It’s been two years since we last saw a Chromebase release, but with the advent of Linux apps on Chrome OS, the desktop form factor has begun to make more sense. This is especially true for the education and business markets, which Acer’s new Chromebase models squarely target.
First up, the Acer Chromebase for Meetings 24V2, part of Google’s new Hangouts Meet hardware partnerships, is specially designed to be used with Hangouts Meet. It features a 24-inch touchscreen display, a 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8550U, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of SSD storage. The Acer Chromebase for Meetings 24V2 is set to launch sometime this summer.
