Australians wanting to get their hands on a Chromebook Pixel can now do so, as Mobicity has begun taking orders.

Mobicity is selling the Wi-Fi Chromebook Pixel for $1,648.90, including GST. As per usual with purchases from Mobicity, you’ll get a 1-year local warranty with the device and an option to upgrade it to a two-year warranty for an additional $65.95. You can expect the total price to be around $1700 as you’ll have to pay a customs fee as well.

Google is not selling the Chromebook Pixel in Australia themselves just yet, but Google Australia said in a statement made to Ausdroid that they would like to make the Pixel available to “more users over time”. In the meantime, Australians will have to settle with importing Google’s latest Chromebook offering.

The Chromebook Pixel sports a 12.85-inch 2560 x 1700 display with 4.3 million pixels. It has a Intel i5 dual-core CPU clocked at 1.8GHz, 4GB of RAM, a 64GB SSD and 1TB of Google Drive storage for three-years.

Google launched the Chromebook Pixel in February. The device is available to buy from the Google Play Store in the U.S. and the U.K. In the U.S. buyers have an option to purchase a Wi-Fi only model and an LTE-enabled model, which is exclusive to the U.S. The LTE-enabled model comes with a free 100MB of bandwidth through Verizon Wireless.
