A Full-Functioning PC Disguised as a Chromebox,
This review is from: ASUS VivoPC-VM40B-02 Desktop (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Personal Computers)
At $250, the ASUS VivoPC-VM40B is a dream come true for customers needing a full interfaced desktop in a small, sleek package. Measuring 7.5" x 7.5" x 2.2", this sleek desktop with a spun metal finish allows me to have a nice computer attached to the playroom for both games, movies, and homework on the big screen. With 4GB of memory (upgradeable to 16GB) and 500GB of on board storage, this machine is just right for our playroom.
Powered with a dual core CPU driven by an Intel Celeron 1007U Processor (1.5 GHz), this is an all-around general purpose machine - not a machine geared towards hardcore gamers or video editors where a much faster chipset would be required.
It comes stock with the following connectivity ports:
2 x USB 3.0
4 x USB 2.0
1 x HDMI
1 x VGA Out
1 x LAN
1 x Optical S/PDIF out (Toslink)
3 x Audio Jacks (Line in/Mic in/Speaker out)
Its even Bluetooth 4.0 compliant!
I would prefer to have another HDMI slot, but you can't ask for the world at this price and in this size of a console.
The ASUS VivoPC-VM40B is a nice alternative to a Chromebox for those who need a little more functionality and control. It is quiet and doesn't get too warm during use. A great addition for my family's computing needs.

You say it has 2GB of ram but the description states 4GB. Description incorrect?

Hey Chris, you, and the manufacturer's description, are correct. The ASUS comes with 4GB memory standard. I have since corrected my review to reflect the correct specs.
I would blame my mistake on a million different things, but in reality it was just my own carelessness. Thanks for the heads up and I hope my typo didn't confuse too many people. It really is a decent, compact PC.
