Chromebook laptops, featuring a sleek, thin and lightweight design as well as Google’s innovative Chrome OS, have been getting a lot of attention lately. Anyone familiar with the Chrome browser and all that is available through their web store is no doubt intrigued by the simplicity and design of these laptops. Up until recently, computer manufacturers like Samsung, Acer, and HP have been the ones making up the Chromebook family. Well, now it’s time to introduce the newest member to the family; the Chromebook Pixel.
While it may look much like any other Chromebook at first glance, it features many details and capabilities that truly make the Pixel the best-looking and best-equipped Chromebook out there. Here is some of what sets it apart:
A machined aluminum body with no visible vents, screws, or speakers (The speakers are there, just hidden behind the backlit keyboard) - This seamless design features a piano hinge for easy opening/closing and still has crisp, clear full-range sound
An etched-glass trackpad - Provides for smooth and precise touch and scrolling
Built-in 720p webcam and microphone with built-in noise cancellation - Easily chat with family and friends in 2500x1700 resolution
12.85” high-definition multitouch display - The 4 million pixels in this display make for crisp text, vivid colors, and extra-wide viewing angles - Features a layer of touch-enabled glass for smooth touch interactions
3rd Gen Intel Core i5 Processor - Dual-core processing and 1.8 GHz processing speed
Integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 - Stunning lifelike detail in the graphics
4 GB DDR3 RAM - For easy multitasking
32 GB Solid State Drive - 1 TB of Google Drive Cloud Storage for 3 years
