Acer on Thursday unveiled its new Chromebox CXI series, which will be joining the company’s growing Chromebook line-up. The company claims that it is ideal for education, small to medium businesses and budget-conscious users, who want a decent computing device.
Chromebox CXI has a very small footprint, making it ideal of the consumers who want to save space and as the name suggests, it runs on Google’s Chrome OS.
“The Acer Chromebook CXI is an excellent fit for schools and any other institution or business where conserving costs and space are high priorities. Due to the ease of management, the Chromebox can significantly reduce technical support and consequently lower the total cost of ownership,” said Simon Hwang, president of Acer Stationary Computing and Display Business Group.
On the specs front, Chromebok CXI comes with Intel Celeron 2957U processor, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, Gigabit Ethernet and four USB 3.0 ports. It also includes a SD card slot, HDMI, DisplayPort, as well as a 3.5mm audio jack.
According to Acer, Chromebox CXI will go on sale late next month at leading retailers in the United States and Canada. The Chromebox CXI-2GKM model with 2GB of RAM will be sold at $179.99 (U.S.)/ $199 (Canada) and Chromebox CXI-4GKM model with 4GB of RAM will retail at $219.99 (U.S.)/ $239 (Canada).
