If you have a TV you’d like to turn into a computer – this is the thing that can do it.  At under $85, you can plug this ASUS Chromebit into the HDMI input on your TV and, using a wireless keyboard and mouse, be surfing the internet.

It is really crazy what is being done in an HDMI stick that measures just under 5 inches long.

Installation is as easy as plugging the ASUS Chromebit CS10 into a TV and connecting a bluetooth keyboard and mouse.

Chromebit CS10 gives you the power of a google chromebook in a package you would never is even know is connected.  A true computer which fits in your shirt pocket.

The ASUS Chromebit will connect to your internet provider via WIFI (dual band a/b/g/n/ac) and with the Bluetooth 4.0 connection, the keyboard and mouse will be quick to respond.

Chromebit CS10, like all Chromebooks, will update itself – so it is always running the latest software from Google, so you’ll always have the latest features and virus protection.  That happens at no extra charge for you – and keeping all the “junk” off the computer makes it stay speedy for the life of the computer.

With account based data – the ASUS Chromebit CS10 works great as a shared computer. People log in and out of the device with their own Google account and the data is not shared.  So everyone has their own information for themselves.

“For the money this can’t be beat if you want to turn a regular TV into a smart TV on the cheap”

“Compared to a windows based stick computer like the Intel Compute stick the Chromebit is much easier to install, and very much easier to maintain.”

“The Chromebit does well for what I want it for. Streaming video , basic web surfing, email and being able to look stuff up for her without having to go to the other room to my desktop or running to get my phone.”
