The Google Chromebox is a partnership between Google and Samsung that brings Cloud Computing to the desktop. Mainly aimed at businesses, the unit can also bring benefits and advantages to the consumer. It runs an Intel Celeron and has a 16GB SDD, built-in WiFi, Gigabit Ethernet, 6 USB 2.0 ports, 2 X Display Ports and Bluetooth; the box runs Google’s latest Chrome OS version 19. Made to allow you to work entirely from the Web (surprisingly generally with Google products), Google has alluded to off-line Google Docs support in the near future.
The Chromebox will be available from Best Buy in the US in the next few weeks for $320, and for business, can be purchased with management and support packages direct from Google for an additional $150.
