Google Unveils Chromebook Pixel Laptop
Posted on February 21, 2013
Google announced today the launch of a slick new laptop, the Chromebook Pixel. Google says the new Chromebook offers a 4.3 million pixel touch display. Google says this is the highest pixel density (239 pixels per inch) screen of any laptop currently on the market. Other specs include a 1.8Ghz Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB RAM, two USB ports and SSD flash storage of 32GB or 64GB. Google is also offering one terabyte of Google Drive cloud storage with the purchase of the laptop.
Google also hid speakers and screws out of view to make the device more aesthetically pleasing:
The high-end laptop, which begins shipping next week, starts at $1,299 for the WiFi-only version and $1,449 for the LTE version. Take a look:The body of the Pixel is made from an anodized aluminum alloy to create a smooth and durable surface; vents are hidden, screws are invisible and the stereo speakers are seamlessly tucked away beneath the backlit keyboard. The touchpad is made from etched glass, analyzed and honed using a laser microscope to ensure precise navigation. The Pixel also has powerful, full-range speakers for crisp sound, a 720p webcam for clear video, and a total of three microphones designed to cancel out surrounding noise.
