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.

- 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.
