These aren't desktop computers. They are laptop motherboards and CPU's thrown in a cheap plastic case. The chip is throttled, and much slower than a desktop equivalent i5 chip. Deal is okay for $399, but don't expect a desktop computer, expected a watered down laptop computer in a plastic case that can't be upgraded beyond what is already in that box. Power supply is tiny (180 watts) and graphics is poor.

It's not a high end machine. It is throttled. That's why it is 2.2 GHz. It is a throttled down CPU. Probably because it has such a small power supply that it can't supply enough watts to run it unthrottled, or because it is a laptop CPU which would be desirable in a battery operated laptop to sacrifice performance for longer battery life. Or a combination of both. No way to unlocked the CPU in BIOS. It is locked down at 2.2 GHz.

This computer is like buying a new Corvette, then getting it home and finding out it has been throttled to only go 55 mph. And have no way to unthrottled it.

I had this same PC, but in the i7 version instead of the i5 version. This thing is cheap junk, and was returned two days later. You get what you pay for. The cardboard box the computer comes in is more rugged than the cheap flimsy plastic computer case, and the cheap flimsy laptop DVD drive that will snap off if you look at it the wrong way. This thing is a cheap laptop thrown in a plastic black box, with a wimpy 180 watt power supply.

This is not a Laptop CPU, this is a low power Desktop CPU with 35W TDP designed for small form factor PC and All-in-One. So the performance will be more like a Laptop i7-6700HQ than a full blown Desktop i7-6700.

This is by far the best type of review that I could have hoped for. On paper, this sounded like a great little rig, but your two posts have deflated that balloon pretty quickly. Thanks for taking the time to save me $400.00

Much agreed on all of that. I was in the same boat. Thanks EdEd1190.

Hopefully something a bit better will come along in the next week or two. Not a whole lot of desktop deals (that aren't gaming or over a grand) thus far during the holidays this year.

I purchased this similar spec desktop on BF https://m.samsclub.com/ip/hp-24-p...-0-0-optcr

Is this also a throttled machine?

Yeah, any of the processors with a T on the end are low power and throttled.

Passmark of 7705 for regular i5 vs passmark of 7179 for the T, low power version. Not drastic enough to matter in my opinion.

The i5-6600T is not what they put in laptops. As an example, i5-7500U is a laptop CPU with passmark of 4741. That's a more significant hit on performance.

Your comments about case and psu are correct though. I'm not sure if you can even put a low profile card in this case.

He's wrong about CPU, its barely throttled. Look up passmark of the T vs standard i5 6600.

Only issue is case and PSU give you no room for upgrades like a GPU.
