Google have come with its new Chromebook Pixels with amazing look and feel with the 12.85″ display. This time Google works hard to design the Chromebook pixel. You will get the One terabyte Google Drive cloud storage for three years and 100 MB per month for 2 years of mobile broadband from Verizon Wireless on the purchase of Chromebook Pixel, that is amazing deal. The most attractive things about Chromebook Pixel is its design and its 12.85” screen has the highest pixel density of any laptop.
Connectivity: There are two USB 2.0 connections and Mini-Display Port along with a 3.5mm headphone socket and a SD card slot on the right. There’s no Ethernet connection, so if you want to be hard wired, you’ll need a USB adapter. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are available.
Models: There are two models of the Chromebook Pixel; one with included 4G LTE(April 2013) and one that only has Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi model costs £1,049 in the UK and US$1,299 in the US (around AU$1,264), and the LTE model costs US$1,449 (around £962/AU$1,410). With LTE model you will get 100MB a month of bundled 4G bandwidth through Verizon Wireless in the US for two years.
Chromebook Pixel will run on Chrome operating system. Chrome os is the good os because of the speed of shutdown,start-up and less Background apps. Of course the downside of Chrome OS is that there’s a lot you can’t do, in the conventional sense, that you can do on Windows or Mac OS.
