A Powerful Pocket-size Computer

The Asus Chrome bit is a cigar-sized device powered by Google’s incredible Chrome operating system. This means you can literally carry everything from office projects, school assignments just to name a few anywhere, without the constraints of carrying an entire computer. Surf your favorite web sites, save important documents and be more productive with this Chromebit from Asus.

Plug Anywhere

The Asus Chromebit’s size isn’t its only good point. The device uses some clever tricks to accommodate the angles and positions of HDMI connectors on different displays. The available extension cables or bendable Flex Connect HDMI connectors allow you to plug the device anywhere. Additionally, using adhesive stick-on hoop-and-loop, you can easily change the position of the device for easier convenience.

A Perfect Laptop Replacement

The Asus Chromebit outputs full HD graphics performance when connected to monitor and this coupled with its 2GB of memory, 16GB of eMMC storage, dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and both USB and HDMI ports, the Chromebit CS10 performs on par or even better than your conventional laptop. Hook a keyboard and mouse and you have a fully functionally Chrome OS-powered computer.

Processor

Processor Type Processor technology Processor also regarded as the brainchild of a computing system {as the CPU acronym literally translates} is responsible for instruction execution, core system calculations, and system efficiency. Chromebooks typically use power saving chipsets from the likes of Intel, AMD, and ARM-based units while Chromebases and Chromeboxes tend to feature higher-end systems on a chip. Rockchip
Processor Speed The processor speed is the default clock speed of the chipset powering the device 1.8 GHz
Processor Boost the highest frequency the processor can reach when maxed out. Maxed out the sense of the number of processes or programs running before it hits its maximum clock speed. < 2.0 GHz
Processor Cores This refers to the stack of physical cores (multiple independent processing units) on a chipset. It's usually the more the better, but that isn't always true considering that the individual clock speed of processing cores can be a huge factor in determining the overall capability of a processor unit. Quad Core
Processor Model The processor model refers to the unique identifying combination of numbers, letters or both that of a chipset as defined by the manufacturer from the factory. Rockchip RK3288C
Cooling This refers to the means through which the central processing unit of a computer is cooled. An actively cooled chipset requires a fan that intelligently spins on demand while passively cooled SoCs (systems on a chip) are typically of a lower TDP (thermal design power) which essentially negates the need of a dedicated cooling fan. Passive (fanless)

Memory

RAM (Memory) RAM (Random Access Memory) is a type of computer memory that can be accessed randomly, any byte of memory can be accessed without touching the preceding bytes that allows information to be stored and accessed quickly from random locations. RAM is the most common type of memory found in computer systems, smartphones, tablets and other electronic devices. 2 GB
RAM configuration Refers to the maximum RAM capacity of this device up to 2 GB
RAM Type DRAM stores a bit of data using a transistor and capacitor pair, which together comprise a DRAM cell. LPDDR3 SDRAM
RAM speed RAM speed or memory bandwidth is the rate at which data can be read from or stored into a semiconductor memory by a processor. Memory bandwidth is usually expressed in units of bytes/second, though this can vary for systems with natural data sizes that are not a multiple of the commonly used 8-bit bytes. N/A
RAM Slots Refers to the number of RAM slots available for expansion N/A

Storage

Storage Type Storage technology Categorized as secondary storage mediums, these are non-volatile and do not lose data when your Chrome device is powered down. They come in the form of HDD, eMMC, SSD and other form factors and standards in modern computing. eMMC
Base storage Base storage refers to the minimum storage configuration offered with the hardware. 16 GB
Max storage configuration This refers to the maximum storage capacity that comes with this hardware 16 GB
Expandable This refers to removable storage media. In computing, external storage comprises of devices that store information outside a computer. Such devices may be permanently attached to the computer, may be removable or may use removable media.
Technology This refers to the implemented storage technology. SATA

Graphics

GPU GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is a single-chip processor designed to rapidly manipulate and alter memory to accelerate the creation of images in a frame buffer intended for output to a display, This includes things such as lighting effects, object transformations, and 3D motion. Mali-T760 MP4
GPU Memory In computer architecture, there's either dedicated or shared memory and sometimes both. Chrome OS devices primarily utilized shared graphics memory. Shared graphics memory refers to a design where the graphics chip does not have its own dedicated memory and instead shares the main system RAM with the CPU and other components. Shared
Base Clock The refers to the base clock speed of the GPU 600 MHz

Connectivity

Bluetooth Bluetooth is a wireless communications technology for exchanging data between mobile phones, headsets, computers and other network devices over short distances without wires, Bluetooth technology was primarily designed to support simple wireless networking of personal consumer devices.
HDMI HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a compact audio/video interface for transferring uncompressed video data and compressed or uncompressed digital audio data from a HDMI-compliant source device to a compatible computer monitor, video projector, digital television, or digital audio device.
Ethernet Port Ethernet is a family of computer networking technologies commonly used in local area networks (LAN), metropolitan area networks (MAN) and wide area networks (WAN).
Headphone Jack A phone connector, also known as phone jack, audio jack, headphone jack or jack plug, is a family of electrical connectors typically used for analog audio signals. The phone connector was invented for use in telephone switchboards in the 19th century and is still widely used.
USB Type USB cables come in different versions like USB 2.0 and USB 3.0. These standards are primarily of the characteristics of the cable i.e the functions it offers and the speed at which it runs while the type of USB cable in the likes of (USB Type A, USB Type B, and USB Type C) essentially refer to the physicality and design of the plugs and ports. USB C
USB Ports USB (an abbreviation of Universal Serial Bus) is an industry standard that establishes specifications for cables and connectors and protocols for connection/ports, communication, and power supply between computers, peripheral devices, and other computers. 1x USB 2.0

Benchmarks (Not an accurate representation of real-world performance)*

Octane Octane which is Google's JavaScript test suite was released to replaces the V8 benchmark. According to Google, "Octane v.1 consists of 13 tests, 5 new ones and 8 from the original V8 Benchmark Suite."[7] Octane v.2 supplanted v.1, consisting of "17 tests, four more than Octane v1. Development on OCtane has been stopped and is slowly being phased out. That, however, hasn't hindered its popularity. 7707
