SO. I just saw the new ChromeBook Pixel.

12.85" touch screen at 2560 x 1700. VERY Good!
No Fans. Good!
Backlit Keyboard. Good!
4GB RAM. Good!
Core i5 Processor. Good!
ULV Core i5 Processor. Oh.
Glass Apple Style Track Pad. Good!
All aluminium case. Good!
No USB3. Bad.
Only 32GB SSD. VERY Bad.
Only a 5 hour battery. Bad for this price and product class.
Bluetooth 3, not 4. Bad.
Only comes with ChromeOS with no way to install a different OS. Insanely stupid on a Laptop like this.

Google's asking price?


1049.00

The 13" Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display is exactly 200 more - and you get quadruple the disk space, USB3, Thunderbolt, a Proper Operating system, 8GB of memory and a full speed Core i5 CPU at 2.5GHz with a 7 hour battery. Plus its only 10g heavier and 3mm thicker.

Oh god. Its finally happened. A MacBook Pro actually looks like a bargain against another product.
EVERYTHING I KNOW IS A LIE.


But seriously. OVER A THOUSAND FOR THIS THING!?

At least the Apple make sense price-wise in the thin and light catagory. This chrombook is just outright loopy.
