ASUS is preparing new Chromeboxes which will go on sale in March with prices starting at $179.
The entry-level model will sport Intel Celeron 2955U CPU, and there will also be more expensive options boasting Core i3 4010U and Core i7 4600U chips with support for 4K UHD display output. The latter model (with Core i7), however, won’t be available in the U.S.
The rest of the specs include 2 or 4 GB of RAM, 16GB SSD, USB 3.0, 802.11 a/b/g/n Wifi and 10/100/1000 Ethernet connectivity, display ports and full size SD card slots.
