Google has unveiled the fanciest new laptop in the Chromebooks lineup called the Chromebook Pixel.
Chromebooks were designed to make computing simple and secure, running on Google Chrome OS as its operating system. It is designed to be connected to the Internet and utilize cloud services rather than traditional locally installed applications.
The goal of the Pixel is to make the pixels on the screen disappear, giving the best web experience. The screen has the highest pixel density (239 pixels per inch) of any laptop screen on the market today, including the new Apple Macbook retina displays.
The Pixel’s body is made from an anodized aluminum alloy, vents are hidden, screws are invisible and speakers tucked away beneath the backlit keyboard, all traits of a highly refined and well engineered computer. It is powered by an Intel Core i5 Processor and a SSD making loading webpages and switching between apps nearly instant.
Both WiFi and LTE (with Verizon) versions are available. The WiFi model is priced at $1,299 and the LTE model is $1,449 and available at select Best Buy locations.
