Turn Any Display or TV Into a Computer with the ASUS Chromebit

Imagine this, if you will: You're on vacation. You're tired of sightseeing, so you trudge up to your room, freshly-purchased sadness food in hand, and decide you want to hit Full Tilt and Poker Stars.

There's just one problem: In your haste to get out your front door back home, and distracted by thoughts of all the cool things you'd no doubt be seeing, you left your laptop. And now you have no way to play more poker, and you have a sad face, and all you are left with is your sadness food of choice.

The wizards at Google have teamed up with ASUS and they've come up with the perfect solution: the Chromebit. This little bad boy is an entire Chromebook on a stick. Which means it's an entire computer on a stick. All you need to do is hook it up to a HDMI port (conveniently located in the back of your hotel room television set), link up a bluetooth keyboard and mouse and you are all set: you have a fully functioning computer on your hotel television. Now, you can play online poker while lounging in your bed, wearing your bathrobe and skipping the sadness food in favor of room service.

The nerdy stuff: the Chromebit is powered by a Rockchip 3288 processor, has 2 gigs of ram, 16 gigs of internal storage, wifi, bluetooth and the Chrome OS. Seriously, all you need is a TV. How cool is that?

The Chromebit will be $100 and goes on sale this summer.
