LG Announces 21.5 Inch Chromebase

Chrome OS has been on laptops except for the Samsung chromebox series in the early history of Chrome OS. According to the spec sheet, that 21.5-inch 1080p LCD hides an Intel Celeron CPU, 2GB of RAM and a 16GB SSD inside, along with an ports on the back. The computer comes with its own keyboard, mouse, speakers, webcam, USB ports and networking. The device could have a large market with schools, coffee shops, and hotels along with consumers who want a computer that gets things done quickly.

There is not a price tag just yet but Chromebooks have a low price tag. If the Chromebase is low priced the computer could be a big hit with schools who spends millions on computer hardware already. Chrome OS is simple and only operates web apps, but as more services are created and moved online the OS will become more useful. Would you want to have a Chromebase or prefer to shell out more money for a Windows 8 device?
