The first Chromebox PCs from Dell will go on sale later this month, the tech company has announced.
Priced at $179, the entry-level Dell Chromebox specs offer a choice of Intel Celeron 2957U or Core i3 processor, 2GB or 4GB RAM and a 16GB SSD.
The internals are housed in a stylish 4.9-inch x 4.9-inch square chassis with embossed Dell and Chrome logos on top.
Dell say the “… small, quiet, cloud-based desktop is a perfect fit for a variety of business uses including education centers, testing facilities, and kiosks, as well as home and small offices.”
On paper the Dell Chromebox sounds as good as other similarly spec’d, similarly priced offerings from ASUS, HP and Acer. Those with a predilection for anything Dell can bag one from Dell US starting September 26.
Alongside the model for Joe Public is a premium offering for Bob Business. The aptly named ‘Dell Chromebox for Meetings’ is targeting high-end business users. It has an eye-watering price tag of $999 (and that’s after discounts!).
The premium price is reflected in a premium feature set. For money, enterprise users get a souped-up Intel Core i7-4600U processor, 4GB RAM and 16GB of SSD storage.
Also included is one year of support, a swish 1080p Logitech webcam, a high-end Jabra microphone/speaker and a QWERTY remote control. Dell is also throwing in a monitor mount and all the necessary wires to get it running.
Consumer or premium, all Dell Chromeboxes come with ethernet, built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, four USB 3.0 ports, an SD card slot, and both HDMI and DisplayPort outputs.
