Lenovo’s first Chromebox is now available for purchase. The ThinkCentre Chromebox Tiny is a desktop computer that measures 7.2″ x 7″ x 1.4″ and weighs about 2.2 pounds. It looks a lot like Lenovo’s line of tiny Windows computers, except this model runs Google’s Chrome operating system.
The Chromebox Tiny comes in two models. For about $200 (from Newegg, CDW, or Great Lakes Computer) you can get a model with an Intel Celeron 3205U Broadwell processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage.
There’s also a higher-priced model (available from Newegg, Promevo, and Great Lakes Computer) with a Core i3-5005U Broadwell processor. While this model has a more powerful processor, it also has just 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage.
Both models feature 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, Gigabit Ethernet, four USB 3.0 ports, a headset jack, and HDMI and DisplayPort.
As part of Lenovo’s “tiny” family of mini PCs, this little computer is also designed to work with the Lenovo Tiny-in-One desktop monitor and dock. Just slide the whole computer into the slot in the back of the monitor and you’ve got yourself an all-in-one desktop.
