Until now, the Chromebook has been a cost effective way of getting a laptop, with Acer and Samsung building these machines the quality is going to be very good. But now Google have come up with the Chromebook Pixel and it is something very different from the other Chromebooks. The Chromebook Pixel has a 12.85 inch display, Intel Core i5 processor, HD Graphics, 4 GB of RAM and a 32 GB solid state drive (SSD) for storage! The downside is the cost; expect to pay around £1,000 ($1,300) for this Google machine.
