Chromebook Pixel 2 quietly appears

Screenshot 2015-03-12 07.47.16Apple’s new Macbook was one of the bigger announcements of the week however Google are quietly popping out an updated Chromebook Pixel 2, the second in what is now a line of top end notebooks flavoured with Chromebookiness. There seems to be one big feature being pushed here and that’s the charging method and USB -C port. Bragging that the Pixel 2 can last 2 hours on 15 minutes of charging is quite a feat alongside the Intel  i5 2.2ghz or i7 2.4ghz. There are better storage options also with 32gb and 64gb choices, who said that Chrome was designed to be online all the time? A big boost for any Chromebook is the RAM, 8gb or 16g, these are honestly good specs even for a Windows laptop and as it is running Chrome it is a little like bringing a M134 minigun to a knife fight.  The screen is a beautiful 12.85″ display with a web-friendly 3:2 aspect ratio, 2560 x 1700, at 239 PPI. There is also a 720P HD Wide Angle camera with Blue Glass

Priced at either £799 or £999, this is a little more affordable than last years model and comes with the remarkable ability to charge the device and plug in an external storage device also… in like another beautiful Notebook we saw this week.
