Asus mini-PC breaks Chrome OS price barrier

Asus announced its first Chrome OS computer, a Chromebox mini-PC that runs on 4th Gen. Intel Celeron SoCs, offers 4k UHD video output, and starts at $179. When Asus jumps into the increasingly hot Chrome OS market by shipping its $179 Asus Chromebox in March, it will likely be the new price leader among computers that run Google’s Linux-based Chrome Operating System.
