Google Chromebook Pixel Gets Official

Google Chromebook Pixel Release Date
The new Google Chromebook Pixel has just been put up on the Play Store for purchase. They have two versions available. One is Wi-Fi only with 32GB of storage, the other is Wi-F, LTE and has 64GB of storage.

Google Chromebook Pixel Specs
  • 12.85″ display with a 3:2 aspect ratio
  • 2560 x 1700, at 239 PPI
  • 178° extra-wide viewing angle
  • Gorilla® Glass multi-touch screen
  • Intel® Core™ i5 Processor (Dual Core 1.8GHz)
  • Intel® HD Graphics 4000 (Integrated)
  • 4 GB DDR3 RAM
  • 32 or 64 GB Solid State Drive
Battery Life
  • Up to 5 hours of active use (59 Wh battery)
The battery life isn’t stellar, but looking at what the Pixel offers and does, one wouldn’t expect it to be that incredible anyways. As if those small little bits of tech specs aren’t enough, the Pixel also has a backlit keyboard, fully clickable etched-glass trackpad and an HD webcam.
The 32 GB Wi-Fi only version sells for $1299.00. That price does come with a few little perks though. Google also is giving you 1 TB of Google Drive storage for 3 years. They are also giving you 12 free GoGo inflight Wi-Fi access.
The 64 GB model with LTE inside retails at $1449.00. All the same specs, it just has LTE and more internal memory. You get the same 1 TB Drive and 12 sessions of GoGo Wi-Fi, but you are also giving 2 years of Verizon mobile broadband. Granted it is only 100 MB’s per month, but it is included, just like the CR-48′s had. 

A video of the Chromebook Pixel in action follows below.
