Intel gets down with Chrome OS in new Acer all-in-one

World first Chromebase with Intel Core processors launched at CES

Acer has launched the world’s first Chromebase all‐in‐one desktop with Intel processors at CES 2016 in Las Vegas.

The Acer Chromebase 24 features the largest screen of all Chrome OS devices on the market, a 23.8‐inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) In-plane switching (IPS) display.

Utilising Intel Core processors, the Chromebase 24 also includes up to 8GB of DDR3L memory, 802.11ac wireless or Gigabit Ethernet.


Acer said the Chromebase 24 is ideal for the video conferencing space as it includes four digital microphones, and an adjustable HD webcam.

All data stored on the Chromebase or in the Cloud are encrypted and protected by its Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2 chip, which securely generates and stores cryptographic keys.

Australian pricing and availability was not available at the time of writing.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
