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.

  1. No real spec, no price… does anyone really give a rat’s arse at this point? (Apart from HP which is getting a free advert presumably…)

    1. Don’t you think it is nice to know that HP is going to make one of these too? Brad ferrets out all this news so we don’t have to hunt all over the web to see what is going on. I think he does a great job. I am sure as soon as more specs are available we will read about it here.

      1. Nope – when HP release products it gets plastered all over without Brad’s help thanks to copious PR budgets etc. Much more interested in the rogue Chinese products (like the Chromecast knockoff he posted about today). Then again I’m not in the US & likely not target audience…

  2. As long as they have the ability to enable a “legacy BIOS” so I can install other Linux distros with unmodified ISOs then I’ll buy a few of these or the ASUS one (whichever is cheaper and has the legacy BIOS option).

      1. I hope so too. I wonder if the vinyl stickers would stick on this thing, That Chrome logo ruins the look. Then again, I need to find stickers that also won’t make it look just as bad.
