Google's Pixel is far and away the nicest Chromebook on the market and rivals the best for build quality, but it's far too expensive for a machine with such limited...

After almost three years, it's still difficult to explain to techno-newbs just what the hell Google's Chrome OS and Chromebooks are exactly.Content will look superb on the Pixel's 2460x1700 high-pixel-density screen.Browser-only OS? No, when we tell...

This is ultimately the best laptop I've owned. It's also the most expensive (I sprung for the 64GB LTE version). However, even though I spent over $1,500 after shipping and tax, this is one item that I have yet to experience any buyer's remorse....

The Pixel Chromebook is a halo product, a showcase product. Google did not plan on generating revenues with the Pixel. For a first stab at designing high-end laptop hardware, it is a solid product. I was skeptical about the value of the Pixel...

Google's content to bring all of Chrome's features to every platform, so that the success of the web as a platform can be available to all. So, if you're not ready, consider the rMBP. If, on the other hand, you're ready to leave all other platforms behind, and set forth with only Chrome by your side, then you'll find no better option than the Chromebook Pixel.

As we've stated throughout this review, the Chromebook Pixel is really the first machine to do Chrome OS justice. Google's careful selection of high-end components ensure a fast and fluid experience throughout, regardless of whether you're watching...

Earlier this year, when Google announced the Chromebook Pixel we all thought Mountain View was trolling us. When it was first leaked, we figured it would sell for about $500-700, since the other Chromebooks available are around $199-300. But Google...

The Chromebook Pixel boasts a gorgeous industrial design and superior display, but it doesn't offer enough functionality or endurance to justify its high...

Geeks are odd creatures, and I should know. They/we spend a great deal of time trying to convince others to adopt technologies they don't need and that aren't practical. The media is swept along by the nonsense – note the hoo-ha over wearable technology...

So today, a nice package from Google showed up on my doorstep. It is the Chromebook Pixel. Now before we get into doing a full fledged review, I figured I'd go ahead and do a nice unboxing and initial thoughts post on the Pixel. Sorta like a teaser for...

Google Chromebook Pixel The Pixel places itself in a unique position . On one hand, the overall quality of the hardware and construction, even down to the speakers, is one of the best in its size class . It's thin without being fragile, rigid without...

The Chromebook Pixel looks and feels like a high quality device, and it foreshadows a revolution in computing. But the price tag is very high for a laptop that is currently so restricted in terms of...

Yeah, we know – it doesn't run Android, and really, it has nothing to do with Android. But it is a Google product, so by default it's at least tangentially related - call it Android's cousin. It's also Google's statement that ChromeOS is important,...

So I've had the Chromebook Pixel ( initial impressions ) in my possession for just over three weeks now, an amount of time I'd consider to be quite substantial in terms of being able to put some final thoughts about it on paper. While my job is to review...

The Pixel takes cloud computing to the next level — but the price should make you think twice before buyingMeet the Pixel. It's beautiful, powerful, filled with the tools the next-generation of the web will need, but it "just" runs Chrome OS. That's...

Simply put, the Google Chromebook Pixel is a testament to what Google, a software company, can achieve when it tries its hand at hardware. It’s an attractive laptop with the best screen we’ve ever seen, plus super-fast innards. But ultimately, what...

Unfortunately for Google the Chromebook Pixel is grounded by the OS, but make no mistake they’ve crafted one beautiful computer. We’ve always had a hard time recommending or giving a thumbs up overall to a Chromebook of any type, except for someone...

Google's Chrome OS experiment strikes off in a bold new direction with a super-premium Chromebook featuring a better-than-Retina display. It's a pleasure to use, but only if you're 100 percent committed to the cloud....
