The ASUS Chromebox 3 is equipped with Intel Celeron chipset, along with 4GB of RAM and a 32GB SSD. As for ports, the Chromebox 3 has plenty to handle all of your needs. On the front, you’ll find two USB-A ports, along with a 3.5mm headphone jack and a microSD card reader.

All of this combines for a pretty impressive package that gives you a great ChromeOS experience, without taking up a bunch of space on your desk.

But if you already own a Chromebook and want a desktop experience, then this deal on the new ASUS Chromebox 3 is the way to go.

Black Friday has yet to even arrive, but we have been seeing some amazing deals on the best Chromebooks, and now the Chromebox 3 is getting on the action.
