AOPEN releases a tough enterprise-grade Chromebox
AOPEN is pitching its latest Chromebox at buyers who need reliable, consistent operations that Chrome OS can handle at a decent price. The Commercial 2 is rated for Fi rest-rate performance in environments where 24/7 running under trying conditions may be a requirement. AC Power Auto Recovery (APAR) should also help with such demands.
As with most PCs of its form-factor, it can do so while also being slim and compact enough so as not to be obtrusive within a vendor's set-up. To this end, it has an I-mount for installation behind or under other surfaces or equipment. The AOPEN Chromebox Commercial 2 can be used to run 1 4K display at 60 hertz (Hz), or 2 panels of the same resolution at 30Hz.
This Chromebox has 4GB of RAM and a 32GB SSD. It also features Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth for wireless connections; just as well as it also has only 2 USB 2.0 ports (although there is a headphone jack). The AOPEN Commercial 2 comes with the 1.9GHz Intel Celeron 3865U for US$359.99. Alternatively, there is a Core i3-8130u SKU for $619.99. These enterprise-focused little PCs are available on Amazon.com from now.
