Asus Chromebox M004U is now available on Amazon.com for pre-order at the price of $179. This Chromebox will release on 14th March, but it has already topped the Desktop Computers category on Amazon. New headache for Microsoft?!
A Chromebox does not come with display screen, keyboard or mouse. One can connect it to external screens via HDMI port. Asus Chromebox M004U has 1.4 GHz Celeron 2955U Haswell based processor, 16GB Solid State Drive storage, 2 GB DDR3 RAM, four USB 3.0 ports, DisplayPort++, Ethernet and Wi-Fi support. Its dimensions are 4.88 x 4.88 x 1.65 inches.
As with other Chrome OS devices, it comes with free 100GB Google Drive space for two years.
Asus will also release another Chrome OS device, the Asus Chromeboox M-005U, with powerful Intel i3-4010U processor in coming days.
