Is the Asus Chromebit a good way to turn a TV into a computer?

Episode 1250 (1:41:05)

Bob from Santa Barbara, CA
Asus Chromebit

Bob wants to buy a Chromebit for his TV and turn it into a computer. Is it legit? Leo says it is, but he'll need a keyboard and mouse to use it, and after buying that, it's almost as much as buying a dedicated Chromebook. Leo recommends checking out Anker for inexpensive peripherals. They have one for $20 that includes keyboard and mouse. Any Bluetooth keyboard will work, though. But he should understand that the Chromebit won't be very powerful and TVs don't have as high of a resolution screen as typical computer monitors do.
