Today Google took the wraps off their newest laptop, the Chromebook Pixel, “which brings together the best in hardware, software and design to inspire the next generation of Chromebooks.” The Chromebook Pixel will feature 239 pixels per inch, making it the highest pixel density “laptop screen on the market today.”

Additionally, amongst other things, the Chromebook Pixel will feature:

  • 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 Chromebook Pixel WiFi only version will begin shipping out next week for $1,299 (£1,049 U.K ), while the 4G LTE variant will ship out in the U.S. in April and cost $1,499.
