Leo's Tip of the Week

Product of the week

LG Chromebase

LG's Chromebase is an all-in-one desktop computer that runs Google's Chrome OS. It includes a 21.5" full HD 1080p monitor, keyboard, mouse, speaker, and HD webcam. It has an Intel Celeron dual core 1.4 Ghz processor with 2GB of RAM. It only has 16GB of local storage, but like the Chromebook laptops, it comes with 100GB of Google Drive storage for 2 years.

The idea of Google's Chrome OS is that you'll store all of your documents and data in the cloud, and the computer itself is simply a browser to access that data. There are also plenty of Chrome apps available, including Gmail, Docs, YouTube, Hangouts, and more. Files and photos are automatically backed up to Google Drive in the cloud.

Google's Chrome OS keeps itself up to date as well, so you won't have to worry about installing updates. It also has built-in virus protection, making it a very safe and simple home PC. This is a great option for anyone who just needs to browse the web, check email, watch YouTube videos, and write documents. The LG Chromebase is very affordable too -- it retails for $349.99.
