The Chromebox 5 from ASUS is a observe on from the earlier era Chromebox 4. Should you’re effectively invested within the Google Ecosystem and aren’t gaming closely or doing content material creation, they’re a tool price investigating.
The up to date model has some fairly robust specs (SKU dependent) and an excellent characteristic:
- twelfth Gen Intel i7/i5/i3 or Celeron processor choices
- PCIe Gen 4×4 SSD
- Two HDMI ports and a DisplayPort for video
- 2.5Gbps Ethernet, Wi-Fi 6E, Thunderbolt and 4 USB-A ports for connectivity
- A entrance panel 3.5mm headphone jack and microSD reader
The characteristic that makes me suppose this may win a spot on my desk quickly is the 15W wi-fi charger constructed into the chassis. My principal concern is the USD$399.00 price which can in all probability end in a $650 beginning value for the lower-end choices inside Australia. Time will inform for positive; if a evaluation unit turns into obtainable, we’ll actually be aiming to have a look.
