Lenovo debutes ThinkCentre Chromebox
Technology manufacturer Lenovo has just announced the ThinkCentre Chromebox today at its Accelerate 2015 Partner Forum in Las Vegas. The computer’s main selling point is its size, and there is much emphasis on its small form factor. This is something that Lenovo believes will convince schools and small businesses to purchase the device in bulk. The operating system of the Chromebox is Chrome OS. Lenovo chose Chrome because of its simplicity and flexibility, as well as the fact that it is heavily focused on cloud saving and is well suited for web-based educational tools and business applications.
Lenovo stated in its press release that a great advantage of the Chromebox is that it can be placed nearly anywhere, and its ability to be transported easily and connected with a large range of devices makes it a very versatile computer. The purpose of the new offering is mainly to help schools and small companies save space. The specs of the new ThinkCentre Chromebox have not been released yet, the device itself will release in June for $199, and the Tiny-in-One, which includes a 23 inch monitor, will cost $279. With more companies and schools moving towards cloud-based solutions over the past couple of years, Lenovo’s new Chromebox may very well find its niche in the market.
