Google adding Chromebox mini-desktop to the Chrome OS mix

New, 72 comments

In addition to the pair of Chromebooks Google is launching today, Google says it's also working on a "Chromebox" desktop. It's going to be primarily targeted at the enterprise (like Google's own engineers), where folks might want to use multiple displays, or don't have any use for the portability of a laptop. Of course, the idea of a "nettop" is hardly a new one, but it makes a lot of sense with Chrome OS, and hopefully Google offers this to us lowly consumers as well. No word on price or release date, but with the stock components inside of this thing it can't be far off -- or cost more than a couple hundies.

Stay tuned to our Google I/O 2011 day two keynote liveblog for up-to-the-microsecond coverage.
