COMPETITION FOR APPLE ?
Introducing the Chrombook Pixel, Google‘s answer to Apple‘s MacBook Air/Retina. The Chromebook Pixel features a machined aluminum body: “vents are hidden, screws invisible, and the speakers seamlessly tucked away behind the backlit keyboard.” Open and close the lid with a single finger thanks to a “finely tuned piano hinge that’s engineered to augment the range of the two Wi-Fi antennas and as a heatsink to help keep the machine cool.”
Boasting 4.3 million pixels, the Pixel brings you “crisp text, vivid colors, and extra wide viewing angles.” The 12.85” screen has the highest pixel density of any laptop. A 0.55mm layer of touch-enabled Gorilla Glass fused directly to the screen gives you “smooth interactions while preserving picture clarity.” An integrated HD webcam, microphone array, and active noise cancellation help ensure that video and audio are “lifelike.” Multi-finger touch, natural scrolling, and all the other gestures you would expect are smooth and precise on the etched glass touchpad.
