ASUS Chromebox 2-G084U Review

Rating: 8.5.

Here at KitGuru we have reviewed a few Chromebooks in our time, but never a Chromebox. It is with interest, then, that we look at ASUS’ new Chromebox 2-G084U. Featuring a Broadwell Celeron CPU and 4GB RAM crammed into a tiny form-factor, is this a compelling option for someone after the ChromeOS experience?

Competitively priced at £199.99, the ASUS Chromebox 2-G084U also ships with a wireless keyboard and mouse bundle. That means all you need is a monitor to hook the Chromebox up to – ASUS supply everything else, including a VESA mount. That being said, how good is the thing? We take a look at its design, build quality and performance before giving our verdict.
