Google has unveiled a new Chromebook Pixel notebook featuring an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor, 8GB-16GB of RAM, a 2560x1700 239ppi hi-res touchscreen display, up to 12 hours of battery life, USB Type-C connectivity, and more.

The new laptop follows Apple's unveiling of a 12-inch Retina MacBook which features just a single USB Type-C port. Similar to the MacBook, the USB-C port on the Chromebook Pixel can be used for charging, data, and display.



One charger for all your stuff
These days, packing for a trip means remembering to bring all your different chargers—for your phone, laptop, tablet, watch, etc. We think you should be able to use just one charger for all your electronics. So for the new Pixel, we’ve joined forces with some of the biggest names in the industry to create a new standard for charging, called USB Type C. The Pixel is one of the first products to launch with this new standard, with more Chromebooks and Android devices following suit soon.

Not only does Type-C enable multi-device charging, but it also allows high-speed data and display over the same connector and cable. It’s small enough to work with smartphones, powerful enough to charge computers, and conveniently symmetrical (no more guessing which side is up!). Speaking of symmetry, the new Pixel doesn’t just have one Type C port—it has two, one on each side, so you can plug in wherever is convenient.



Thoughtful design
Like the original Pixel, the new Chromebook has a high-resolution touchscreen, a sleek aluminum body, and smooth glass trackpad. We’ve also made a few other enhancements, including a new wide-angle camera lens.

Of course, the Pixel is also great on the inside. It’s got a powerful Intel Core i5 with 8GB RAM and a 32GB SSD. If that’s not enough for you, we’re making an LS (yup, that stands for "Ludicrous Speed") version that's even faster. And even with the new charger, you probably won’t be carrying it around much, since the new Pixel has 12 hours of battery life. When you do need to top up, it’s fast—you’ll get up to two hours of battery life with just 15 minutes of charging.

Pricing and Availability:
The Chromebook Pixel is available for purchase starting today in the U.S. on the new Google Store for $999 and $1299 for the LS version. Check it out at the link below...

Ya I bet this will flop just like the last pixel they came out with. Good luck Google.

Chrome book should be called useless books! It's not compatible with majority of anything out there except what google has already installed. Worst part it's barely compatible with its own applications. Cheap interface like Android!

It's absolute copy of Mac. Unbelievable. You must create differentiation if you want to be successful in this market.

Woots!!! i5/i7 core(not mobile or degraded M cpu's), 8-16gb Ram, and not just limited to 1 single port where you have to buy an accessory wipes the floor on those Macs whose only selling price is it Apple logo.... Soo much for having a gay ceo...
