Been using this for 3+years after giving up Starhub cable box.

Basically it's a web browser which you do everything on. The advantage is of course you can add extension like unblock youku and open many china sites. You can also open a music /youtube site and play music while you work on anther email tab. So for work cum entertainment it's the best system I have in the living room. Never look back after flying off Starhub. With the new gen having Android it makes streaming from your NAS much easier. And unlike windows no need for anti virus forever.

Chrome OS is definitely better than pure Android. More desktop like and you can open docs calculator blah blah blah. Only complain is the ports behind too cramp. And the lack of HDR to use it as your main system. It's for commercial /education use anyway but I decided to use it for entertainment.

Sound good and affordable.  I will go for the Asus Chromebox 3 or the latest HPs' when they are readily available! :)

I doubt HP will bring in. I got to beg Asus for the Chromebox 2.



Aside to David,

Mr Knight_Rider is keen in getting a unit of Chromebox CN62-G064U. Kindly assist him in his purchase.

 

Thank You!

Best Regards,

Catherine Lim

IT show or any PC show can buy. At least got free ram upgrade. Online seldom have ram promo. Local retailer cannot find anybody selling. You can give Cath a call regarding availability. She's very helpful. Local 3 year Global 2 year warranty.

No demand. Very sad. Because Asus market it as a video player for business use to play their advertisement. I am one of the first to use it for entertainment when Asus chromebox 1 came. I wanted the 2 because of AC connection and better chip.
