HP Chromebox, Chrome OS

A Chromebox can be defined as a personal computer running Chrome OS. Introduced in May 2012, this device is a desktop alternative for Chromebooks. It can also be classified as a small form-factor PC.


Chromeboxes, like all the other devices that use the Chrome OS, support web applications, being a device dependent on an Internet connection. This addiction makes possible software functionality and data storage in Google Drive.


The Chromebox market is a large one, and there are also the top manufacturers in the IT industry that make up such devices. Among these producers are: Asus, Samsung, Dell, etc.

The price at which this device is sold is between $179 and $999, depending on its configuration.

The First Chromebox

The first Chromebox released was owned by Samsung, launched in May 2012, using a dual-core Intel Celeron Processor 867 (1.3 GHz). It also had six USB 2.0 ports, 4GB RAM memory and two DisplayPort ++ slots suitable for VGA, DVI and HDMI.

Concluding some aspects of this device, but at the same time presenting new ones, all you need to remember is that it is:

  • small & slim;
  • simple & compact;
  • secure, safe and based on account access;
  • an excellent photo organizer & backup assistant;
  • a great support for web applications (since it uses Chrome OS);

Small & slim? Simple & compact? How so?

Small and slim as shape, which is freely visible. Simply by simply installing it, which takes no more than a few minutes. In other words, you just have to attach a monitor, a keyboard and a mouse then turn it on, and you’ll be on the Internet, as I said, in just a few minutes.


You should consider purchasing such a device. Any model you choose, I want you to know that is the right choice. This well-designed system should do everything you need, maybe even more.
