You also get excellent cable management and optional touch-screen display, and hence buying it becomes more convenient. 

Performance

The dual-core Intel Pentium Gold 5th generation processor present in the computer works as good as a 9th gen i3 in most aspects and has a lower power requirement.

Also, it supports hyper threading, but the latter does not. The i3, however, pulls way ahead in the benchmark scores and bigger cache memory.

Moreover, it also has the features that a modern processor must be having. But this doesn’t mean that the G5 is not useful.

With a clock speed of 3.8 GHz, you can expect it to run basic document editing software or the web browser.

We won’t be talking about video editing or gaming since there isn’t enough power in it for that kind of activity.

You get 4 GB of RAM and an Intel 610 Graphics chip that allows it to take on the simplest tasks, but multitasking is not its area.

It supports basic virtualization as well. You cannot increase the frequency since the CPU does not support turbo-boosting.

Spending on upgrades for the PC thus won’t be viable.

Windows 10 OS has been pre-installed in it.

Storage and RAM

This PC has a 500 GB hard drive and as stated already 4 GB of RAM.

The RAM can be increased to 64 GB at most, and there is a spare bay for adding both RAM and storage drives.

The video memory is shared from the RAM. 

Ports and Connectivity

There are a total of 5 USB ports, out of which one is a USB 2.0 Type-C port supporting up to 15W charging, 2 USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports are at the side and the other two are at the back.
