powered by the fifth generation intel core processor, the second edition of the google ‘chromebook pixel’ laptop provides improved performance and responsiveness. building upon the first model’s touch screen, the new 12.85-inch display features 239ppi, 2560 x 1700 resolution and intel’s HD graphics to deliver super bright clarity, even in sunlight. weighing just 3.3 lbs (1.5 kg) and measuring 15.3 mm thin, the ‘pixel’ has a small box-like appearance that works with soft, curved edges.

as well as the multi-touch screen, the google ‘chromebook pixel’ is controlled using the backlit keyboard and fully, clickable, etched-glass trackpad. together with the built-in dual band wireless technology and bluetooth 4.0, the portable computer can be used almost anywhere and thanks to its 8-16GB memory, it has the capacity to hold lots of data. the ‘pixel’ is also one of the first devices to debut the all-in-one USB type-C charger, following the apple ‘macbook’ just days before, and will not only power the laptop, but will also energize future smart phones and tablets. this enables it to fast charge, gaining two hours of power in 15 minutes and can be used, unplugged, for up to 12 hours on a full battery.
