The wait is over, the Asus Chromebox is now available for order from Australian retailers. Both the i3 and Celeron versions of the Chromebox are available to order, with prices starting at $299 for the Celeron version and $575 for the i3 version.
The Celeron Chromebox is available from a variety of smaller Asus resellers, with no major retailers offering the Chromebox at this time. Currently you can purchase the Asus Chromebox M039U, which includes a Celeron 2955U, 2GB RAM and a 16G SSD from:
|The Laptop Factory||$299|
The i3 version of the Asus Chromebox has also seemingly arrived, but is again only available from Asus resellers. The Asus Chromebox M041U comes with an Intel I3 processor, with 4GB RAM and a 16GB SSD, but looks like it has an option to purchase with or without a wireless mouse and keyboard.
|No Keyboard/Mouse||Including Wireless Keyboard/Mouse|
There’s free Australia wide shipping available from PCMarket, but GreenboxIT and TechBuy both offer paid shipping or you can of course pick them up from the store. We have one of the Asus M039U Celeron based Chromeboxes for review which should be up shortly, from all reports though it’s darned quick, so you can look forward to that.
