Google and ASUS have been collaborating for quite some time on the Chromebit, which is essentially a computer on a USB stick that can be plugged into your TV or monitor. Now the day has come to launch the thing.
With the launch comes an updated price: $85 over the previously reported $100. The specs we already knew, but in case you haven't heard or forgot, you get a Rockchip ARM processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and a USB port. And of course, it runs ChromeOS.
Chromebit will be available at Amazon, Fry's, and Newegg in the US to start, with others offering it in Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, and the UK.
