What customers say about "Key Specs"
ASUS Chromebit (B013C) Quad Core
  • Meanwhile this old device is great for reviewing the morning's news. Also, packs in your shirt pocket for travelling and is easily wiped clean on your return with Chrome's Powerwash.
  • It is as fast as Apple and good for watching youtube, check mail and search web.
  • This has a small processor but like I said you can complete most activities with ease. It does have HDMI so you can hook it up to your monitor or TV.
  • The ASUS Chromebit needs to be updated to include a faster processor & more memory so that it's worth using.
  • A very slow processor that does not allow you to perform multiple tasks simultaneously.
ASUS Chromebit (CS10) Stick-Desktop PC
  • Excellent resolution, great speed, access to thousands of apps
  • I use it primarily as a media device and it plays 1080p 60fps streaming video perfectly. The ARM processor (RK3288) is exactly the same as in my Asus Chromebook Flip. Same clock speed (1.8Ghz) but with only 2GB ram instead of 4GB.
  • It runs 95% of my work/play needs. My Microsoft-based PC is now relegated to just playing games.
  • It runs 95% of my work/play needs. My Microsoft-based PC is now relegated to just playing games.
  • The storage here is mainly meant to download additional application files thru Chrome web store and not meant to download heavy files (mainly videos) . Would you need more storage , you can use the 100 GB available on google drive or a USB attached storage connected to chromebi
  • The chromebit is slow operations overall, the issue I have found is whenever it comes back from sleep, I lose audio.
  • Is very promising since it really can do everything a huge desktop unit can, but it is way too slow in loading pages and searching. It simply does not compare at all to a chromebox.

What customers say about "Features"
ASUS Chromebit (B013C) Quad Core
  • In addition to being thrifty, the Chrome OS is much better than either apple's or microsoft's OSs.
  • Wonderful and worthy little dongle converts your Big Screen TV into a very useful computer screen. This puppy is so much easier to hook up than wrangling a laptop or PC to a TV.
  • Very easy to set up with Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. Great way to convert your HDTV into a computer to browse internet and do many more.
  • A very weak connection to my TV is constantly disconnected, which annoys me very much.
  • This is a great product only for your old monitors/TV that have a native HDMI connection. Cheap HDMI-DVI adapters that only do direct-wire-mappings will probably not work.
ASUS Chromebit (CS10) Stick-Desktop PC
  • If you're not familiar with Chrome OS, it's a device that lets you run basically just the Chrome browser and do almost everything you can on a regular PC using the browser.
  • Works great, on the tip opposite of the HDMI connector is a USB port. You can use this to plug in a dongle I use a Logitech K400 and use the chrome browser to play Netflix, Hulu, and shows from my Plex server.
  • The wifi connection is very good and fast. Perfect use for Netflix, youtube, & gmail
  • Bluetooth is built-in so pair it with any wireless keyboard and mouse and you'll have an extra USB port for your removable memory storage, digitizer pad, or pretty much anything else that's USB compatible
  • The lack of a SD card slot to expand storage beyond the 16GB and being limited to a single USB 2.0 port is pretty lackluster
  • It’s annoying that it won’t work without a Google account. Sometimes it won’t wake up from sleep unless the USB keyboard is disconnected and reconnected.
  • My only real gripe is that the device will not automatically request a bluetooth keyboard after the first boot.
