It is immediately clear that the Chromebase is all about screen. At nearly 24 inches diagonally, the screen gives you enough space to do a variety of tasks on the device. The 10-point touch screen helps too, making the Chromebase easy to maneuver in a way that is so precise the screen can accept input from all ten of your fingers at once.
You will not have to cram your neck to look at the screen either. With the ability to be wall mounted, or tilted at a -5 to 30 degree angle, there is a viewing angle that will work in any environment. The same goes for the sides where a 178 degree viewing angle is available.
The way you see yourself on the screen is also great with the HD webcam. This webcam can be adjusted horizontally to angles separate from the screen. Chromebase is built to be a great device for those who want to video conference or Skype with its four mics and two speakers.
Not only does the Chromebase have a great screen, it has a great operating system. While many users are accustomed to the Windows and Mac operating systems, the Chromebase uses Google’s operating system. The platform is built heavily on internet connectivity and cloud storage. In essence, the Chromebase uses a large selection of web applications, which means it only has limited access to some popular software. You will want to ensure any necessary software is compatible with the Chrome OS before deciding if the device is right for you.
