Is their any idea if and when the Chromebox will actually be released and any idea of possible price point now that it is getting closer to the release of the Chromebook?

The price of the Chromebox has not been announced. Google only showed a picture and talked very little about it.

Acer will offer a version that begins at $349 for a wifi-only version. A 3G version will be more expensive, though how much hasn’t yet been said.Samsung will offer a wifi verison for $429, with the 3G version for $499.

Thumbs down Why?

The whole point of getting a Chrome OS computer is so that you can you use the web anywhere! Why should I get a chrome OS if I can get a cheaper computor and download chrome. I like the idea of the Chromebook but the chromebox just sounds like a waste of money...

If I get too spoiled by my laptop being so great, I will want my desktop to run the same. I'll be looking forward to the desktop's release.

WOW!

I too hope they make the Chromebox available to the personal user. I never even heard of it, til I just this moment stumbled on this forum thread.

As a person dwelling in a tiny apartment, and no room for a desktop (I was on Web-TV and dial-up for 8 yrs, before getting my beloved 10.1-inch Acer Netbook), I have NO room for a desktop. LOL, I use my Netbook on a collapsable TV tray, in front of my recliner chair!)

So the Chromebox looks small enough for me to possibly accomodate it, and the price is certainly a farsight more friendly to my tiny Social Security retirement income. (True, not portable, but I rarely take my Netbook out of the apartment.)

COOL!

I'm also curious what resolution it could support. Will it be able to run my 27" monitor?
Wow, a 27" monitor? I use a 17" so I can imagine ten inches wider? I think I am going to get one soon just to get the feel.
