Google’s Chrome OS has proven itself to be an attractive choice for those looking to pick up an inexpensive notebook that still offers modern features – but what about those looking for the same things on a desktop? Well, with an all-in-one PC to be unveiled at CES, LG has those people covered, too.
Given the fact that Chrome OS is a more limited OS than Windows, Mac, or Linux, the specs of LG’s Chromebase (22CV241) are rather modest. Under the hood is an Intel Celeron processor (no specific model is given), 2GB of RAM, a 16GB iSSD, a 1.3 megapixel 720p webcam, 5W speakers, HDMI, 3x USB 2.0, 1x USB 3.0, and LAN. Included with the PC is a keyboard, mouse and cable organizer.
For its goals, and what’s sure to be a good pricepoint, the Chromebase’s 21.5-inch display looks pretty attractive on paper. It’ll boast a 1080p resolution, and features an IPS panel. I can’t help but wish this display would offer touch-capabilities, but given that’s still a bit of a luxury feature, it’s not too much of a surprise to see it not here.
Other information about the Chromebase (including pricing, we hope) will be revealed at CES, which kicks off in just a couple of weeks.
