The Asus Chromebit is one of the world’s smallest computers. Yes, I said it’s a computer! This device is as small as a memory stick, but within it packs the power and punch of the Chrome operating system. The possibilities are endless for this portable little device that plugs directly into any HDMI compatible monitor or TV, instantly creating a full browsing experience with all the G Suite apps and tools you’ve grown to love and depend on. However, the best part about the Chromebit may just be the price point! Priced at less than $90, the Asus Chromebit is something deserving of a second glance.
Why choose Chromebit over other similar devices?
The Chromebit runs on Chome OS which allows you to do anything you can do on a Chromebook or Chromebox: manage your Gmail, access and edit your Google Drive, surf the internet on Chrome browser, or utilize any of the other G Suite apps. You can also watch your favorite shows in high resolution using any of your video subscription services, YouTube videos, and even unsupported browser pages which is something you can’t easily do with streaming media sticks. That’s because it’s a computer and not just a streaming media player. Another great feature of the Chromebit is the ability to access your files on another system via the Chrome Remote Desktop. Using this feature, you can always have access to important presentations, images, or videos on another device.
The Chromebit contains a Rockchip RK3288 QuadCore Cortex processor, 16GB of SSD storage, a USB 2.0 port, and an HDMI plug. It has Bluetooth 4.0 so you can easily connect your wireless accessories to it. The device also includes 100GB of free Google Drive storage for 2 years and is always up-to-date Chrome OS.
Chromebit is the missing link in your marketing department
Chromebits have become especially popular for use in kiosks and businesses for its ability to serve as beautiful, multi-media based digital signage. Using Chromebit to manage this task can save you money and time when compared with printing signs for your business. The great thing about digital signs is they can be easily updated whenever you want. Now, that is something your printed signs can’t do!
