LG has launched its Chromebase all-in-one (AIO) PC in India, priced at Rs. 32,000. The Chrome OS-based AIO PC was first unveiled
ahead of CES
in December, and also shown-off
at the tradeshow.
The LG Chromebase (Model 22CV241), like the Chromebook line, comes with Google products such as Gmail, Drive, Search, Maps, YouTube, Play, Google+ and Hangouts, and supports Chrome Web Apps from the Chrome Web Store. The Chromebase features a 21.5-inch full-HD (1920x1080 pixel) IPS display and offers a viewing angle of 178-degrees.
The AIO PC is powered by a fourth-generation Intel Celeron processor alongside 2GB of RAM, and comes with a 16GB SSD. It also sports a 1.3-megapixel 720p webcam. The all-in-one computer from LG features built-in 5W speakers. Connectivity options on the LG Chromebase include HDMI, USB 2.0 (x3), USB 3.0 (x1), and LAN (Ethernet). The package also includes a keyboard, mouse, and cable organiser.
LG says the Chromebase also "offers robust built-in security" as it supposedly employs multiple layers of protection. LG is also touting the automatic built-in updates of Chrome OS that reduce "manual maintenance hassles."
"We are pleased to launch the LG Chromebase computer here in India. The specialty of this computer is that it represents a successful combination of simplicity, power and great design, and all types of users can operate it very easily. LG Chromebase is the wave of the future for desktops and we are expecting its wide adoption not only at home, but especially in schools, hotels, call centres other business settings," said Mr. Soon Kwon, MD, LG Electronics India.
