CEO Erik Stromquist and the team at CTL have been burning the midnight oil getting supply lines up and running for the Chromebox CBX1. Just last month, Erik shared with me a close-up look at the new Kaby Lake Chromebox along with some candid shots of his team prepping the first shipments of the CBX1.
The latest lineup of Chromeboxed from Acer, ASUS and HP have lacked any real coordination around their actual launch dated and as a result, we’ve been left to hunt and peck around the web to find sellers who actually have the devices in hand. HP is the only OEM with in-house availability of their version […]
HP has made good on their delivery date of their latest Chromebox. The HP Chromebox 2 is now listed and available for order at the HP Store although the Celeron and Core i5 models are currently listed as “Out of stock.” As expected, four models are on offer at the HP Store and haven’t seen […]
It appeared that Acer would be the first to get their Kaby Lake Chromebox in the hands of consumers when third-party listings started popping up on the web in early April. Sadly, as with many of these listings, the expected availability of “in stock” units was grossly off the mark.
And then there were three. Our eagle-eyed tipster, George E. recently share with us some preliminary listings of the ASUS Chromebox 3 that turned up on the web and after a more detailed look, he emailed me to let me know that I had listed the new boxes from ASUS incorrectly.
Two down, one to go. Apart from the Celeron offerings from CTL and ViewSonic, three major players in the Kaby Lake Chromebox market are all slated to launch their Chrome OS desktops sometime in the coming weeks. Although Acer has yet to “officially” release the CXI3, it has been up for preorder for a couple […]
HP may be driving the hype train with the Chromebook x2 detachable but let’s not forget, there are a TON of new Chromeboxes heading our way very, very soon. CTL and ViewSonic recently threw their hat in the ring with a couple of Kaby Lake Celeron models aimed at education and kiosks but we haven’t […]
Three months ago, we were desperate for a new Chromebox. Now, we’re having trouble keeping track of them all. Good problem to have for us here at Chrome Unboxed.
Seems like only yesterday we were sitting around pontificating as to why we were in the midst of a massive Chromebox drought. Well, the dry spell has certainly passed. With 8th Gen Kaby Lake boxes on the way from Acer, ASUS and HP, a new device was just announced from a less-likely OEM and this […]
Well, the days of computing announcements happening at CES seem to be all but over. Today, Acer is announcing 3 new devices that add to the slew of new Chromebooks and Chromeboxes announced in the past month: none of which were officially shared at CES earlier in January. I suppose it is the new normal […]
For many of you, this feature isn’t new and likely you’ve been using it for months now. However, for the countless who christened a new Chromebook over the holiday season, we wanted to share the steps on how to enable “Night Mode” or as Chrome OS calls it, the “Night Light.” I like it. Has […]
HP may have beaten other OEMs out of the Chromebox gate but ASUS came to Las Vegas with a surprise up their sleeve and they don’t plan on being outshined. Amidst their ROG lineup, new connectivity solutions and a GIGABIT LTE Windows device, ASUS unveiled some mini-PCs, a new tinker board and the Kaby Lake-powered […]
