You read our earlier post, right? We shared all the official info about the Chromebook Pixel, including the link to purchase it. Well, if that didn’t get you all giddy, this will!

What we have here is the official video for the Chromebook Pixel. Not a leaked video, but the real deal from the real source. What we see is a Chromebook, all grown up. It’s sleek, it’s modern, and it’s amazing. We were all curious if what we had seen prior was the actual Chromebook Pixel, or even if that was the official name. We had a lot of question marks surrounding the product, but today has given us the proof we need. It’s real, it’s here, and we want one… badly.

Don’t take my word for it, though. Sit back, click that “Turn off the lights” extension on your Chrome browser, and hold a bucket under your chin for the drool. Put the cursor over the loop on the bottom left of the video, because you’re going to want to see this 5 or 900 times.

    Is Google going to claim the originally leaked video and put it on their channel as well? They should. It’s obviously official.

    4:3 aspect ratio? What the hell?

      Actually 3:2, if I’m not mistaken.

    I watched a couple of guys talking about a computer with a high resolution display. Turned to look at my MacBook Pro. “Been there, done that”. Got enough pixels on my screen, no drool in my bucket.

      high-resolution, 3:2, touchscreen… I mean, come on, it doesn’t justify the steep price, but it’s not just “been there, done that”.

    Yup, still about 400% more than I’m willing to pay for a fancy dumb terminal.

    What’s about the price? It has almost the same specs as the $1199 MacBook Air. The main difference, instead of a 13″ 1440×900 screen, it has a 12.85″ 2560×1700, 400nits touch screen (a big plus). And instead of 128GB SSD it has only a 32GB SSD. But storage depends on the size of the programs. If Chrome OS programs are 10% smaller, you would have a lot more storage than the MacBook Air. But that I don’t know. Furthermore you get 1TB cloud storage for 3 years.

    And all that for $100 more (Wi-Fi only) than the MacBook Air. I think that if the machine had OS X or Windows 8 a lot of people where running to the stores. So the price is right for what you get. If you want it for much less, you are spoiled.

    The whole issue is probably Chrome OS. Maybe most people would ask, what can I do with it. I do. That’s an issue where Google marketing needs to be working at.

    Can WIndows8 be installed on it? If not, I’ll keep my money.
