LG announced today that it will unveil its 21.5-inch Chromebase computer at next month's Consumer Electronics Show. The all-in-one computer is equipped with a 1080p IPS display, an Intel Celeron processor, 2GB of memory, 16GB of storage, and Google's Chrome OS. The computer ships with its own keyboard, mouse, speakers, and webcam, but it can also be used as a monitor for another PC, according to The Verge.
"While the computer comes with its own keyboard, mouse, speakers, webcam, USB ports and networking, it sounds like it can also still act as a monitor for another PC, thanks to an HDMI input around back. Theoretically, you could use Chrome OS as a quick-booting operating system for simple tasks when you don't want to fire up the full setup."

It is capable of recording 720p HD video and comes with an image
