The new Acer Chromebase DC221HQ series could be the device that makes all-in-one desktops with Chrome OS popular. It has a large, sharp display and a processor that keeps the operating system moving along. The Acer Chromebase’s display measures 21.5 inches and has Full HD (1920×1080) resolution. Perhaps more valuable than image quality for the Acer Chromebase is the device’s versatility from the adjustable stand, which tilts from 15 to 75 degrees, and ability to mount it to a wall. The latter setup becomes useful when paired with the touch-ready model that costs $429 compared to the base model’s $329. Along with 4GB of RAM, NVIDIA’s Tegra K1 processor will likely perform well given its history with other Chrome OS devices.
Acer will begin selling its new Chromebase this month in white and black color options.
Hit the break for images and the full press release.
Acer have been pretty busy lately. It has now officially announced its first Android gaming table, which the Taiwanese company states goes hand-in-hand with its Predator PC’s. The slate, which has been rather aptly named the Predator Tab, is set to go on sale in Quarter 4 of 2015.
Hot on the heals of its CB3-531 Chromebook unveiling earlier today, Acer has now announced two new tablets, which are geared towards students in full time education. The Iconia Tab 10 and Iconia One 8 pack everything a student could possibly need to stay productive both in and out of the classroom.

This is no April Fool’s joke from Acer as the company announced a new Acer Chromebase series of all-in-one computers to join their Chromebook and Chromebox lines.

Moves like these have given Acer 36% market share in 2014 for Chromebook devices. Read more
