    Perfect for the "native browser problem" with Android TV.

    Just have the Navidia Shield on another input for doing all your YouTube, Netflix, etc., streaming and full selection of Android apps, with up to 4k video and Dolby True HD audio support. Plus, you're synced-in to your existing Google Account and have 3 GB RAM.

    The Chromebit can't do YouTube?

    I'm wondering if this might be a solution for my spare bedroom. It currently has a Logitech Revue connected to an HDTV.. The main living room uses a Chromebox. We don't find the Revue to be as functional as before, even after the recommended APK downloads. Maybe our expectations for a device have increased since the Revue was introduced some 4+ years ago.

    So instead of buying another Chromebox, maybe we can buy just the Chromebit and a new keyboard?

    Maybe someone can use the following information. Instead of buying the Chromebit, one could buy a USB stick and download Neverware's Cloudready onto it!

    Amazonian Consumer says:
    You can also turn an old PC or Mac into a "Chromebook" using neverware's CloudReady on an USB stick (also installable to internal hard drive).

    The software is free and compatibility is very good. Boot to the desktop takes about 10 seconds on my 2009 Asus 15.6-inch notebook computer.

    The old computer needs to be able to be set to boot from USB stick. Computers older than about 2008 should qualify.
