Chromebox for meetings

The Chromeboxes are here, and knowing how these things go, there will be more to come.

First, ASUS announced the ASUS Chromebox, then HP followed with the HP Chromebox, and not to be left out, Google followed with the announcement of the Chromebox for meetings.

It’s raining Chromeboxes!

The Chromebox is a small form-factor computer powered by an Intel processor and running Google’s Chrome OS. So far, the models from ASUS and HP have the same connectivity – 4 USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port, DisplayPort, Ethernet and dual-band Wi-Fi N (802.11 a/b/g/n), and a 2-in-1 card reader. Internal storage will e provided by a 16 GB M.2 (NGFF) SSD.

From information released by ASUS, there will be three models of its Chromebox, based on the type of Intel processor inside. The low-end model will be powered by Intel® Celeron™ 2955U processor, the mid-range model will have an Intel® Core™ i3-4010U processor inside, while the high-end model will be powered by an Intel® Core™ i7-4600U processor. The price tag will start at $179.00 USD. Guess which one will carry that price tag. They will be available for sale in March (2014),
