  1. I don’t understand why Acer isn’t coming out with any new Chromebox models. Surely a Chromebox can be manufactured at less cost than a Chromebook – and yet the Chromebox can be sold for near the price of a Chromebook. I suppose the Chromeboxes don’t sell well? I like having the internet on my TV but it seems to be a bit awkward to buy a Chromebook with the intention of connecting it to my TV. I also prefer ethernet – but I think I could use an adapter with a Chromebook for that. Still it’s an extra workaround.
