Back in February, Hewlett Packard announced its first Chromebox and now it’s finally here. Available from HP with a starting price of $179, this little Chrome OS-powered desktop features a 1.4 GHz Intel Celeron 2955U dual-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, Bluetooth 4.0, an SDXC card reader, HDMI-in and four USB 3.0 ports. HP’s Chromebox, is ideal for enterprise users or casual types looking to take Chrome OS for a spin.

But if you’re looking for a little more bang for your buck, there’s a $199 upgrade that ships with 4GB of RAM, or a beefed up model with an Intel Core i7-4600U Haswell processor and up to 8GB of RAM starting at $629. However, if this is your first experience with Chrome OS, you might want to start with HP’s entry-level box.
