Google Unveils Chromebook Pixel: Too Expensive Or Worth the Price?

Posted on the 23 February 2013 by Nrjperera @nrjperera


Google Chromebooks are specially designed for people who likes to work in the cloud. To give those people an extremely powerful cloud experience, Google has announced their next-gen device, The Chromebook Pixel.

According to Google, “the goal of the Pixel is to make the pixels disappear, giving people the best web experience.” Google’s Linus Upson stated on a blog post “With the Pixel, we set out to rethink all elements of a computer in order to design the best laptop possible, especially for power users who have fully embraced the cloud.”

Most Apple and Windows fans call this a too expensive gadget . Yes, $1,299 sounds a bit too expensive. I mean, you could get an Apple MacBook for even less. But, this is different because it’s a Chromebook, and when talking about the specs and features, I believe it’s worth the price.

The Chromebook Pixel comes with a 239 pixels-per-inch display, which is considered as the laptop screen with the “highest pixel density”. And it gets powered by an Intel Core i5 Processor along with SSD flash and free 1TB Google Drive cloud storage(for three years). Isn’t that enough?

Google Chromebook Pixel comes in both Wi-Fi , LTE models and is now available for $1,299 (Wi-Fi) and $1,449 (LTE).
