Dell Inspiron Micro is a Chromebox competitor device with Windows. It is almost similar to the HP Stream Mini Desktop and the HP Pavilion Mini. Similar to Chromeboxes, the Inspiron Micro can be connected to any HDMI supported screen and external input devices. It is a tiny box fully loaded with powerful computing.
Dell has released two variants of Inspiron Micro with different processors. The cheapest model features Intel Celeron Processor J1800 (1M Cache, up to 2.58 GHz) and runs on Windows 8.1 with Bing. It has 2GB RAM and 32 GB SSD storage, and costs just $179.99. Another model features Intel Pentium Processor J2900 (2M Cache, up to 2.67 GHz) with other similar specifications and costs $229.99. These models don’t include monitor, keyboard or mouse.
Release of such mini computers from HP and Dell is definitely going to put pressure on Google. Interesting fact of this story is that Dell and HP already offer Chrome OS devices with similar specifications and price.
