chromebook pixel (1)

Uh oh! The Chromebook Pixel is real, and ready for purchase! Am I using too many exclaimation points?! No, I’m not! This is the moment many of us have been waiting for. Earlier today, Martin van der Mueler posted on Google+ from a Chromebook Pixel. In doing a little digging, Android Authority found the link to order the device from the Play Store (although Google is not taking orders just yet)! So, you’re probably wondering just what the device has in store for us, right?!


The highlights:

  • 12.85-inch display with a 3:2 aspect ratio
  • 2560 x 1700 resolution, 239 PPI, 4.3 million(!) pixels
  • 400 nit screen
  • 178-degree viewing angle
  • Gorilla Glass multi-touch screen
  • Backlit Chrome Keyboard
  • Fully clickable, etched glass trackpad
