Google has taken the wraps off its new laptop. The new Chromebook Pixel looks similar to its predecessor with pimped up internals, better battery life at $999. This becomes the most pricey Chromebook ever released. Google has also adopted the new USB-C standard that we saw on Apple’s new MacBook early this week. It’s used to charge the laptop, transfer data, or connect to an external monitor or TV.
On the spec sheet you have :
- A Hasswell new Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM and 2GB of storage.
- Alternatively you can get one with Core i7 chip, 16GB of RAM, and a 64GB SSD.
- A 3:2, 2560 x 1700 pixel touchscreen display
- Two USB-C ports and two Traditional USB 3.0 ports
- 12 hours battery life between charges
- Full-size SD card reader and standard headphone jacks.
- Full-size HDMI port
Both versions of the new Chromebook Pixel are available starting today from Google’s new web store, at store.google.com.
