Chromebox to host WE app?

Hey,
I’m thinking about getting one of those Chromeboxes to tinkle with a bit and see if there might be a way to host a WE app.
Any thoughts on this one? :slight_smile:
A little searching tells me I might be able to install Linux on it…?

Asus Chromebox-M018U
It only has 2GB RAM but it seems like it can be easily upgraded.

I do not know about the Chromebox, but there are several threads in the forum about that. Just search for Chromebook.

In particular, this post is extremely positive :

Thanks, Michel :slight_smile:

I think the Gigabyte GB-BXBT-1900 could be a good alternative…

It has a Intel Celeron quad core cpu… they are w.o. ram and hdd
