Today Google has just unveiled their brand new Chromebook Pixel. The rumors and leaks from earlier this month turned out to be accurate, and the Mountain View company has just detailed and launched the next evolution in Chromebooks. The Pixel certainly comes at a price, but has tons of amazing features you won’t want to miss. Read on for more details.

The Chromebook Pixel has been build from top to bottom with ease of use and top-tier quality in mind -“Built for the web”. Add in the simplicity of the Chrome OS and you have quite the machine. Until today most Chromebooks have been budget oriented, but this is taking a completely different approach and aiming right for Apple’s MacBook lineup. Here’s the specs:

The Chromebook Pixel features a 12.85-inch “Pixel” display with a 2560 x 1700 resolution, at 239 PPI – and should look simply amazing. Oh and did we mention that is a full touchscreen display. Yup! It’s rocking a Gorilla Glass 2 protected multi-touch panel and should offer stunning viewing angles. Under the hood you’ll be working with a 1.8 GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, and a 32GB SSD for storage, as well as a 64GB 4G LTE option. That isn’t all either. With your purchase users get 1TB (1000GB) of free Google Drive cloud storage. Essentially putting anything and everything on the cloud. Then you’ll get two USB 2.0 ports, Displayport, and full SD slot among other things.

This is a premium Chromebook here folks. You get a glass-etched multitouch trackpad, back-lit Chrome keyboard, HD front facing webcam and more all weighing only 3.5 lbs.
