Bottom Line

The Lenovo ThinkCentre Chromebox is cost effective desktop running Chrome OS. Designed for students and small businesses it offers decent hardware but the storage space is very limited when not connected to the internet.

The Lenovo ThinkCentre Chromebox is a bestselling 2015 Chromebox that has been praised for its low price, its compact size and for its 4GB of RAM. But the tiny eMMC flash storage means that it is best suited to small businesses and home environments with a steady connection to the Internet. Running Chrome OS, the Lenovo ThinkCentre Chromebox is also limited by the apps that it can run. If you are looking at running basic tasks such as web browsing, word processing and Skype, then the Lenovo ThinkCentre Chromebox is worth looking at for its price.

    The Lenovo ThinkCentre Chromebox Tiny Desktop is a dependable, quick machine that costs a little extra for more power than most Chrome OS users likely need. Still, it should appeal to business users on a budget.

    The Lenovo ThinkCentre Chromebox doesn't exactly inspire, but if you or your employees need simple online access, it performs well for a very small investment.

    Lenovo brings Chrome OS to desktops in a compact form factor. The Chromebox Tiny joins Lenovo's Tiny-in-One ecosystem, allowing users to create a modular all-in-one desktop. The micro PC form factor of the Chromebox Tiny means you can position the Chrome PC on your desk, or you can snap it onto the rear of the optional ThinkVision monitor to create your own Chrome AIO PC with Lenovo's signature business-friendly design.
