Samsung Chromebox surfaces online

Samsung logoWe’ve known since CES that Samsung is prepping a Chromebox for the masses, but official specs and pricing details were scarce and preliminary at best.

Fortunately, the folks at Engadget managed to spot a comprehensive product listing on TigerDirect’s web store before the entry was quickly removed from the public eye.

The Chromebox will apparently be powered by a 1.9GHz, dual-core Intel Celeron B840. It is also slated to feature 4GB of DDR3 memory, a 16GB solid-state drive and six USB ports.

Although it remains unclear if a wireless mouse and keyboard will ultimately be included, the price, as it stands now, appears to be set at a fairly reasonable $330.

In addition to the above-mentioned Chromebox, it should be noted that Google is reportedly planning to upgrade its current lineup of Intel Atom-powered Chromebooks with Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge processors.

Indeed, a number of Chromebook users have found current models to be painfully slow - despite the lack of OS bloat. 

Fortunately, LaptopReviews recently reported that Sony is prepping a Vaio-branded Chromebook that will sport an ARM-based Nvidia Tegra processor.

Additional specs are said to include an 11.6" diagonal screen, 2GB of RAM, two USB ports, SD card reader, headphone port, microphone, HDMI, Wireless 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth and a 16GB SSD.



Both the Chromebook and Chromebox run a stripped down operating system known as Chrome OS, which is based on an always connected (Web) browser interface.
