Is a Chromebox the same thing as a Chromebook

Is a Chrome box the same thing as a Chromebook? Meaning: will it have the exact same capabilities but be in the shape of a box not in the shape of a netbook?

boxes need an external monitor and keyboard, and a connected mains power supply. Other than that yeah, they are the same.

the Google ChromeBox & ChromeBook is the same concept as a PC & Laptop. The ChromeBox should allow you to store more things on it if needed. Not sure about the Google ChromeBox Specs at this point, but looking for them.

I think the Samsung ChromeBox will have a HDMI port, if it doesn't that will be the biggest fail of the year.

Already answered but yes it seems to be the same thing but no talk of specs yet...rumors are around they will be ARM and super cheap (sub 150).
