Using Google services on a Chromebox vs. Samsung DeX

The best thing about Google’s services is they truly work anywhere. I don’t have to use a specific operating system — or even a specific web browser.

Samsung’s DeX mode is a great way to have a  [Read More…]

The best keyboard you can buy for your Chromebook or Chromebox.

Like any other laptop, your Chromebook works great with an external keyboard. It’s incredibly easy to use an external display, mouse, and keyboard if you work or play from a desk, and Chrome does a great job mirroring to a monitor or having one as an extended display. All you need are the right parts!

Chrome OS supports any USB (wired or wireless) or Bluetooth keyboard.  [Read More…]

We saw some excellent Chromebooks in 2017, but the market for Chromeboxes has been much quieter. However, just in time for CES 2018, HP’s announced its all-new Chromebox G2.
