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.
The Chromebox CXI now displays video files with 2048 x 1536(2K) and 3840 x 2160(4k) resolution. That’s pretty impressive for such a small computer inside a 0.6 liter chassis. It’s guaranteed safe and securely because of the Google virus protection and Trusted Platform Module (TPM 1.2). With these changes, the Chromebox CXI is now more robust, powerful, and energy-efficient. Expect optimum performance from this little box that reduces footprints. Device is currently available in Canada with a $399.99(CAD) price tag.
Chromebox, just like the Chromebook, is one practical solution introduced by Google for small to medium companies and those in the educational system (students, teachers, administrators). This computer may be small but it’s fast enough to be used for multiple projects. It supports HD videos and simple applications that would be beneficial to most users, made possible by the 4th-gen Intel processor installed.
Other specs of the VESA mountable Acer Chromebox CXI include the following: 16GB SSD, 4GB DDR3 1600Mhz memory, WiFi, four USB 3.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, HDMI, and a card slot that can support up to a 32GB SD card. Acer even added a mouse and USB keyboard approved by Google for a more comfortable computing experience.
