The idea of all-in-ones running Google's ChromeOS is now firmly established, and Acer is pushing the concept further with its new Chromebase 24. While previous models from LG and Acer have used cheaper chips like Intel Celerons and Tegra K1s, the Chromebase 24 uses proper Intel Core chips, like the sort you'd find in all-in-ones running Windows or OS X. It's also got a larger display than the last generation of Chromebases -- a 23.8-inch 1080p IPS unit with optional touchscreen support.

Elsewhere, the Chromebase 24 can be configured with up to 8GB of RAM, and has 802.11ac WiFi and gigabit ethernet connectivity. Despite the increased power, Acer seems to be selling this as a video conferencing machine: it's got four digital microphones and an adjustable "HD" webcam. Full specs, pricing, and availability are going to vary from region to region. Given what we know, though, it's likely the Chromebase 24 is going to be the most expensive ChromeOS all-in-one to date.
