Acer Chromebase 24 takes its name from the large IPS screen 23.8-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) touch, with support for up to 10 contact points. And ‘an all-in-one, but his equipment hardware reminiscent of a high-end Chromebook: Intel processors up to the Intel Core models (probably Skylake, but we have not yet sure), maximum 8GB of RAM DDR3L, 802.11ac WiFi and Gigabit Ethernet. Rounding out the technical details, we also find an array of four digital microphones and an adjustable webcam for video conferencing.
