Google Release The Chromebook Pixel

Chromebook Pixel - Ongoing IssuesSo it turns out that the rumours were actually true as Google release it’s high end Chromebook, the Pixel.

The success of the Chromebook in the UK has we are sure been a huge shock to some.  Chromebooks now represent more than 10 percent of notebook sales at Currys PC World.  We are not shocked about this and experienced first hand how hard it was to get hold of one from the shops.  Always out of stock!  Another interesting fact is that the Samsung Chromebook has been #1 on Amazon’s bestseller list for laptops every day since it’s U.S. launch 125 days ago.

The Samsung Chromebook has been #1 on Amazon’s bestseller list for laptops every day since it launched 125 days ago in the U.S., and Chromebooks now represent more than 10 percent of notebook sales at Currys PC World, the largest electronics retailer in the U.K.

So what does the Pixel bring to the market?  Well it’s certainly not aimed at the lower end, or even mid range.  This home grown product is aiming straight for the top coming in at a surprising £1,049.  So what does all that cash get you?  Well they’re selling it mainly on the sleek design and an amazing high def touch screen.

For seeing and touching

A spectacular view
4.3 million pixels – each invisible to the unaided eye – work together to bring you crisp text, vivid colours, and extra wide viewing angles. The 12.85” screen has the highest pixel density of any laptop, and with a 3:2 photographic format that’s designed for the web, you can put every one of those pixels to good use.
At your fingertips
Organise windows, swipe through apps, and edit photos with the tip of your finger. A 0.55mm layer of touch-enabled Gorilla® Glass fused directly to the screen gives you smooth interactions while preserving picture clarity.

So let’s take a quick look at the promo video:

So will people go for this?  Yes they will, but a small number of people.  This is defiantly a high end machine that is going to strike a lot of appeal, but it’s not what the Chromebook is about.  The Chrombook is supposed to be a very affordable device which is almost instant on, syncs with the cloud and if broken is easily replaceable.  The perfect web enabled device.  The Pixel is more like a MacBook without the more functional operating system and local applications.

We can’t wait to get our hands on one and we hope that the Pixel does well, but this device is by no means going to be the way Google gets it’s operating system spread further across the market.

You can purchase your Chromebook Pixel from the Play Store and find out more information on the official Google Chrome Blog.
