Acer has today announced the latest addition to Google’s Chrome OS lineup with a new Chromebase all-in-one desktop with a touch screen. The announcement comes following the company’s introduction of the very first 15-inch Chromebook earlier this year, which like this device, was first of its kind.
The company has also sent invites to an event taking place at the World Trade Center on April 23rd…
Notably, the device is the first all-in-one Chrome desktop that sports a touch screen display, and it packs a full 21.5 inches with a resolution that sits right at 1080p. It’s said to have a viewing angle of 178 degrees, can support up to 10 touch points at once, boots up in 10 seconds, and comes with 100 GB of Google Drive storage completely free.
As for the power behind this 1080p display, the new Acer Chromebase all-in-one packs an Nvidia Tegra K-1 quad-core processor. It also has 3W speakers, an HDMI out port, USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, and the typical connectivity interfaces like 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0
Interestingly, Acer also today sent out invites to an event the company is holding on April 23rd. We don’t have any specific information regarding what the company plans to announce at this event, but the invite says to “discover what’s new across all our product lines, including 2-in-1 convertible notebooks, tablets, monitors, and other smart devices.”
