Acer Chromebase
Acer has certainly been leading the charge of late when it comes to ChromeOS. Their Acer C720P was an Ausdroid favourite and they’re releasing more and more Chromebooks, and even entering the Chromebox market. This morning Acer has announced that they’re trying another form factor, announcing the Chromebase – an all-in-one desktop unit with a touch-screen running ChromeOS.

The Acer Chromebase will come with a 21.5″ FullHD resolution 10-point touch-screen, a first for the all-in-one ChromeOS desktop form factor. The machine will be powered by an NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor, which will allow the machine to boot in under 10 seconds. The Chromebase will also include a built-in HD webcam for video conferencing through Hangouts – or whichever application you can get working with the Android Runtime for Chrome Skype< /cough>. The Chromebase will also have twin 3W audio speakers and have a number of ports including a HDMI out, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports and connectivity won’t be an issue with Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0.

Availability is apparently aimed at Q2 for the US, but no further information on rollouts have been shared. We’ve asked Acer Australia for more information.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
