Asus Chromebit CS10 review: What it's like to have Chrome OS in your pocket

 

Just add a display, keyboard and mouse for a surprisingly handy Chrome-on-stick experience.

Unlike Intel’s Compute Stick or even other Chrome OS machines, the Chromebit is actually an easier sell to a wider variety of people. It’s not necessarily a replacement for a streaming box or a full Windows PC. Instead, it’s a nice complement to the...

Asus Chromebit CS10 Review and Ratings

 

The Chromebit is a cheap and easy way to add smarts to an old HDTV or turn an extra monitor into a Chrome OS-based all-in-one.

Small, cheap, and silent ; Easy to set up

Only one USB port ; Only 16GB of internal storage

What’s not to like? It’s cheap. It’s tiny. It’s silent. It’s easy to set up and offers enough performance for living-room tasks and basic office chores. If you have an old HDTV or monitor collecting dust, the Asus Chromebit CS10 offers a cheap and easy...

Asus Chromebit CS10 review

 

If you have an spare screen or Bluetooth peripherals lying around, then the new Chromebit by Asus could transform them into a fully fledged computer.

The main question about the Chromebit is what would you use it for? If you want to assemble a cheap home PC for basic work and internet duties, plus you have a screen and peripherals knocking around, then it’s an excellent, cost-effective device....

Review: the Asus Chromebit CS10 can't quite replace a PC

 

It's cheap, but can the Chromebit really serve as a fully functioning desktop PC?

... for everyone else, it’s too limited both in power and flexibility to replace a genuine PC.

Asus Chromebit CS10 Review

 

Compact and well-built Silent operation Fast boot times

Weak at multitasking Limited connectivity and offline usability Near-constant Internet needed

The Asus Chromebit is currently the cheapest and simplest way to experience Chrome OS. Google's cloud-based desktop OS makes for an excellent low-cost solution for schools, kiosks or simply as a secondary PC at home, the caveat being that you'll need...

Very fast start up & browsing. Easy to use

Chrome store limited. Shame android apps not available. Then it would be fantastic & probably score 10/10

Asus Chromebit CS10

 

This is no top end PC, but it's not meant to be. For the money it's quick, as it is undemanding in terms of resources as Chrome OS is much lighter than Windows. I would not use it as it as my main PC, but other than that it makes a great additional...

Chrome is restrictive when compared to the large variety of programs available for Windows. But if you go into this understanding from the outset what it does and does not do, it fully meets expectations.

Asus Chromebit CS10

 

Looks great, small, compact. You can install linux. Not bad for something a little faster than a Raspberry Pi I guess. (I have both, and use the Pi more).

Turned it on and it appears for a second then disappears on 2/5 of the TV's I have tried it on. Also, Google sell licences for this to be used as a display system, which cost you an extra yearly fee. As I haven't had chance to use it (as it goes off...
