The paradox of our time is that electronic devices have become smaller yet more powerful. Acer’s new Chromebox is one perfect example—it’s a powerful beast under the guise of a box. The Chromebox CXI-i34GKM, announced by Acer America today, features a 4th-generation Intel Core i3 4030U dual-core processor, providing more power and energy-efficiency.
Its brawn is buttressed by a 4GB DDR3 RAM, Intel HD graphics, and a 16GB Solid State Drive, the latest model capable of booting under 8 seconds, according to Acer. The Chromebox is housed in a compact chassis, and it supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and up to 32GB of storage via its SD port. The device also has 4 USB 3.0 ports, perfect for charging mobile devices.
Acer says that the Chromebox CXI-i34GKM is designed for consumers in the education and business sector, particularly, those who are fond of using Google’s Chrome ecosystem and apps like Gmail, Google Drive, and Google Calendar. Given the powerful specs, the Chromebox is built to withstand the most demanding computing requirements.
Additionally, the Chromebox is easy to use and pre-installed with nifty web applications; the Chrome Web Store has over 30,000 apps. There’s also an option to avail Google’s web-based Management Console, which allows IT professionals to control a group of Chromeboxes. There’s also a Powerwash feature to quickly reset the Chromebox.
The Acer Chromebox CXI-i34GKM sells for $399.99 CAD, and it’s coming this month.
