LG announces Chromed all-in-one

LG has announced a rather interesting product, or should we say a unique product. The LG Chromebase is the world’s first all-in-one desktop powered by Google’s Chrome OS.

Until now Chrome OS was reserved for cheap notebooks, which were essentially a replacement for netbooks, although there are a few exceptions. The Chromebase is different and it looks quite a bit more serious.

It features a 21.5-inch 1080p IPS screen, 2GB of memory, 16GB of SSD storage and the show is powered by a Haswell-based Celeron processor. In terms of processing power, it should end up somewhat faster than Ivy Celeron Chromebooks, but unlike them it features a proper 1080p screen.

It also features a USB 3.0 port, three USB 2.0 ports, along with Ethernet, Wifi, HDMI and the usual array of AIO accessories, such as a keyboard and mouse. There is still no word on the price, but it should end up cheap.

This is a rather surprising move on LG’s part. Chrome OS is not exactly a popular choice for home and office desktops, but this is changing. The low cost of Chrome systems is making them attractive in some niche markets, e.g. some small businesses and education.
