Chromebase: LG’s all-in-one desktop that runs Chrome OS


LG’s upcoming Chromebase will run Chrome OS.

LG Electronics has officially jumped into the Chrome OS market. The electronics giant introduced Tuesday to unveil its all-in-one Chromebase computer PC in the upcoming 2014 client Electronics exhibit.

“Simple to function for all types of customers, the award-winning LG Chromebase laptop represents the hit combination of simplicity, power, and great design,” LG’s head of IT trade, Hyoung-sei Park, mentioned in an observation. “LG Chromebase is the wave of the long run for pHs, anticipated to be broadly adopted now not handiest at home, but especially in schools, hotels, call centers and other business settings.”


The Chromebase may display a full HD IPS on its 1080p 21.5-inch screen. It will come with 2GB of reminiscence, 16GB of storage, and an Intel Celeron processor. Also included might be a 1.3-megapixel webcam and microphone for video calling, a 5-watt audio system, a keyboard, and a mouse.

The truth that LG has been working on a tool to run Google’s Chrome OS is not shocking. In January 2012, the company signed a deal with Microsoft,t allowing it to use working machine patents for Android and Chrome O devices. LG has also already partnered with Google to create the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 smartphones.

“LG’s Chromebase is an exciting new type issue that expands the choices to be had to consumers who want a quick, easy and secure computing experience for the home, college or workplace,” Google’s vice president of product administration for Chromebook Caesar Sengupta stated. “LG Electronics makes nice devices that consumers love, and we’re glad to welcome them to the Chrome family.”

There have been recommendations in October that LG was planning some Chrome OS software. It had filed for logos on three names that incorporate the word Chrome — Chrome One, Chrome Desk, and Chrome Station. The three trademarks listed within the instrument category were “computer computers, computers, convertible computers, and pill computer systems.”

Nonet unclear when Chromebase will hit the shopper market or how much it will value. Given the lower costs of other desktops and laptops that run Chrome OS, like Chromebook, the Chromebase will likely not be over-the-top expensive.
