LG is set to announce Chromebase, its first Chrome OS based all-in-one desktops in Las Vegas at the International CES show next month.
The Chromebase desktop is aimed for business and consumer users, which LG mentioned it as “the perfect device” for utilizing Google’s online services like Gmail, Google+, YouTube and Hangouts.
Samsung’s Chromebox also based on the same platform will be the competitor in the market. LG’s Chromebase has been lauded by Google mentioning it as “an exiting new form factor” that would widen the possibilities for consumers at home, school or office. The all-in-one desktop will have a display with integrated system components.
LG also envisions that the Chromebase will expand to users in schools, hotels and business organisations apart from home users, according to the company.
The all-in-one desktop is powered by Intel Celeron processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB of iSSD storage with 21.5-inch Full HD (1920 X 1080) IPS display. LG didn’t reveal the pricing and release date of the product. Other features include a 1.3 megapixel webcam with a mic for video calls, integrated 5W speakers, USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, HDMI-in, LAN, mouse and keyboard.
LG also added that the CPU does not have Intel’s latest processor but is powerful enough to handle web apps, games and graphic with ease.
The company has applied for three trademarks for computers in October with one for the word Chrome as the first Chrome OS based product will be released soon. Google added that it was glad to welcome LG to the Chrome family.
