Back in December LG announced that it will be embracing the ‘other’ Google operating system – ChromeOS – and announced they would be bringing an all-in-one desktop called Chromebase to market, this morning at their CES 2014 event they advised it would be coming to the US this Spring.

LG have stated that the Chromebase, pictured above, is targeted at consumers and business users alike which LG is describing as “the perfect device” for taking advantage of Google’s online products such as Gmail, Drive, Search, Maps, YouTube, Play or Google+ Hangouts.

The LG Chromebase all-in-one specs include:

  • 21.5-inch Full HD (1920 by 1080) IPS display
  • Intel Celeron processor
  • 2GB of memory
  • 16GB of integrated SSD storage
  • 1.3 megapixel webcam
  • Microphone for video calling
  • Twin 5W speakers
  • HDMI-in
  • LAN Ports
  • USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports

LG are hoping that he Chromebase will be adopted not only at home, but in schools, hotels, call centers and other business settings.

Google have described LG’s Chromebase as “an exciting new form factor” that widens options available to customers for the home, school or office a statement from the company reads.

There is no word on pricing or if the LG Chromebase will find its way to our shores but it certainly is good to see LG bring an all-in-one Chrome desktop and another company embrace Chrome.

Would you consider buying the LG Chromebase? Do you like all-in-one desktops?

My initial thought was that no one would want this, but thinking about the potential for internet kiosks, this would make so much more sense than a Windows box.
