Asus has announced a Fanless Chromebox that has support for up to three 4K displays. The Asus Fanless Chromebox can be mounted to the back of a display or desk, and looks almost identical to a wireless router.

The Chromebox supports Linux and Windows using the single-core Intel Core processor or multi-core AMD Ryzen processor, and it also has a SD card slot to enable wireless printing, USB 3.0 version-3 support, wireless display conectivity by dongle, and Bluetooth 4.2 support.

These features are on top of 802.11ac Wi-Fi, USB 3.1 type-C, and Intel Wireless Display drivers. Some of these features like Bluetooth print, use separate firmware options.

The available 6" HD panel will run $1,249, and is paired with a 1.92GHz Intel Celeron N2840 or AMD Opteron 7740 quad-core processor that can be flexible for joinace, along with 2GB of RAM.

There are two HDMI ports on the bottom of the display, while there is a standard VGA port integrated into the display panel. The screen is shipping with Windows 10 Pro, and there is an HDMI and VGA charger included.

Included with the Chromebox are nine userspace drivers and 10 Asus utilities. The products are codenamed Project Pepper, and should launch by the end of August.

The new Chromebox will be available for $999 (EU / AU) with 8GB of RAM and DVI to HDMI adaptor. The DynAP Power Squadron Chromebox will be available for $399 (approx. AU), with 32GB of RAM, an optimal DVD drive, a single-core Intel i5-7300HQ processor, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, the main speaker, and there are ten remixable userspace drivers.

(Note: This post is from over a year ago! The treasures include representations of Vikings, Vikings Lothbrok, Icelandic Sagas, Viking Laws, etc. For a little background see this Runequest African exploration. A slightly different posting can be seen here.)

What is a Viking worth nowadays? Probably something like £250,000 at the 2015 Change guide price and even a bigger profit today. Unsurprisingly, acquiring Viking/Viking video metadata today is the result of way too much algorithmic bidding and a little coordination. Thus, I've chosen to explore. Here are a few ways you can get into the world of tracking Viking video metadata.

Psst, this question came about because of a Vôlani quizster hypothesis. Show less info
