ASUS Desktop PC CHROMEBOX-M004U Celeron 2955U (1.4 GHz) 2 GB DDR3 16 GB SSD Intel HD Graphics Shared memory  Google Chrome OS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Build quality is better than the similarly spec'd HP version.

Cons: It's a little bigger/chunkier than the HP version.
Printing in ChromeOS can be painful if you don't have a PC to setup Cloud Print with your old printer.

Other Thoughts: I bought the HP brand Chromebox first and got burnt by HP's poor quality control (it died in 2 hours). After the RMA I bought this ASUS brand Chromebox and wish I spent the extra $10 in the first place.

It costs a little more but it will actually work.

ZOTAC ZBOX C Series CI520 nano Passive Cooling Mini PC with Intel Core i3-4020Y Dual-core CPU Intel HD Graphics 4200 Barebone System
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Easy setup, fair price, solid build quality.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Turned it on with a USB thumb drive with a Ubuntu 14.04 ISO plugged in and it booted immediately. Fast install thanks to the SSD. The wireless in the specs say just 802.11ac, but it supports 802.11n as well.

Note: It ships from CA, so cross country to East Coast took a while (8 days) using standard shipping.

HP Desktop PC Chromebox CB1-020 Celeron 2955U (1.4 GHz) 2 GB DDR3 16 GB SSD Intel HD Graphics Google Chrome OS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Worked for a whole 2 hours. Maybe it's just a coincidence (bad luck) that everything relatives' or myself buy that is HP brand has issues with the power coard, charging, and/or the power brick.

Cons: Died after a few hours with this message on a white screen during boot "your power adapter isn't giving enough power please use the correct power cord".

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace a burnt out HP nettop for a relative (they were having issues with the power cord and charging; after about a week the motherboard fried). This chromebox has issues with the power adapter as well, luckily they manifested almost immediately so I can return it without issue.
