Acer upgrades Chromebox CXI with 4th-gen IntelCore i3 chip

August of last year, Acer launched the Chromebox CXI that supports TPM 1.2 and a small footprint. Half a year later, the Taiwanese company updates the CXI lineup by adding a model that runs the 4th-gen IntelCore i3 4030U dual-core processor and supports 4k and 2K displays. Chromebox is now easier to manage and deploy, thanks to the Google Management Console, a web-based console that lets anyone control a set of Chrome OS-powered computers.

Chromebook Remote app released to control your Chrome OS device from afar

Google has introduced a new app which lets you control and access your Chromebook or Chromebox remotely from several other different platforms. While the Chrome Remote Desktop app allows you to remotely access another computer through your Chrome browser or Chromebook, the Google Chromebook Remote app gives you just the opposite - access to your Chromebook from a different computer. Although there might be some lag, these two pieces of software effectively connect every desktop computer you might have in your home and in any remote location.

Acer has rolled out a new small form factor computer that has one of the smallest footprints available called the Chromebox CXI Series. The machine is designed to stand upright on the desk or to be mounted on the back of a computer monitor or TV using a VESA mounting adapter that is included. Acer also gives the machine a feature called Powerwash that is able to quickly delete all local data.
