Google Just Announced The Chromebook Pixel: Price: $1,299

By on February 21, 2013

Google recently unveil a new chrome book ‘The Chromebook Pixel’. They say it will revolutionize the laptops industry. They were aiming to make laptops simpler that what they are. Goggle focused on making a great designing their laptop by making them thin, fast, and powerful.

“The first thing when you open the The Chromebook Pixel is the screen jumping out at you,” said Andrew Bowers – Group Product Manager.

Of course, it kind of looks like an Apple laptop but mixed with Google touch. In my own opinion, I think it looks like it has lots of potential competing with apple laptops. It was about time that someone gave them a good fight.

The basic Wi-Fi version of the Pixel will retail for $1,299 in the U.S. and £1,049 in the U.K. The Pixel is now available on Google Play and will also be available at select Best Buy locations in the U.S. and Currys PC World in the U.K. tomorrow. The LTE version ($1,449) will ship in the U.S. in April. The other difference between the LTE and Wi-Fi models is that the LTE version will ship with a 64GB solid-state drive and the Wi-Fi version will only have 32GB.

The device spec: It has a 12.85 inch high-density 2560×1700 screen (that’s 4.3 million pixels) with a 3:2 aspect ratio, an Intel Core i5 processor and a whopping 1 terabyte of free storage on Google Drive for three years.
