Samsung Chromebox Series 3

A year ago we talked about it, but now Samsung has introduced a new generation of computers with the ChromeOS operating system. In addition to a laptop, Samsung has also released a miniPC for $329, the Samsung Chromebox series 3. The style and size is very similar to the current Mac Mini. This machine has an dual-core Intel Celeron B840 (Sandy Bridge) at 1.9GHz with 4GB of RAM and 16GB SSD. This nettop includes two display port outputs and analog audio input and output connectors.

The device looks good to use as a HTPC, but we will have to see if ChromeOS can meet the needs of HTPC users.
