Asus has been announced its latest technology called Chromebox. The device will be powered by either an Intel Celeron 2955U Processor, an Intel Core i3-4010U processor or an Intel Core i7-4600U processor and will have 2GB/4GB x DDR3 RAM, integrated Intel HD graphics, and 16GB SSD.
The ASUS Chromebox is a system that has lots of computing power to meet most everyone’s needs built with integrated virus and malware protection for security. Chrome OS doesn’t provide the same kind of desktop experience such as Windows or Apple’s OS X, but it gives users access to the search giant’s many services, along with thousands of Chrome Web Store apps—many of which are designed for business, education and home use.
“The ASUS Chromebox offers the simplicity, security and speed of Chrome OS in the most compact and powerful Chrome device to date,” said Felix Lin, director of product management at Google.
Other features include 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, 4x USB 3.0 and a 2-in-1 card reader. It has a fan-less design for silent operation and will also have 100GB of Google Drive space that is valid for 2 years, after which users will have to continue their subscription. There’s also HDMI and DisplayPort outputs, so you can go dual monitor, and even use a 4K Ultra High Definition display. The ASUS Chromebox will be available in March for $179.
