While it has been an open secret Hewlett Packard is working on a Chromebox, a small boxy device that runs on Google’s Chrome OS. The company didn’t reveal anything specific in terms of hardware save for the processor: an Intel Celeron 2955U or i7-4600U “Haswell” CPU. Now the hardware details have finally emerged.

According to the list (PDF), the device can be configured with 2 GB, 4 GB and 8 GB of DDR3L memory. The Chromebox will also have 16 GB of internal storage and a 3-in-1 SD card reader for even more storage. On the connectivity front, the device will provide Gigabit Ethernet, Wireless N and Bluetooth 4.0.


As seen in the photo, there will be two USB 3.0 ports along with the power button on the front of the device. On the back, there will be two more USB 3.0 ports, HDMI output, DisplayPort output, the Ethernet port and a combo audio-out jack. The left side will play host to the card reader and a security lock slot.

The specs also show that the Chromebox will have four rubber footpads on the bottom, which cover up four VESA mounting holes (100 mm). The device will measure just 4.96 x 4.88 x 1.53 inches and weigh a mere 1.39 pounds, meaning more desktop space for the user. However, by using the VESA option, users can install it on the back of a monitor, removing it from the user’s line of sight.
