Today, Expansys offers the LG Chromebase for $194 shipped. That’s the lowest price we’ve seen on this 4/5 star model and close to the price of a similarly equipped Monitor without a PC built in. IT has 2GB of RAM, 16GB SSD 802.11 Wifi and much more.

Ebay also offers the Intel’s Compute Stick for $40 shipped.  That’s $9 less than Amazon and the lowest price we’ve seen for this HDMI-based computing platform that comes with 1 USB port,  Ubuntu OS and 8GB of storage.
