If you are looking for a cost effective way of upgrading your aging PC, one method that you may want to try is via Google’s new Chromebit PC dongle.
This cute little stick made by ASUS is going to be available in Summer 2015 and will essentially breath life into your old hardware since the stick operates as a mini PC.
The Chromebit specs include a quad-core Rockchip RK3288 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of memory, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and of course Chrome OS.
All you need to do is plug this baby into a HDMI drive on your monitor or TV and you can turn it into a PC. One of the best aspects of this dongle is that it will retail for under $100 USD and that price even includes 4K support as well – highly impressive.
It comes in a variety of colours and we can see it being very useful indeed for first-time PC users, small businesses and schools who just need basic computing tools and internet access.
Chrome OS is already very accessible, but this little dongle could transform your daily lifestyle and you’ll be able to take it with you wherever you go.
Take a look at the video we have included below, which offers a closer look at the Chromebit and the specs included in the $100 package.
