Google & ASUS Announce Chromebit

If you've wanted to get into the world of ChromeOS, but haven't wanted to drop an entire $200 on a Chromebook, ASUS and Google have teamed up to bring us the "Chromebit". This is a Chromebox-On-A-Stick that packs in a 1.8GHz CPU, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. In addition to the basics, it also has Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11ac WiFi and a full-sized USB 2.0 port. This is absolutely fantastic hardware for under $100.

When it ships this summer, the Chromebit will be available in three different colours—blue, orange and grey. Google and Asus haven’t yet announced how much the unit will retail for in Canada, but based on a post on its Chrome Blog, it appears the company’s aim is to have the Chromebit cost less than $100 everywhere it’s sold.
