LG is adopting a different take on Chromebooks, after announcing that it will introduce an all-in-one computer based on Google’s Chrome OS at the Consumer Electronics Show in January.

The LG Chromebase is a 21.5-inch widescreen unit — featuring full HD and an IPS display — which comes with a keyboard, mouse and other accessories but can operate independently as a screen.

Beyond just consumers, the target audience includes businesses, with LG touting its potential for schools, hospitality or offices. Indeed, a device like this could be an interesting addition for a hotel — guests simply log-in with Chrome and get all their files, settings and other personalized details on the Chromebase via the cloud.

Certainly, it’s an ambitious project, and one we’ll take a closer look at during CES.
