The HP Chromebox is due for release ‘later this spring’ and will, like its rival, be made available in a range of configurations, likely to be Haswell Celeron-based. HP has said that one version will include a powerful 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor.
Three USB 3.0 ports, HDMI and DisplayPort adapters, and a VESA wall mount will feature as standard across the range.
In a nod to their Chromebook line-up, four different coloured designs will be available, all with obligatory cringe-worthy names: Smoke Silver, Ocean Turquoise, Snow White and Twinkle Black.
HP say that the all-new devices will suit home and business users alike.
