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.
