It will be on display at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES)

Google's Chrome OS is typically found in Chromebook laptops and Samsung's Chromebox desktop series, but the operating system will take residence in a new environment thanks to LG: an all-in-one (AIO) desktop computer monitor.
According to LG, its new AIO -- called "Chromebase" -- is the first to implement the Chrome OS into an AIO, and it will be up for display at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) come January. 
Chromebase will sport a 21.5-inch Full HD IPS display with 1920 x 1080 resolution as well as an Intel Celeron processor of some sort, 2GB of memory, 16GB iSSD and a 1.3 MP/720 HD webcam. Its ports include HDMI-in, three USB 2.0, one USB 3.0 and LAN.
As far as accessories go, it comes with the standard keyboard and mouse as well as a cable organizer.

“Simple to operate for all types of users, the award-winning LG Chromebase computer represents the successful combination of simplicity, power and great design,” said Hyoung-sei Park, head of the IT Business Division at LG Electronics. “LG Chromebase is the wave of the future for desktops, expected to be widely adopted not only at home, but especially in schools, hotels, call centers and other business settings.”
As Park mentioned, LG sees students and businesses (such as hotels) being the main Chromebase customers, and that's because its content is cloud-based. That means anyone can log into any Chromebase AIO and have their specific content available to them.
But it could also be beneficial to individual users who want to use the Chrome OS for a quick boot and use the HDMI port to hook up another PC if they need something beyond simple tasks completed. 
LG hasn't made mention of a price or release date yet, but hopefully more details will be available around CES time.
