Lenovo has announced the newest addition to its business-orientated ‘ThinkCentre Tiny’ desktop line: the ThinkCentre Chromebox Tiny.

The small form factor PC runs Chrome OS (naturally) and measures 7-inches (height) by 7.2-inches (width) and 1.4-inches thick (depth).

Lenovo say it has been ‘purposefully-designed for education and small business users’ who want to take advantage of cloud-based computing.

Lenovo Chromebox Tiny Specs

Although announced today Lenovo have yet to confirm what processor, RAM or storage options will be offered. The unit is likely to come in a range of configuration options though all models are said to feature the following ports as standard: 

  •  4 × USB 3.0
  • HDMI Out
  • DisplayPort
  • Ethernet
  • Headphone/Microphone combo jack

The ThinkCentre Chromebox Tiny is compatible with Lenovo’s innovative ‘ThinkCentre Tiny-in-One’ PC, offering owners a literal ‘drop in’ upgrade to drive the 23-inch display experience it features.

“[The] ThinkCentre Chromebox helps education institutions and small businesses who want to deploy secure and easy to manage technology within manageable budgets,” Lenovo say in an official press release.

Ouyang Jun, VP and general manager of Desktop and Visuals, Lenovo, adds that the device is “…testament to our commitment to the continued evolution of the desktop and our promise to push the boundaries on innovation for our education and business customers.”

”Combined with the ThinkCentre Tiny-in-One, the new Chromebox illustrates our belief in more flexibility for teachers and IT managers to continue to offer desktop solutions in a modern day environment.”

The ThinkCentre Chromebox Tiny goes sale in the US in June priced from $199. The ThinkCentre Tiny-in-One it can combine Megazord-style with is already available with a RRP of $279 US.

    its hard to find storage on chromeOS device spec these days

    • miri

      It’s always 16GB unless specifically stated otherwise.

    • Mi Pen

      Well storage is cloud based anyway. But if you want old on laptop storage like my Acer C710, plenty kicking around second hand for little money on ebay. And mine runs really smooth as it has a haswell celeron in it.

      • hiulupop

        hmmm I didnt mean “its hard to find chrome OS device with higher storage”
        I meant its hard to find product page of Chrome OS devices with their hard drive capacity specified on it

        • Mi Pen

          Average is 16gb or 32gb. I just google the model number and word spec. So a review somewhere usually has it at least.

        • Monolasa

          Agree with you. Even in google official chromebook website. It has no usefull info at all.

          BTW. You can plug external USB harddrive

  • He says “secure” and then ruins the video by showing Windows 8 on the screen xD

  • The Pool Man

    How about an Ubuntu Tiny?

  • liamdools

    They should make one that cheap running Windows. Really no use for a Chrome OS desktop.

    • calden74

      Why not, you can connect a larger display, install more memory than you can in a laptop, etc. You can even use a ChromeBox as a TV set-box, I have an HP connected to my 50″ TV, it’s also running Kody, an Android app.

    • Luke

      I completely disagree. It allows you to do everything a chromebook can on a larger screen, potentially enhancing productivity. Theres also the cost factor – chrome os is cheaper to run.
