While, you can also knock an additional $10 off at Newegg with a mail in rebate, Amazon is currently offering this same model for $159.99 shipped. If you aren’t interested in the Newegg credit, this is the lowest direct dollar price we’ve seen on this highly rated Chromebox. Like Newegg, Amazon is also offering an additional $10 off via its own post-purchase rebate, for those interested.
It features Google’s Chrome OS running on a Celeron 2955U (1.4GHz) with 2GB of DDR3 RAM, a 16GB SSD and Intel HD graphics. The Chromebox “houses a processor powerful enough for ultrafast multitasking performance in Chrome OS and the connectivity options to choose your own screen size, connect to multiple displays at once. While ASUS displays are recommended, any HDTV or monitor with HDMI or DisplayPort will do the trick.
