Acer has bolstered its Chromebase series with the industry’s first all-in-one (AIO) Chrome OS desktop boasting a touch display.

With a boot up time of 10 seconds, users can gain access to data and documents quickly, plus it also has multiple layers of security built-in with automatic system updates, ensuring sensitive data, such as passwords, are protected.

Acer has partnered with Google and has given customers a complimentary 100GB of Google Drive storage. The Chrome operating system also supports multiple users and accounts, while photos, videos, music and documents are all synchronised and backed up with the user’s Google account.

The Chromebase comes with a Full HD resolution and 178-degree viewing angle display, which also incorporates 10-point technology. Plus, an Nvidia Tegra K1 quad-core processor powers the device, which also helps to keep the Chromebase quiet even when running multiple workloads.

Users can view and watch content across its 21.5-inch 1080p display and make video calls with the built-in HD webcam. It also boasts two 3W speakers, 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 wireless connectivity, and a range of ports including HDMI, USB 2.0 and USB 3.0.

There are also multiple viewing angles, as the Chromebase is VESA-compliant, meaning it can be attached to various VESA stands, brackets, arms and wall mounts.

No pricing has been revealed just yet, but the device will be available during Q2 2015.
