    Well there is some good news for Chromebox fans (from the Consumer Electronics Show). Asus will be coming out with a new Chromebox in 2018. (It's supposed to arrive in the first half of 2018 - pricing hasn't been announced yet.) Here is some more information:

    Also HP is coming out with two new Chromebox models aimed at the education market. They're due out April 2018. You can read more about it here:

    The new Chromebox 3 arrived today...using it now.Tested 4k videos on Youtube,no stuttering problem like I had with CN60 I3 chip. Haven't really explored the Android apps yet...anxious to find out what apps will function properly.
