Please note that in order to take full advantage of Chrome OS, you will need to be connected to the Internet.

Chrome OS
Using Linux as a base, Google designed Chrome OS to work exclusively with web applications. The user interface takes a minimalist approach, which greatly resembles the Google Chrome web browser. Chrome OS was built for people who spend a majority, if not all, of their time on the computer connected to the Internet. The only application that comes installed on Chrome OS is a special Google Chrome web browser with an integrated media player and file manager. All other applications are accessed by adding apps from the Google Chrome Web Store. Since Chrome OS relies entirely on Google's web apps and access to Google's services, it is highly recommended that you connect to the Internet to optimize your Chrome OS experience

    ASUS B013C reviews

    Chromebit is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adequate for Web I'm going to assume you have already done your research on Chrome OS, since you're considering hardware like the Chromebit here. My review is mostly on the hardware itself, and how it performs under my operation. The device is well made; solid, hard outer shell, nice matte texture, a sign of quality product. The lack of an audio-out jack is a bit of a inconvenience, as I have to use my monitor's audio-out for external speakers. The is adequate for small amount of multi-tab web browsing, but will choke if you open too many graphic and video intensive tabs at once, particularly Flash-based HD videos. I had to reboot the device a few times as the machine can't handling all the caching from the websites and crashed. In general, it is just a little slower than my Mac Mini with 8 GB of RAM, but since I'm using it mostly for watching TV shows online, it's good enough. I Don't expect it to work like a full size computer, but I think it just need two more gigs of RAM to really perform well. Overall it is a decent piece of device for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for what I wanted it for Given the low price this seemed like a good device to connect to my TV. Since Chromecast does not currently work with Amazon Prime video, I wanted something that would just take up one slot on the TV and not have to switch between sticks. Probably could have gone with something else like a Roku but the Chromebit provides a full blown Chrome OS based computer as well. Streams well even though only 2GB at least on Netflix and Amazon. Have not tried others yet. I am a bit far from the TV to read the stock print on most screens but Crtl plus + keys make in larger when need be, so overall I am happy. Probably lacks enough RAM and CPU power to be a productivity tool, but that is not what I expected it to be.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy it again. This is a very practical device for accessing Internet, email etc. Easy to set up. Connecting a wireless keyboard and mouse and headphones was straightforward. Any TV with HDMI input can become a great PC monitor. This device is a smart mini PC.
