ASUS Chromebox 3 Mini Desktop Computer
The Chromebox 3 Mini Desktop Computer from Asus is a compact system with a small footprint that runs the Chrome OS, which relies on internet connectivity for full access to its features. It's plenty capable of handling everyday tasks such as browsing the internet, composing and editing documents, and streaming online content. Specs-wise, it's equipped with a 2.4 GHz Intel Core i3-7100U dual-core processor, 8GB of DDR4 RAM, and integrated Intel HD graphics. Like most Chrome OS-based systems, storage space is limited, so the Chromebox 3 is only equipped with a 32GB M.2 SATA SSD. Should you need more space, you can attach external storage solutions using its multiple USB ports as well as its microSD card reader. Other integrated features include a HDMI port, Gigabit LAN, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and a 3.5mm headset jack.
- Chrome OS
- Using Linux as a base, Google designed Chrome OS to work exclusively with web applications. The user interface takes a minimalist approach, which greatly resembles the Google Chrome web browser. Chrome OS was built for people who spend a majority, if not all, of their time on the computer connected to the internet. The only application that comes installed on Chrome OS is a special Google Chrome web browser with an integrated media player and file manager. All other applications are accessed by adding apps from the Google Chrome Web Store. Since Chrome OS relies entirely on Google's web apps and access to Google's services, it is highly recommended that you connect to the internet to optimize your Chrome OS experience.

- Dual Display Output
- Equipped with a HDMI and DisplayPort outputs over USB Type-C, the Chromebox 3 supports up to two external displays for larger viewing and enhanced multitasking.
