The ChromiumPC from Xi3 Is the First Desktop Ready to Run ChromeOS

The ChromiumPC modular computer, first unveiled by Xi3 last year, is ready to ship this summer, with an architecture designed specifically for Chrome.

Xi3 has been working on their concept for awhile, and even got some praise back during CES for it. The computer is housed in an aluminum chassis that hold three boards or "modules" that determine the functionality of the machine. These modules are interchangeable, allowing the ChromiumPC to run other operating systems. However, Xi3 designed the system with the cloud especially in mind, and the out-of-the-box set-up will be made to get you online as fast as possible. It's their hope that, as people move to the cloud in greater numbers, they can follow them there with the help of Google and Chrome.

Pricing for the ChromiumPC hasn't been announced yet, but Xi3 has it slated for release in the second half of this year.

I'm going to have to look up more on this. It seems a bit confusing. They're making an OS entirely around chrome?
