Google Announces Touchscreen-Enabled Laptop
Google has revealed its latest notebook, called ‘Google Chromebook Pixel’, that will feature ‘retina-like’ display quality and touchscreen technology within its aluminum body frame.
Christened ‘Gorilla Glass’, the 2,560 x 1,700 resolution touchscreen will feature a 3:2 aspect ratio.
Specifications-wise, it features a 1.8GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of SSD storage, 1TB of complimentary Google Drive storage for three years, five hours worth of battery and WiFi and Intel HD Graphics 4000.
If you're wondering about the small digits characterizing the notebook's SSD storage, Google's Senior Vice-President of Chrome assured that that the storage count is low because the Pixel is built for "users who are committed to living completely in the cloud”.
The Chromebook Pixel will have two USB 2.0 ports, and will not be compatible with the USB 3.0 devices. It will also have a Mini Display Port, an SD card reader, a headphone jack, an HD webcam and trackpad fashioned out of glass.
All in all, the notebook is said to be designed for power users and those who are looking for a notebook with a 'premium feel'.
If you're interested, these notebooks will cost between US$1,299 and US$1,449, and can be found online at the Google Play Store.
