And right now, you can get it for just $70, or $19 off at Amazon.
Computer on a stick
Normally priced at $89, this Asus Chromebit CS10 Stick-Desktop PC adds the power of Google ChromeOS to your TV. This comes in handy in you want an internet browser in your living room or a more versatile streaming device instead of a Roku or Fire TV, especially since you’ll have the entire internet within reach and not just a locked down streaming platform.
It connects to your TV (or any computer monitor with HDMI ports) and comes with 2GB of memory paired with 16GB of on-board storage — as well as an additional 100GB of Google Cloud storage — and also syncs via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The stick comes with a USB port for additional storage. This is probably the cheapest and easiest way to add a computer to your home.
“Works perfectly. This browser-on-a-stick does everything ChromeOS can do and does it extremely well,” wrote a five-star reviewer. “I plugged in my cheap-o wireless keyboard and mouse (not Bluetooth) and it worked like a charm. I now have a full computer on my TV.”
It’s really easy to use too: Just plug the little guy into your TV’s HDMI port and sync it to your home’s Wi-Fi network. And that’s it. The Asus Chromebit CS10 will prompt you to pair a wireless keyboard and mouse to it via Bluetooth. You can then login with your Gmail account for quick access to the Chrome browser on your TV.
“Bought this for a family member to replace an old laptop,” added another Amazon shopper. “All they wanted to do was a little email and bank online. We are all happy with this stick PC! Starts and runs faster than the laptop did. Very easy to use for kids and grandparents alike. Loads web pages very quickly.”
It even comes with a cable extender if your TV’s HDMI port is hard to reach, while it also comes with Velcro stickers to attach it to the back of your TV, so it’s out of the way.
At 21 percent off, this Asus Chromebit CS10 Stick-Desktop PC is one of the best ways to add big computing power to your TV. Just add a wireless keyboard and mouse to get Google Chrome in your living room.
“This is a remarkably powerful little Chrome OS PC in a package smaller to a Butterfinger candy bar,” shared a delighted shopper.
