Google is showing off a new kind of device that runs on the Chrome OS. This summer, ASUS will sell a PC around the size of a flash drive with a small price to match – less than $100.

This device can plug into any display with an HDMI port.  You can sync a keyboard and mouse with it via Bluetooth. You’ve got an instant computer almost anywhere you go.

This device could be especially useful for students, enabling them  to carry their computers in their pockets and plug them in when they get to the classroom.  You can turn your TV into Chromebook whenever you need a computer.  The Chrombit has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, but you also have the cloud storage option.

If you’d prefer an Windows option, Intel has announced their own HDMI stick that will turn your TV into a Windows PC. It features Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a USB port plus 32 GB of memory and will cost about $150.

Both devices will be available later this year.
