You can read the reviews on BestBuy.com. One thing people mention is that if you are going to print you need to have a printer that is Google Cloud Print compatible. Then you just have to take into consideration what applications you use. If you use anything that is only compatible with Windows then you will be out of luck.

I use one connected to my bedroom TV. It works well for streaming. I agree with the previous comment that printing is an issue, but I have other computers to print from.

Default Chromebox or Chromecast

Thanx both
I dont trust reviews because majority is paid. Now I prefer chromebox, but Im thinking between these two it will only be used as "couch device" for media casting on tv.

If you have other computers attached to printers then you can set up Google Cloud Print and print to them from your (any) Android device.

My issue with that is that the computers have to be awake and running the Chrome browser for Cloud Print to work. I don't always remember to leave Chrome running on another computer.

I have an Asus Chromebox. I do not use google cloud print, but am I able to print to my printer via wireless network.

The nice thing about the chromebox is it's completely upgradable. I have 6 gigs of ram in mine and I could upgrade the SSD if I wanted too.

I bought a $13 Dell keyboard for chrome and kept using the wireless mouse I already had.
