Acer announced the world’s first Chromebase—an all-in-one desktop running Google’s Chrome OS. Dubbed as the Chromebase 24, the desktop is powered by an Intel Core processor. It has a 23.8-inch Full HD display with a 1,920 x 1,080 resolution, reportedly offering 178-degree wide viewing angles, VESA mount support and 10-point multi-touch capability.

Visually, the Chromebase 24 stands like an iMac and, as Acer claims, is perfect for public spaces, where it can function as a digital signage or a kiosk device. Of course, you are welcome to use this desktop in your room or office.

It’s worth noting that Acer is the world’s leading Chromebook manufacturer, according to Gartner, with over 34 percent market share in the first three quarters of 2015.

Under the hood, the Chromebase 24 has an 8GB DDR3L memory, 802.11ac4 wireless or Gigabit Ethernet functionality, and other goodies. Acer says that the desktop is optimized for video conferencing, thanks to its four digital microphones and an adjustable HD webcam.

“Intel Core processors work seamlessly with Chrome OS to deliver the incredible performance and graphics that consumers and businesses expect from an all-in-one desktop,” said Gregory Bryant, Corporate Vice President and General Manager, Desktop Client Platforms Group, Intel. “With smooth video conferencing, a great HD video experience and ability to multi-task, the Acer Chromebase 24 with Intel Core is an exciting all-in-one design.”

Do note that the specifications, availability, and prices vary according to region. Acer has yet to reveal the details of this promising powerhouse.
