Google today unveiled the Chromebook Pixel, a laptop that ships next week at a price starting at $1,299.
But is the Pixel worth the money? For $1,299, that's comparable to many laptops on the market, including Apple's MacBook, and a bit of a change for the laptop whose main draw was its value. Google is giving the Pixel a touchscreen and high-density display and hoping users want to live their life in the cloud, according to AllThingsD.
That means that users will have to use the Chrome OS products because the Pixel doesn't support desktop software. Instead, a user will make do with Web-based applications, and is the best possible device for those users, according to Sundar Pichai, Google's SVP of Chrome. And it boasts the most pixels per square inch, even more than Apple's laptop fare.
