Until now, there has been no way to own a desktop running Chrome OS. The only similar option would be to purchase a Chromebox and hook it up to a sizable monitor. With the new Chromebase, there is an affordable Chrome OS desktop. On Amazon, LG’s Chromebase costs $329, down from $349. It ships with the all-in-one monitor, mouse, and keyboard.
Specifications for the LG Chromebase are pretty good considering the price. The 22-inch display has 1080p resolution and inside is an Intel Celeron processor (2955U) with 2GB of RAM. The RAM is a little iffy, but we’re sure not everyone is throwing a whole lot at a Chrome OS device. There is also a 16GB solid-state drive (SSD), but the cloud will be backing up this machine with the included 100GB of Google Drive storage. On the rear is one USB 3.0 port, two USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI port, and even an ethernet port.
