So the touchscreen Chromebook Pixel was not just a rumor, but a real thing! It is the first Chromebook designed by Google itself. It's called Pixel because it is the first chromebook with a retina-like display (2560x1700 resolution) with 239 pixels per inch (PPI). The ultrabook uses pixel doubling to make everything look sharp and crisp, much like Apple's Retina MacBook Pro.
Pixel has an anodized aluminium body, glass touchpad, backlit keyboard, hidden vents, Intel i5 processor and 4GB of RAM. "The touchpad is made from etched glass, analyzed and honed using a laser microscope to ensure precise navigation. The Pixel also has powerful, full-range speakers for crisp sound, a 720p webcam for clear video, and a total of three microphones designed to cancel out surrounding noise," informs Google.
Google also includes 1TB of free Google Drive Storage for 3 years.
