    Hi guys,

    Looking at a chromebox to replace my current mediacenter.

    Price, convenience, speed are major factors, but what would settle it for me would be being able using google playstore, because well, apps.

    I see that chromeboxes aren't being advertised as play store enabled, as opposed to some chromebooks, but then again i see people on amazon stating that their chromebox does run playstore apps.

    So, what's the bottom line? Does anybody know which, if any, chromeboxes run playstore apps? A list of sorts would be handy, as are ofcourse personal experiences or explicit advertising from some chromebox that i haven't found.

    Thanks in advance!

    Thx, yeah i've found that one, but planned, beta, and kinda hard to get versions of the chromebox:/

    Ahwell, maybe too soon, i'll keep an eye on these potentially awesome mediacenters
    thx again.

    After reading Mr. Hildebrand's review of Chromeboxes I discovered, among other things, that the A-Open Chromebox Mini currently supports the Google Play store.

    I have two questions:

    Is the A-Open a full-blown ChromeOS Computer? Amazon.com says it's only a Media Center. What's the difference?

    Amazon.com says the A-Open is not available for International shipping. Since it's made in China, and I live in the U.S., does that mean I can't get it shipped to me?
