google’s touchscreen chromebook pixel
google has launched the latest of their chromebooks, the ‘pixel’ – this time though, with a touch screen retina display boasting 4.3 million pixels. the 12.85” screen has the highest pixel density of any laptop, implementing a 3:2 photographic format designed for the web. users can organize windows, swipe through apps, and edit photos with tap, swipe and pinch to zoom gestures.
a 0.55mm layer of gorilla glass fused directly to the display provides smooth touch interactions while preserving picture clarity. the device is machined from an anodized aluminum alloy to a tight tolerance, hiding any distracting features; vents are hidden, screws invisible, and stereo speakers seamlessly tucked away beneath the back-lit keyboard for a minimal design experience. the touchpad is made from etched glass, analyzed and honed using a laser microscope for exceptional smoothness and accuracy. like with previous chromebooks, the ‘pixel’ starts-up in seconds, requiring almost zero setup or maintenance – powered with built-in 4G LTE for delivering fast browsing speeds.
