The ChromiumPC modular computer, first unveiled by Xi3 last year, is ready to ship this summer, with an architecture designed specifically for Chrome.

Xi3 has been working on their concept for awhile, and even got some praise back during CES for it. The computer is housed in an aluminum chassis that hold three boards or "modules" that determine the functionality of the machine. These modules are interchangeable, allowing the ChromiumPC to run other operating systems. However, Xi3 designed the system with the cloud especially in mind, and the out-of-the-box set-up will be made to get you online as fast as possible. It's their hope that, as people move to the cloud in greater numbers, they can follow them there with the help of Google and Chrome.

Pricing for the ChromiumPC hasn't been announced yet, but Xi3 has it slated for release in the second half of this year. We'll just have to wait and see.

I am really loving that, and seriously considering it. It was just a matter of time before they made the computers smaller. If they could make monitors so small and thin, then, why not, right?

I am thrilled, seriously how annoying is it when you have a small room to start with and most of it is taken up by a clunky computer desk? Also, half the desks out there do not even feel large enough to fit everything I use. I really love the look of that, it is kind of contemporary in the design.
