LG announces Chrome OS powered Chromebase all-in-one PC

7

LG has just announced a Chrome OS powered all-in-one desktop PC which will compete with Apple’s iMac and other Windows-based all-in-one PCs. LG’s Chromebase is powered by an Intel Celeron CPU, has 2GB or RAM, offers 16GB of storage and features 21.5-inch 1080p LCD.

LG’s move to launch a full-fleged PC running Google’s Linux based Chrome OS is a clear sign of market’s losing trust in Microsoft’s Windows platform

Chromebase is a perfect device for average household where a PC is needed for emailing, Facebooking, Googlinge, writing documents, watching movies and playing music. Windows has lost its revelance for an average PC user as most of our computing is happening through a browser and there are close to non desktop-based apps which an avarage user relies on. I can say that because my wife has converted from a Macbook to Chromebook and she is doing everything that she was doing on her Macbook.

Only thing missing at the moment is the pricing and availability of the device.

Share.

    Celeron?

    Granted, it’s Chrome OS, but the Celeron has, and always will be garbage.

    Some of the newer Celerons are actually halfway decent. If you were talking about the late 1990′s, you’d be correct.
