If you are an avid Chromebook user like my self, odds are you’ve been tempted before with a Chromebox. A Chromebox is a small desktop computer (similar in size and form to a Mac Mini) running Chrome OS. Typically these machines start around $179 or so, but right now Amazon is having a pretty good sale on HP’s model.
The base model HP Chromebox is currently for sale on Amazon for $138.43 with free shipping included. The sale only applies to the white model (even though the blue and black models are also on sale for $159) and comes with 2GB of RAM and a 16GB SSD. The processor found inside is the Intel Celeron 2955U (also found in the Acer C720) clocked at 1.4 GHz. While 2GB of RAM might be just a bit small, you can upgrade the RAM (Note: The HP Chromebox only has one DIMM slot so you’ll need to get RAM in a single stick).
Anyone going to jump on this deal? I’m certainly considering it. Make sure to share this with anyone you think may be interested in a Chromebox as well.
