Google Chromebook Pixel is sleek, but can it step up to the plate?

Google Chromebook Pixel
We’re all getting far too used to having touchscreen devices. At least once or twice now, I’ve found myself double tapping my laptop screen and being surprised when it didn’t do anything. Tablets, phones, and music players have moved to this standard, so it’s nice to see that laptops are doing the same.

The Google Chromebook Pixel will definitely catch your eye, as it has a high-resolution screen with 2560 x 1700 at 239 PPI. It has close to a 13” display that uses Gorilla Glass, and a clickable glass touchpad. The built-in camera is 720p, the keys are backlit, and the innards are nothing to snuff at. It has a Intel Core i5 processor, Intel HD graphics 4000, and 4GB of RAM. The side sports 2 USB ports, a mini display port, and a SD card reader. With this $1,300 laptop, they offer one terabyte of Google Drive cloud storage for three years, and 12 free sessions of GoGo Inflight Internet. All in all, a fast, awesome laptop. However, since this can only run the Chrome OS, this means no Photoshop or Final Cut Pro. If you work and play on your laptop, this is a pretty and neat option, but it’s definitely too expensive for how limited it is.
