Google Chromebook Pixel - Specification and Price

Google will launch a version with a built-in LTE radio and has partnered with Verizon to offer 100 MB/month for two years of mobile broadband and with GoGo to offer 12 free in-flight Wi-Fi sessions.

Features of Chromebook Pixel
  • For seeing clearly - 4.3 million pixels - each invisible to the unaided eye – work together to deliver crisp text, vivid colors, and extra wide viewing angles. The 12.85” screen has the highest pixel density of any laptop, and a 3:2 photographic format designed for the web puts every one of those pixels to good use.
  • For making contact - Organize windows, swipe through apps, and edit photos with the tip of your finger. A 0.55mm layer of touch-enabled Gorilla® Glass fused directly to the screen provides smooth touch interactions while preserving picture clarity.
  • For the best of Google products - like YouTube, Gmail, Hangouts and Drive - shine.
  • For a better way of doing - Pixel boots-up in seconds and stays fast, requires almost zero setup or maintenance, and comes with virus protection built-in. Best of all, it stays up to date with seamless updates every few weeks. Built-in LTE delivers fast connectivity across Verizon's network, the largest, fastest 4G LTE network in the US (LTE model optional).
  • For precision, inside and out - Pixel is machined from an anodized aluminum alloy to a tight tolerance, leaving nothing extraneous or distracting: vents are hidden, screws invisible, and stereo speakers seamlessly tucked away beneath the backlit keyboard.
  • Backlit keyboard - Backlights in the screen and keyboard respond to both the room’s ambient lighting and how Pixel is being used. For example, when watching a full-screen video, the keyboard automatically dims to an appropriate level.
  • Glass touchpad - The feel and precision of a touchpad is one of the first things you notice about a laptop. Pixel’s is made from etched glass, analyzed and honed using a laser microscope for exceptional smoothness and accuracy.
