HP revealed Thursday (Feb. 6) that it plans to release a Chromebox of its own this spring following Asus’ recent Chromebox announcement. The mini desktop PC promises to convert any monitor into a Google Chrome PC for home or business use.

The set-top box form factor of the HP Chromebox supports standard keyboards, mice and displays for use as an alternative or replacement desktop. “This petite little package can also snugly fit into your home theater, and it’s small enough to pop into a travel bag (in case you wanted to set up shop while on vacation.),” HP said in a blog post Thursday. The compact and portable Chrome OS box comes in four color schemes--Smoke Silver, Ocean Turquoise, Snow White and Twinkle Black.

Connectivity capabilities include HDMI, DisplayPort, Bluetooth and four USB 3.0 ports. It runs on Intel’s Haswell processor and a Chromebox for Meetings version features a 4th generation Intel Core i7. Other than a U.S. release date window and select features, the full list of specs and pricing details of the HP Chromebox are unknown at this time. HP encourages potential customers to sign up for updates at its official HP Chromebox website to receive notifications on availability, pricing and product details.
