LG has announced that its Chrome All-In-One (AIO) Desktop, dubbed the Chromebase, will launch in Australia in April, with a suggested retail price of $599. LG is confident that the Chromebase will become widely adopted in home, school and office environments alike, as it represents the future of desktop computing.
For those who missed the announcement at CES 2014, the Chromebase is a ChromeOS machine integrated into a display reminiscent of the Apple iMac in terms of design. Underneath the hood adorned by a 21.5″ IPS display is an Intel Celeron processor, 2 GB of RAM and a 16 GB Solid State Drive (SSD), which is fast becoming the defacto standard for ChromeOS machines. A webcam and microphone are also integrated, meaning that video conferencing with Hangouts will be readily available, and even compatibility with Chrome for Meetings could be possible.
We’re keen to get our hands on a Chromebase to review the hardware for you, and as soon as we do, we’ll let you know. In the meantime, if you’re keen on getting a Chromebase for your home or office, let us know in the comments below!
