Google "Sure enough, a product listing provides a lot more detail about the tiny Chrome OS desktop than Samsung gave us in January, including its use of a 1.9GHz, dual-core Celeron B840, 4GB of DDR3 memory, a 16GB solid-state drive and six (not five) USB ports. We haven't seen mention of the promised wireless keyboard and mouse bundle, although the retailer's configuration might reflect a stripped-down trim level: at $330, it's a lot less than the $400 we were quoted at the start of the year." A $400 ChromeOS desktop box? Good luck with that.

4GB of Memory seems a bit much for what's basically a browser kiosk, isn't it?


Visit http://ro.me/ and you might just have an answer for that ;) Even with a recent memshrunk Firefox nightly (dev channel) it peaks over 1.5GB of memory in use.
