Asus Chromebox M004U


The Asus Chromebox M004U is a great alternative to buying yet another cheap Windows desktop and a steal for the price.

Inexpensive. Compact. Quick booting and loading. Full desktop-class browser. Lots of USB ports, HDMI, DisplayPort. Syncs bookmarks and settings via Google. Few malware worries.

Only 16GB local storage. Keyboard and mouse not standard.

The Asus Chromebox M004U is certainly a better system than the only other Chromebox we've reviewed, the pricey Samsung Series 3 Chromebox (XE300M22). The Chromebox M004U offers faster USB ports, a newer Celeron processor, HDMI, and a more compact...

Asus Chromebox


The key benefits for Chromeboxes and their mobile counterparts, Chromebooks , are that they boot in seconds; they have built-in virus protection that's automatically updated, as is the whole OS; they're secure and can easily be managed; and there is an...

The Asus Chromebox puts the Cloud-based world of Google's Chrome OS into a compact, attractive black box. For its low starting price, you get a decent performance for everyday tasks and a good assortment of ports and connections.

You need to supply your own keyboard and mouse, which might not be as easy as it sounds. Only 16GB of storage might turn off some potential users, while power users will want to step up to the Core i3 version.

If you're looking to get started in the world of Chrome OS, the Asus Chromebox is a very good starting point--so long as you don't mind bringing your own peripherals.

Asus Chromebox M004U review: Web-based life in desktop form, just add peripherals


This vehicle for web-based browsing, streaming, and computing can take a bigger display, a mouse and a keyboard—or slip into your media center.

Good-enough performance ; Four USB 3.0 ports ; Compact design, plus mounting bracket

Desktop design ; The Web, but little else

Although its lack of portability is a bit antiquated, the M004U's performance is perfectly adequate to the task at hand: surfing the Web for less.

ASUS Chromebox Review


I see a lot of potential in Google's Chrome OS. Even today, I have no issues recommending the platform to friends and family with basic computing needs but who want something more traditional than a smartphone or tablet.

As I mentioned at the beginning of this review, I’m a fan of Chrome OS. The OS isn’t flexible enough to function as a replacement for my needs, but for someone who basically needs a terminal to Gmail, Facebook and the internet in general - Chrome OS...

Asus Chromebox M004U


The good news is that most users report that it's compatible with a wide variety of wireless and wired peripherals. The other issue is that at the time of this report, retail availability remains scarce. It's still back-ordered at many sellers, and...

Very inexpensive, Suitable for the way many people use their home computers, Easy to use, once you get used to Chrome, Viruses and other malware not an issue, for now

Will only run programs and apps designed for the Chrome OS, Works best with a solid Internet connection

Ok for what it does, but artificial limits.


Fast enough. Does web browsing well. Price. keyboard, mouse, monitor, all work fine.

The biggest problem is that it forces you to have a Google/Gmail account. I got this for my grandmother who uses it exclusively for her Yahoo e-mail. Something happened to the automatic log in and it started asking her for her password again (after I...

Great product, easy to set up and easy to move


I recommend that Chromebox, be sure is watch you need and enjoy!

Great controls, fast to drive, best to personal use or simply to stream on your tv. Use a wireless keyboard and All is done!!!

Interface like a tablet so you have to upload apps not downloading files. Limited uses

Great for the price


For a living room computer that you can surf the internet on, this is pretty good for the money but I wish it was a little more powerful and would pay $50 more. I would also pay $100+ more for dual monitors. If you are running 10 tabs with Youtube...

- Great value

- Would pay more for faster model
