Google has got a new Chrome device and it'll make any display with an HDMI port a fully functioning computer. What they've done is shoehorned what is essentially a Chromebook into a device that is smaller than a candybar. Oh, and did we mention it'll only cost you a $100? 

For a Benjamin, you'll get a couple gigs of RAM, Wi-Fi, 16GBs of storage, a USB port, Bluetooth, and a quad-core chip from ARM. It's a quick and easy solution for those of you who are happy with just having a tablet/laptop and having a casual big-screen computing experience in your living room. 

$100, available this summer, more info at
