Google's Chromebook has been a huge hit as it provides a simple and easy to use computing solution for consumers at an affordable price tag. It may not have all the bells and whistles to match up against high-end competitors, but that isn't a factor as it wasn't designed for this purpose.
It seems Google is at it again, this time partnering with LG (whom also manufactured the Nexus 5) in order to make a spinoff of the Chromebook called the Chromebase. The all-in-one design mimicks Apple's iMac and looks promising thought it is too early to know for sure.
So far we know it will have the following specs:
- Processor: Intel® Celeron® CPU
- Operating System: Chrome OS
- Display: 21.5-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS
- Memory: 2 GB
- Storage: 16GB iSSD
- Ports: HDMI-in, USB 2.0 x3, USB 3.0 x1, LAN
- Accessories: Keyboard, Mouse, Cable Organizer
- Webcam: 1.3 M 720 HD
