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.
