I’ll be happy with a Chrome device when there is a native Steam client for streaming games (no I don’t want crouton).

I just got one in from Amazon. I went to most retailers like Harvey Norman and I was met with a blank expression. I heard that the Asus Chromebox is one of the fastest selling items on Amazon and here in Australia retailers put the head in the sand. I am extremely impressed and happy with my Asus Chromebox as I am up and running with it in less than 10 seconds. No longer waiting and waiting for Windows software to wake up.


These should be great for businesses, for workers that can do all their work through a browser. Cheaper upfront and much cheaper to maintain than PC or Mac hardware.


What does it do?


Basically it’s the same as a PC except that you can connect it to the TV rather than a computer monitor and they tend to be cheaper than buying a full size PC.
