HP will launch its first Chromebox this spring. The HP Chromebox is a small form factor desktop computer designed to run Chrome OS. Among other applications, HP and Google say it’ll work in enterprise settings with the new Google for meetings video conferencing system.
The HP Chromebox features HDMI and DisplayPort (supporting up to two displays at once), WiFi and Bluetooth, and 4 USB 3.0 ports. It’ll feature an Intel Haswell processor, with the high-end Chromebox for meetings model sporting a Core i7 chip.
HP plans to offer models in four colors including silver, turquoise, black, and white and each model will work with a standard VESA mount if you want to attach the little computer to the back of a display.
With the introduction of its first Chrome desktops, HP joins Asus and Samsung in the Chromebox space. Dell is also expected to launch a Chromebox in the coming months.
HP hasn’t yet revealed the price for its new Chrome desktops, but the company already sells Chromebook laptops with 11.6 inch to 14 inch displays and Google’s browser-based operating system for $280 and up.
