The Chromebook Pixel

Google Air

Google Inc., a media, internet, software and advertising company, does hardware. The Chromebook Pixel is the newest high-end notebook from Google dedicated to power users and early adopters who embraced cloud philosophy.

The Samsung Chromebook has been #1 on Amazon’s bestseller list for laptops every day since it launched 125 days ago in the U.S.

But who actually needs Chromebook ? Those who need to be constantly online and who are on the go - We can call them '' The power cloud users ''

If the entire world was your coffeeshop, if you were a fully empowered road warrior, where would you work?

Main points:

- the highest pixel density (239 pixels per inch) of any laptop screen on the market today,
- touch makes it simple and intuitive to do things like organize tabs, swipe through apps and edit photos with the tip of your finger,
- 720p webcam for clear video,
- the backlit keyboard,
- Intel® Core™ i5 Processor and a solid state Flash memory architecture,
- WiFi,
- 4G LTE network,
- one terabyte of Google Drive cloud storage,
- built-in virus protection,
- Google products like Search, Gmail, YouTube, Maps and Google+ Hangouts are integrated,
- The WiFi version ($1,299 U.S. and £1,049 U.K.), the LTE version ($1,449),
- giant glass trackpad,

Media reactions:

Computerworld : a beautifully designed laptop with a gorgeous, state-of-the-art touchscreen display and a generous amount of cloud storage

PC Magazine: It looks fantastic, and purchasing a Pixel may be an investment in the future, as Google adds more functionality.

All Things D: The Chromebook doesn’t have some of the power and graphics capabilities of the MacBook, and only runs Web-based apps, which aren’t as robust as native desktop apps. Factor in the high price, and it might be a tough sell.
