ASUS announces the Haswell-based Chromebox Desktop PC

Google made some news yesterday when they finally unleashed the SDK for Chromecast, and today there’s another “Chromey” piece of news courtesy of ASUS. The company has just announced the ASUS Chromebox, a desktop-based solution for folks that love Google’s Chrome OS.

The ASUS Chromebox is a tiny little contraption measuring only 4.88 x 4.88 x 1.65-inches which means it’s a little bigger than Intel’s NUC, but still small enough to leave a tiny footprint on your desktop. It may be small, but it still packs a punch thanks to the array of processors available for the Chromebox.chromebox

The Chromebox will come in three different configurations, and the low-end model will house an Intel Celeron 2955U chip clocked at 1.4GHz, integrated Intel HD Graphics, 2GB of RAM, and a 16GB SSD. The midrange and high-end models with have the Core i3-4010U (1.7GHz) and i7-4600U (2.1GHz/3.3GHz Turbo) processors, 4GB of RAM, and Intel HD 4400 integrated graphics.

All models come with Bluetooth 4.0, an HDMI port, x4 USB 3.0 ports, an SD card reader, and dual-band 802.11n. The Chromeboxes will also support 4k playback thanks to a handy DisplayPort. If you’re worried about the small SSD, you’ll feel a bit more at ease to know that ASUS is kicking in 100GB of free Google Drive storage for 2 years.asus.chromebox-3

The ASUS Chromebox offers plenty of options for those looking for a Chrome desktop unit, and price is right as they will start at only $179. The Celeron and Core i3 boxes are expected to be available in March while the i7 Chromebox is only expected to be available in select regions.
