Hands On: Acer Chromebase 24 at CES 2016

January 8, 2016 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Acer announced quite a few new devices at CES 2016 this week. Including a new desktop that runs on Chrome OS. It’s the new Chromebase 24. Which is a 23.8-inch Full HD Monitor that has Chrome OS built in, it’ll come with a keyboard and mouse as well, so you won’t have to worry about that. It’s a great desktop for those that just need or want to browse the web. It does offer USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports as well as a SD card slot that allows you to bring pictures onto your Chromebase 24.

We were able to get some hands on with the Acer Chromebase 24 at CES 2016 this week, and we walked away pretty impressed with this one. While it’s not as portable as a Chromebook, it’s still a great product to pick up, which it’ll be available in the coming months. There’s also no price announced for the Acer Chromebase 24 just yet. But we should know more pretty soon, hopefully. We’ve seen other Chromebase’s from LG and Acer, which have performed pretty well, and we largely expect the same from the Chromebase 24 as well. It’s also the first Chromebase sporting an Intel Core processor inside – typically we have Atom processors inside these.
