The Chromebook Pixel is a Chromebook manufactured by Google. It was released on Feb 28, 2013, with significantly high end specs, compared to other Chromebooks. However, it received much criticism due to its high price. It is the high class version of the Chromebook, set to compete with Apple's Macbook Pro and Microsoft's Surface Pro. Running Google's Chrome OS and optimized for Google services such as Drive, Gmail and Google+, it is "for the best of Google."

CriticismEdit

Many have critisized the Pixel for being overpriced, having too little storage, a short lasting battery, and being very limited, because of Chrome OS. While many of these are valid complainants, the Chromebook is intended for work in the cloud. Therefore, it does have some slight limitations. Many professional journalists have said they could work fine in a Chromebook.
