Portable Design: As a Chromebox, the primary design focus when making this computer is portability. This is a desktop you can take with you wherever you go.
Solid State Drive: While it is a very small amount, the flash storage that comes with this desktop is lightning fast, resulting in quick boot times and short loading screens.
Bonus Peripherals: As a bonus, the manufacturers have included a free webcam and set of speakers. This adds an extra $100 to the overall value of this product, for free!
Severely Limited Storage: With only 16 gigs of local storage, you are going to run out of space fast. Some options to avoid this are to use cloud storage like Google Drive, or to purchase an external hard drive.
Underpowered Graphics: With a very nice processor, this machine can still handle only so much in the graphics department. This means you simply won’t be able to play many newer games.
