Google Launches Chromebit

Following the announcement of the ASUS Chromebit about seven months ago, Google in collaboration with ASUS has officially revealed that customers interesting in a full Chrome OS-based computer on an HDMI stick can now purchase it.

As a reminder, the Chromebit comes with Quad-core processor, Mali 760 GPU, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, USB 2.0 and HDMI Out ports, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.0, and Chrome OS. The HDMI stick can be plugged into any display and turns it into a web-based computer. Although, to take full advantage of this computer, you must connect either a wired or a wireless mouse and keyboard.

The ASUS Chromebit will be available starting today for $85 through Google's online store, Amazon, Fry’s, Newegg, as well as other retail partners.
