ASUS Chromebox 2-G084U Review

Comes with wireless keyboard and mouse.

4K playback is jittery.

If you know someone who just wants a small and stylish device for emailing, typing documents and streaming videos, this ASUS Chromebox 2-G084U would make a great gift.

Great Computer

 

Yes

Speed to start, seconds. Great video...no slowing. No issues with updates. No worries with virus. Works with lots of webbed software on google webstore. Lots of connections, small footprint. Nice compact keyboard and mouse

Some Microsoft software doesn't work. Would like skype to work, but it does have hangouts which works well.

Bought as a replacement for my old LG Chromebase. Seamless transition, one of the benefits of having everything in the cloud.

Nothing to dislike

Very simple to setup and use Completely silent Starts almost instantly Surprisingly speedy for such a low specification

Keyboard isn't back-lit Mouse is a bit cheap Can't run Android apps (yet!) Certain Chrome apps like Skype and VLC don't have full functionality

Easy to set up. Small footprint on desk. Supplied keyboard and mouse are great. Good range of connects although more USB ports on rear would help,wireless keyboard and mouse dongle uses one and web cam takes up second. If don't need a full windows...

Scanning documents is not an option although printing is fine. Can't attach a DVD or CD Rom to play CD's or DVD's.

Asus Chromebox CN62 G084U

 

Easy to setup and use. Ideal if you want a cheap desktop, but most do stuff on the web

Not really. Wouldn't be appropriate if you needed, say, Windows apps

Asus Chromebox CN62 G084U

 

Small, quiet, cool running device with low power consumption, that offers very fast web browsing & has user upgradeable RAM & local storage SSD - Fabulous. So much better than an "all in one", like the lg chromebase, which has a mediocre screen (for an...

Nothing except perhaps the cost of the higher spec CPU models.
