Google confirmed months of rumours that they are creating a high-end laptop that can directly compete with Apple’s MacBook Air. On Thursday, the giant search engine company announced the Chromebook Pixel. Said to be created specifically for developers and early adopters, the new high-end laptop features large-format, high-resolution touchscreen.
Chrome head SundarPichai said, as quoted by the Guardian: "We want to push the ecosystem and web development forward, so this can be thought of as a reference device, in the same way as the Nexus, that will inspire a whole new generation of devices."
The Pixel features 3:2 ratio or 2560 x 1700 pixel per inch. This is higher than any conventional laptop screens available in the market today. A new Google Plus Photo app, is designed to showcase the screen. This will allow the users to organise and browse their photos offline.
Pixel will be available to order in UK from Google Play for £1,049.
