Acer’s most excellent Chromebox yet packs up to 8 GB RAM, wires 4K monitors

Lenovo 42T4929                      

Acer ChromeboxIf you consideration tiny, surprisingly powerful and productive Windows desktops like HP’s issue Mini and Pavilion Mini, before Zotac’s Zbox army would ultimately have an advantage to Chromebox extinction, you might like to reconsider.

Granted, Chrome OS-running PCs are still light-years away from genuinely flouting into the mainstream computing décor. But at the same time as extended at the same time as 4K-compatible, Intel middle Haswell, 8 GB RAM configurations cost $400 a pop, Chromeboxes spirit live on.

And perhaps prosper, backed by big-brand hardware manufacturers such at the same time as Acer, basin and Asus. The past is “guilty” in support of making an 8 GB DDR3 powerhouse available to the masses, with a tortuous CXI-i38GKM style come to and middle i3-4030U CPU inside.

Not exactly mini-PC material, measuring 6.8 x 5.5 x 2.3 inches, Acer’s nearly all compelling Chromebox to court can seamlessly hook up to a high-res 4K outer demonstrate via HDMI before DisplayPort. It can even progress not in of sight by attaching to a monitor’s VESA mount.

Higher than all, it doesn’t hold back on on connectivity options, with four USB 3.0 hubs, Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, and Bluetooth 4.0. The no more than striking flaw is the cramped 16 GB solid state drive, though a full-sized SD slot lets you without doubt add above storeroom outer space. In addition, everything stays taking part in the cloud these days anyway.

Taking part in holder 400 bucks feels a minor rich in support of your blood, and don’t mind final a Chrome browser tab from moment in time to moment in time, a 4 GB RAM new to the job Chromebox, style come to CXI-i34GKM is on hand in support of $350. The same Haswell playing piece is found under the top, and aesthetically, the two are identical twins.
