How would you like to turn your TV (or any HDMI display) into a Chrome OS computer for only $85? Chromebit CS10 is an HDMI dongle that will do just that. It has a Rockchip Quad-Core RK3288C Processor, 2GB memory (2GB LPDDR3 at 1066MHz), ARM Mali-T764 quad-core GPU, 16GB of eMMC storage, one USB 2.0 port for peripherals (like a USB hub) or expanded storage, dual-band a/b/g/n/ac 802.11 WiFi, and Bluetooth 4.0. Just plug it into your HDMI port, switch to the correct HDMI input, and pair it with your Bluetooth keyboard and mouse (you’ll want these to be Bluetooth because there is only one USB port). After connecting to a WiFi network, log into your Google account and download Chrome apps to get your work done. Its size makes it portable (4.8″ x 0.7″ x 1.2″) and like a Chromebook, it’s good for your light web-based computing needs. If you’re interested, the Chromebit CS10 is available from Amazon for $84.50.
