By: Jack D'Ardenne


Yesterday, Google announced its new HDMI stick, Chromebit, which will run Google’s Chrome OS.  Basically, it is a mini computer that plugs into a display’s HDMI input.  The device will be availble this summer, and will be sold for under $100.  It will be interesting to see how this compares to Intel’s Compute Stick.  It will also be interesting to see how these devices could be used in classrooms and meeting rooms.  Specs for the Chromebit are below.

  • Rockchip 3288 SoC (quad-core ARM Cortex-A17 processor and ARM Mali 760 quad-core GPU)
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 16GB of eMMC memory
  • USB 2.0 port
