Chromebook pixel?

A high resolution touchscreen chromebook for just ;) £1049 that provides a very smooth product that I don't think anyone was clamouring for.

Seriously don't see the point. The ms surface wasn't a vanity project, this is, and yet they are comparing it with MBA oO

Google has said that it does not think in terms of market share, but a high-end laptop puts it in direct competition with Apple, particularly with the Macbook Air. Pichai insisted the Pixel offered better specifications for its price.

Pichai said: "It will stand up well against a Macbook Air. Air doesn't have touchscreen or a high resolution screen, so with Pixel you get a lot for your money."


Yeah better specs maybe but precious little to actually do with them?
