Today Google announced its newest laptop, the Chromebook Pixel. The Chromebook has the highest pixel density (239 pixels per inch) with total of 4.3 million pixels packed in a 12.85" screen. Here's more info on the Google Chromebook Pixel along with a video explaining the concept of this design:
The body of the Pixel is made from an anodized aluminum alloy to create a smooth and durable surface; vents are hidden, screws are invisible and the stereo speakers are seamlessly tucked away beneath the backlit keyboard. The touchpad is made from etched glass, analyzed and honed using a laser microscope to ensure precise navigation. The Pixel also has powerful, full-range speakers for crisp sound, a 720p webcam for clear video, and a total of three microphones designed to cancel out surrounding noise.
Other aspects of the Pixel include:
Speed: Speed has been a core tenet of Chrome and Chromebooks since the beginning. For Pixel, it's critical that the overall experience, everything from loading webpages to switching between apps, is near instant. Powered by an Intel Core i5 Processor and a solid state Flash memory architecture, the Pixel performs remarkably fast.
Connectivity: The Pixel has an industry-leading WiFi range thanks to carefully positioned antennas and dual-band support. Long-term evolution (LTE) is engineered directly into the machine, delivering fast connectivity across Verizon's network, the largest, fastest 4G LTE network in the U.S. (LTE model optional). It also comes with 12 free GoGo Inflight Internet passes for those times you need to connect while in the air.
Storage: Since this Chromebook is for people who live in the cloud, one terabyte of Google Drive cloud storage is included with the Pixel. This enables you to save, access and share photos, videos, documents, and all of your stuff from all of your devices, from anywhere.
The Pixel comes with Google products like Search, Gmail, YouTube, Maps and Google+ Hangouts. And since it's based on Chrome OS, the Pixel boots up in seconds and never slows down, requires almost zero setup or maintenance, and comes with built-in virus protection. An it stays up to date with automatic updates every few weeks.
