chrome base by LG

LG has announced that the first all-in-one Chrome OS PC, the Chromebase, will launch in the US later this month for $349. 

LG Chromebase SideThe 21.5-inch device, which features a full HD IPS display, dual-core Intel Haswell CPU and 2GB RAM, will be sold through Amazon, Newegg and Tiger Direct, among other online e-tailers, from May 26. Pre-orders will go live on May 12 from $349.

A custom mouse and keyboard is also included in the price.

While the 16GB of onboard storage is a tad small — especially for a desktop PC — Google is, as they do with all new Chrome OS devices, offering 100GB of free Google Drive storage. Hooking up external hard drives is easy thanks to 3 USB ports. You’ll also find a built-in SD card reader, a pair of 5 watt speakers and HDMI in should you wish to use the display for other devices.

Thomas Lee, senior vice president of LG Electronics in the states, says “Google’s suite of programs, ability to update software and cloud-based storage allow the LG Chromebase to offer a simple, modern computing experience.”
