Google’s Chrome OS is a browser-based operating system for notebook and desktop computers. Now AOPEN is bringing Chrome OS to the commercial PC space, with the Chromebase Commercial.
It’s a 21.5 inch all-in-one computer with a touchscreen display and Google’s Chrome operating system. The Chromebase Commercial is designed to be used for digital signage, point-of-sales, or kiosk-style operations.
AOPEN and Google announced they were working together earlier this year, and this weekend I spotted the Chromebase Commercial on the FCC website, which prompted me to check the AOPEN website… where it turns out you can request a price quote for the system.
The Chromebase Commercial features a 1920 x 1080 pixel multitouch display, an Intel Celeron N2930 Bay Trail processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0.
It has Ethernet, serial, audio, and USB ports and features an HDMI output if you want to connect a second screen. There are 3W stereo speakers built in, and the system has a mic and webcam, which means you could use it to make video calls.
While the Chromebase Commercial looks a bit like a large tablet, there’s no battery and the system weighs 14.3 pounds, which would make it a bit bulky to carry around.
Since this computer is designed for commercial applications, it comes with a 3-year warranty, supports optional accessories including cash register drawers, and features a durable case design. It can be mounted on a wall or kiosk stand.
