    Computer device opinion wanted

    This is the ultimate micro computer

    could this be used to run chrome in an office client workstation setup?

    Beware Atom processors. Great little procs, but VERY anemic. They shine as dumb terminals though. (running RDP to access a remote terminal server which does all the heavy lifting)

    Been staring at this all day and finally concluded I'm going to let the mini market evolve yet another year.

    If its on woot, its already a little old. They do closeouts and the like, not brand new stuff. You can get decent mini PCs today. They have matured.

    Still a solid looking little PC.

    I have an i7 based mini PC that is now several years old and it does fine for the kids. (minecraft and various other non FPS 3D games)

    You could also try a Raspberry Pi 3 or 4, running Windows 10 (or Linux) as a low powered Internet machine. It will run Chrome just fine.

    Haven stole my response.

    The new 4gb raspberry pi would make a killer thin client for a terminal server set up. Or if you are looking for a small light weight secure internet browsing machine it should do just fine.

    If that's a bit out of your wheel house and you can have it delivered to me and I'll get it set up for you.

    I have looked at pi for some things but not sure I want to do it for her dental office.

    we have two of these type of mini PCs working now and they’re doing great. This is $120 cheaper than the last ones I bought. Unreal.

    and thanks FMJ, I appreciate the offer

    Can you describe the intended use a bit more? Is this a machine for a receptionist, a digital sign board, record keeping, etc?
