Google Brings ChromeOS To The Desktop : Chromebox

Google, in collaboration with their partner Samsung have launched new Chromebook and its first desktop Chromebox today. A lot of you probably haven’t heard of this technology, but it has actually been launched since mid 2011. It is basically a personal computer running Google Chrome OS as its operating system. The devices comprise a distinct class of personal computer falling between a pure cloud client and traditional laptop.

The ChromeOS uses the Linux Kernel, the Chrome browser and an integrated media player. With many apps (from their Web Store) for the user to play around with that range from productivity, games and work, once can use such a device for their everyday needs without having to worry about storage space or syncing of files since its all managed by the cloud. Having a long battery life and a very fast booting (7 seconds) many can actually use it instead of their regular laptops and now desktops. Check out the video below.
