Chrome Box has been rattling around the geek community for a couple of days.Chrome box is a mini computer, launched at Google I/O 2012. Chrome box is yet another BYODKM computer, an equivalent to Apple Mac mini. What distinguishes both the systems are primarily the OS, Chromebox comes with chrome OS, google's web based operating system, while mac mini is shipped with OSX Lion. Yet another striking difference is google's decision to completely rely on cloud storage and hence provides no internal storage while mac mini does.
