After the rumors of the Pixel had leaked around the internet, and Google stating they had no idea what people were talking about, they have in fact today announced the Chromebook Pixel. The Pixel is positioning itself as a high-end laptop. Google’s is stating it has the highest pixel (oh, I get it) density of any laptop out currently, and yes, that means even your Retina Macbook. There will be two versions of this laptop, a WiFi only version and one equipped with LTE.
The Pixel will be available starting today from Google Play and from Best Buy in the U.S. and Curry’s PC World in the U.K. Pricing is set at $1,299 U.S. and £1,049 U.K. The LTE version will cost $1,449, and will ship in April. Let’s hope they stock these better than the Nexus 4, or else, Google will have plenty on back-order.
