Google today released an updated Chromebook Pixel, their flagship Chromebook device. Chromebook Pixel was always a proof of concept that Chrome OS can run on high-end Ultrabook like devices. Due to their high price, it never took off outside of Google’s campus. My guess is that the updated Chromebook Pixel’s fate will also be same. While the hardware packs some decent specs like high-resolution touchscreen, a sleek aluminum body, smooth glass trackpad, wide-angle lens, Intel Core i5 CPU with 8GB RAM and a 32GB SSD, it still runs on Chrome OS. Google is trying to use their Android eco-system to bring some of the Android apps to Chrome OS platform.
The most important thing to note is that, Chromebook Pixel starts at $999.
