Google Chromebook Pixel

The Chromebook Pixel is a laptop at the high-end of Google’s Chromebook family of machines, which all use Chrome OS as their operating system. Priced at $1299 at it was released on February 21, 2013, the machine featured a touch-screen with the highest pixel density of any laptop, a faster CPU than its predecessors in the Intel Core i5, 32 GB of solid state storage. A second Pixel featuring LTE wireless communication and twice the storage capacity is scheduled for release in April, priced at $1449.

Google Chromebook Pixel received a high degree of tech media attention, drawing immediate comparisons to the similarly priced Windows machines and the MacBook Air. “This is the future: high-resolution screens and touch,” said Sundar Pichai, a senior vice president who oversees Google’s Chrome Web browser and operating system. The Pixel, which Google is building without a partner, will cost $1,299 for a Wi-Fi only model with 32 gigabytes of flash storage. A 64-gigabyte machine that can connect on both Wi-Fi and a 4G LTE cellular network will cost $1,499. Google believes Pixel is a better value than the Air, given its higher-resolution screen with touch controls.
