Google announced a the new Chromebook Pixel today following recent rumors of them producing a high-res laptop. The Pixel does everything the last Chromebook did – browse the web – but it’s strength is it’s 12.85-inch, 2560 x 1700 touch display, which pits it against Apple’s Retina Display MacBooks.
The Chromebook Pixel, which is made out of anodized aluminum, has an Intel Core i5 1.8 GHz dual-core processor, 4GB of RAM, Intel HD Graphics 4000, 32GB of storage, and a generous 1TB of free Google Drive storage for 3 years, as well as 12 free sessions of GoGo® Inflight Internet. For $150 more, you get 64GB of storage built-in and LTE connectivity, in addition to WiFi which you get on the base model.
The Pixel retails for $1,299 for 32GB of storage and $1,449 for 64GB plus 4G LTE and it’s available today in the Play Store. The 64GB model will ship in April.
