Google Announces the New Chromebit, a mini-computer housed in one stick – more or less similar to a memory stick – which is very cheap and geared especially to schools and the more budget-conscious consumer. The stick allows you to turn your monitor or television into a full-fledged computer by connecting the device to the Hdmi ports.
In the Chromebit mini-computer there are all necessary components to get you up to speed: based on Google Chrome, the Google operating system, it has 2 GB of Ram, 16 GB of internal memory, a Usb port, WiFi, 802.11, Bluetooth 4.0 to connect devices such as a keyboard and mouse and an ARM Mali GPU 760 quad-core. Chromebit produced by Asus is expected to cost about $100 (around £65 at current market rates) and its looking like it will be on the market from next summer in the United States.
Three colours are expected to be available at launch, at least according to what you can see in the first picture released: blue, grey and orange.
