+ - Google Launches $1,299 Chromebook Pixel, a Touch Screen Laptop ->

Submitted by
rtoz writes "Google has announced about its new Chromebook device named as “Chromebook pixel”.

Unlike previous Chromebook versions, the Pixel is aimed at power users who fully live in the cloud. It will be the first computer Google has made itself, and will come with a terabyte of online storage.

Google products like Search, Gmail, YouTube, Maps and Google+ Hangouts are integrated with the Chromebook pixel which uses Google’s Chrome OS built-in with virus protection.

The Chromebook Pixel has the highest pixel density (239 pixels per inch) of any laptop screen on the market today. Packed with 4.3 million pixels, the display offers sharp text, vivid colors and extra-wide viewing angles.

Google has added touch for a more immersive experience. Touch makes it simple and intuitive to do things like organize tabs, swipe through apps and edit photos with the tip of your finger.

The basic Wi-Fi version of the Pixel will retail for $1,299 in the U.S. and £1,049 in the U.K.
