4 small computers ready for mass enterprise deployment

John Brandon | July 23, 2014
Today's businesses can't run without computers, but not every user needs a high-end tablet, laptop or tower. Here are four options for enterprises that need to roll out a lot of small desktops to a lot of users.

Google Chromebox for Meetings: Easy Videoconferencing

Weight: 1.3 pounds (approximately)

Dimensions: 4.9 by 4.9 by 1.6 inches

Starting at $999, this palm-sized mini desktop includes an HD video camera, an omnidirectional microphone with speakerphone and a remote control. They all work in tandem for a low-cost videoconference system that uses Google Hangouts or other online video apps. The base model runs on an Intel Core i7 processor and uses the Google Chrome OS. For enterprise deployment, you can pay a yearly $250 maintenance fee for remote management and support. There are four USB 3.0 ports (two on the front and two on the back). Finally, not running local apps on Google Chromebox for Meetings means no local viruses.
