Maybe, but in that case you could simply get a NUC instead.
On one hand, an equivalent NUC is cheaper at $290.
On the other hand, the ASUS comes with a (small) SSD, RAM, and "a custom wireless ASUS Chrome keyboard and mouse that are collectively valued at $49." The NUC comes with none of those. Together those probably cost more than the $80 difference in price.
On the other hand, you could get a last-generation NUC with an i3 for $180.
On the other hand, there's a lower-end ASUS Chromebox, with a Celeron, RAM, and an SSD, also for $180. (No keyboard/mouse with this one.)
On the other hand, I'm running out of hands!
