Samsung's Chromebox use to resemble Apple's Mac Mini with its rounded aluminum corners, and black surface. The company released the latest design today and things look drastically different.

Ditching the sleek aluminum and acrylic design in favor of injected molded plastic has rendered the Chromebox into something less likely to infringe on an Apple trademark.

The specifications of the new machine remain unchanged and this revision seems to be purely cosmetic. It is however no slouch, sporting a 1.9GHz Celeron Processor, 4GB of memory and 16GB of storage.
