LG to launch Chrome OS-based all-in-one at CES LG has announced they will be introducing an all-in-one based on Google's Chrome OS operating system.
The company will unveil the computer at the upcoming CES event next month.

Dubbed the "Chromebase," LG has included a 21.5-inch 1080p IPS display and will sell with a full keyboard, mouse and other accessories, but can also be used independently.

Perhaps most notably is that the computer runs on Chrome OS, Google's operating system which for the most part requires an Internet connection as offline function is minimal.

"Simple to operate for all types of users, the award-winning LG Chromebase computer represents the successful combination of simplicity, power and greatdesign," said Hyoung-sei Park, head of the IT Business Division at LG Electronics. "LG Chromebase is the wave of the future for desktops, expected to be widely adopted not only at home, but especially in schools, hotels, call centers and other business settings."

There will be much more details available next month.

Try supporting these things.. I work in IT and some of those that bought them and think they are a cheap laptop bring them into work and complain when they cannot run the software, connect to the printers, and have limitations on the internet due to our firewall and content filter. If one more person asks me why they cannot install office on their Chromebook I am gonna scream.
