The first Chromebox Lenovo is finally on sale in the US. Lenovo ThinkCentre Tiny Chromebox was presented last April and is available starting at $ 200 on the official Lenovo (which shows already sold out) and several other Americans shop online, including Newegg, CDW, Promevo and Great Lakes Computer.

The two variant share the rest of the technical specifications, so both have a form 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, Gigabit Ethernet, four USB 3.0 ports, audio jacks, HDMI and DisplayPort. Overall, it has the same appearance of compact computers with Windows the company, but this model runs on Chrome OS.
The new Lenovo ThinkCentre Chromebox has a very compact design: measuring 178 x 183 x 35 mm and weighs about a kilogram, ideal to fit on a desk is to be mounted behind a monitor or TV with the VESA mount.
At the launch, Lenovo also announced the availability of a “package” with a Lenovo Tiny-in-One 23, a solution that combined the Chromebox with a 23-inch monitor that supports VESA, thus creating a desktop computer to -in-one modular, whose main advantage was to be able to replace the display with a larger one simply by unplugging the Mini PC from the media, but at the time is not yet for sale.
