While Chromebooks have been coming left and right over the past couple of years, Chromebases haven’t proved as popular. We’ve only seen a select few hit the market but now at CES 2016, Acer is introducing another option onto the market. With a large, 23.8″ display this machine should prove very useful for workstations and households alike. the display is equipped with touch capabilities (optional) and has a 1920×1080 resolution. The Chromebase 24 is even compatible with the VESA mounting standard which allows you to mount it on any standard mount.
Powering this machine is your choice of various Intel processors and up to 8GB of RAM. This new Chromebase also features improved speakers and an updated webcam which can be tilted to suit your needs.
Pricing will vary depending on the model you buy, but Acer hasn’t revealed where it will start as of yet.
