Asus has quietly added a new Chromebox to its line of small form-factor desktop computers powered by Google’s Chrome OS operating system.

The new Asus Fanless Chromebox is a 8.14″ x 5.83″ x 1.26″ computer with an extruded aluminum chassis that dissipates heat without the need for a fan, allowing the computer to run silently.

Asus says the Fanless Chromebox will be available with the following options:

  • CPU: Intel Celeron 5205U/Core i3-10110U/Core i7-10510U
  • Memory: 4GB or 8GB DDR4 (2-SODIMMs)
  • Storage: 32GB or 64GB eMMC or 128GB M.2 SATA SSD

Other features include two HDMI 2.0 ports, two Gigabit Ethernet ports, audio and microSD card ports, and six USB ports:

  • 1 x USB 3.2 Type-C
  • 2 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A
  • 1 x USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A
  • 2 x USB 2.0 Type-A

The new Chromebox showed up on the Asus website recently, but Asus hasn’t issued a press release yet so there’s no word on the price or release date.

  1. In general, can Chromboxes be wiped and installed with other OSes? If so, this looks like a wonderful candidate for a fanless nettop.

    1. Have you heard of Crostini? You can run a full Debian Linux environment on top ChromeOS. A lot of developers do. Most secure and versatile desktop OS imo.

  2. This one with its two Wi-Fi antennas looks like one of those IoT PCs designed to run a router OS and act as routers. But is this Chromebox intended to work as a wireless router for other devices? Chrome OS isn’t a router OS as far as I know. I’m confused.
