    Default Asus Chromebit - just revelutionize your old computer!

    Chromebit is a USB device that can change your display into a all-in-one PC. So, don't throw away your old outdated monitor, this tiny device can change it to a smart computing terminal. You have to plug the Chromebit in to a HDMI port. But don't forget to bring your own keyboard, mouse and WiFi connectivity. It costs only $85. What makes Chrome OS best suitable for this purpose is its ability to make better use of limited hardware resource in the PC-on-a-stick form factor. The device is compact and portable which can fit into a pocket. It is much better than carrying a Chromebook with you. But the only disadvantage is that you can't use it on the go as it needs a display, keyboard and mouse/trackpad.

    I think a new revolution is unwinding in IT world when the computer is squeezed in to a USB.

    Interesting, it may actually be the beginning of a new era in the field of computers. But the released technologies not always please the public immediately. For example, the long-awaited Google Glass, but for the price of real utility and real utilility was not something interesting for the consumer.

    Let's wait the next chapters!

    This is very interesting, it appears that more and more companies are researching this, I'm pretty sure Intel are making something like this aswell. It would be very cool to have a "PC on a USB stick" and the portability of this is phenomenal! Even though you do need a display, however you can buy portable displays aswell, or I can imagine you could plug it into a tablet using aOTG adapter.

    Nice. I forgot about one of these. Everyone has a flat screen TV these days, even if small. Very simple to add this device, a cheap keyboard and mouse to learn about computers. They should make an education version and make it dirt cheap.

    Despite looking like an oversized USB key, the Chromebit has the DNA of a desktop. It requires constant power, lacking any kind of internal battery. It needs to connect to the HDMI input on a TV or monitor, and it needs a separate keyboard and mouse, connected via Bluetooth or a USB dongle (Bluetooth seems like the better idea, there's only a single USB port, so you'll need a two-in-one USB dongle or else a USB hub to cover both a keyboard and mouse).
