I recently had some time to become intimate with everything Chromebox. Powerbase contributor Sean Catlin was nice enough to surrender the device to me for a while so that I could figure out the absolute best way to rail on it in the span of 2500 words or so. I’m joking, actually. My intention was never to rail on the system itself–or the operating system, but what I experienced was so completely polarizing that this review has a hard time finding balance. At one point I am speaking very highly of the machine and the operating system and at another, I am inconsolable. The system as a whole certainly has its ups and downs, and each of those are made crystal clear in this review. Enjoy.
