Watch out, all of a sudden those low end spec Chomeboxes are starting to get a little meat to them. The latest round from Acer feature the new 4th generation Intel Core i3 4030U dual-core processors and up to 8GB DDR3 SDRAM which allows support for 4K displays.

Acer’s low profile CXI Chromeboxes can either ride VESA styleon the back of one of their displays (pictured above w/Acer 4K Display) or sit standalone in very small form factor.

The Acer Chromebox models include the CXI-i34GKM with 4GB memory that’s available for a MSRP of $349.99 and the Acer Chromebox CXI-i38GKM with 8GB memory that’s offered for a MSRP of $399.99. Both have 16GB SSDs with an additional 32GB of local storage available via SD card (And pretty much unlimited space via USB 3)

Featuring multiple accounts and Google Drive access, they’re ideal for any environment where multiple users will be sharing one device, such as classrooms, libraries, hotel business centers and reception areas.”
