Google Chromebit: PC On A Stick

Apr 1, 2015

Category: Tech

By all accounts, Google’s Chromecast has been a huge hit. The little device that lets you stream video to any TV has sold like extremely warm flapjacks since it debuted for $35 in July ’13. Now Google is taking that approach a step further with the Asus Chromebit; it’s basically a PC on a stick.

Just connect it via HDMI to any monitor or television and you’ll have the Chrome OS and all its features ready to go. It features the same Rockchip 3288 processor found in Asus’ other low-cost Chromebooks, Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, 2GB of RAM, a 16GB SSD, and a full-size USB 2.0 port for connecting accessories. No word yet on a price, but it’s expected to be under $100. This isn’t the first such product to hit the market, but with Google’s might behind it, you’d be wise to bet on the Asus Chromebit emerging as a success.
