Chromebook Pixel review (2015): less expensive, still impractical

 

Though the Pixel looks the same as its predecessor, it feels like a big improvement, thanks to its tripled battery life and lower price. Chrome OS has come a long way too, to the point where the idea of doing everything online doesn't seem like as...

Beautiful, high-res display ; Incredible build quality ; Great keyboard and trackpad ; Long battery life, charges quickly ; Mix of regular and USB Type-C ports

Chrome OS has come a long way, but still has limitations ; Still feelsexpensive for what it is ; No real change in the thickness or weight

Four years after the first Chromebook came out, the idea of a laptop running the Chrome browser as an OS is still a niche proposition. These things aren't for everyone, and might never will be. That said, the idea doesn't seem as silly as it once did....

Google Chromebook Pixel Review

 

Google's Pixel succeeds as a tool and falls short as a laptop.

Google’s new Chromebook Pixel is a tool. It is designed to handle one thing – the Web – better than any other product. And it’s successful. It renders websites with incredible sharpness, and the Core i5 processor can handle multiple tabs without...

Chromebook Pixel review: another impractical marvel from Google

 

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 functionality.

Beautiful, high-res display ; Incredible build quality ; Great keyboard and trackpad

Limited OS functionality ; Poor battery life ; High cost

Again we reach the dreaded wrap-up section on a Chromebook review. It's simply never easy to classify these machines. In some regards, the Pixel is even harder to pigeonhole than its predecessors. The level of quality and attention to detail here is...

Review: Google’s Chromebook Pixel excels both as a machine and as an idea

 

Being the best Chromebook is easy. Being a great flagship is harder, but the Pixel's advanced features make it just as premium and desirable as any other.

Beautiful, advanced design ; Stunning, high-resolution touchscreen display ; Significant improvements in performance and battery life

Expensive

The Chromebook Pixel is clearly not for everyone, any more than any flagship is. It’s expensive. It pumps much more power than most people need. But as a Chromebook, it’s the best you can get. As a...

Google Chromebook Pixel (2015)

 

The newest Google Chromebook Pixel is luxurious and laden with impressive features, but even if it's the best Chromebook available—and it is—the thousand-dollar price will be a barrier for many.

Premium design and construction. High-resolution touch screen. Full feature set, with new USB-C ports. Intel Core i5 CPU yields impressive performance. Quick-charging battery lasted 12 hours in our tests. Free 1TB of Google Drive storage for three...

Very expensive for a Chromebook. Limited local storage.

Conclusion The newest Google Chromebook Pixel is impressive. It has made dramatic improvements over the previous iteration, with better battery life, new ports and features, and it has the benefit of running a far more capable and flexible version of...

Chromebook Pixel 2015 review: Google's updated Chromebook remains a case study in compromise.

 

Google's new Chromebook Pixel remains an interesting showpiece for its Web-only operating system, but it comes with one big Achilles' heel.

The Google Chromebook Pixel packs a brilliant high-res touchscreen, dual USB-C ports and a speedy Intel processor into a slick shell. It's also a few hundred dollars less than its predecessor.

The Pixel is three to four times the cost of other capable Chromebooks. Chrome OS requires online connectivity for most tasks, and available apps are limited in number and potential when compared to the wide breadth of software you'll find on Windows...

The updated Chromebook Pixel sets the bar for high-end for Chrome OS hardware, but its browser-based operating system imposes far too many limitations to justify its lofty price point.

Google Chromebook Pixel 2015

 

To be fair, Chrome OS has come a long way in the past few years, as Google continues to refine it. And if you live in a browser-based world of Google apps -- Gmail, Google Docs, Google Drive -- the entry-level Chromebooks like the $330-ish Toshiba...

Review: Google Chromebook Pixel (2015)

 

The Pixel will feel amazing to the hardest of hardcore Google fans: people who live in Chrome all day, and heavy users of Google's web...

Beautiful, in a clean-cut minimalist way. Gorgeous screen, with a wonderfully different aspect ratio. Great keyboard and trackpad. Weirdly good battery life

Still too expensive. The it's just a web browser complaint still rings a little bit true. 3.3 pounds is basically an anvil in the laptop world

Chromebook Pixel (2015) review

 

The new Chromebook Pixel is a conundrum. By now, we have a pretty good sense of what a Chromebook is and where it fits into our digital worlds. They're relatively cheap laptops that...

Nice design ; Fast ; Great battery life

Expensive ; A little heavy ; Hard to make Chrome OS your only computer

Chromebook Pixel: Brilliant touch screen, hefty price

 

A gloriously high-resolution multitouch display is the centerpiece of Google's first Chrome OS device, the sleek but expensive Chromebook Pixel laptop.

The slick-looking, Intel-powered ; combines the touch screen support of Windows 8 with the MacBook Pro's high-res Retina display. It also includes three years of free 1TB cloud storage, and has a 4G LTE option.

Pricing starts at a lofty $1,299; Web-based Chrome OS requires you to be online to do most tasks; Web apps can't yet compare to most Windows or Mac software, especially for media-centric activities like video.

Despite impressive hardware specs and solid industrial design, the Chromebook Pixel’s high price and cloud OS limitations make it impossible to recommend for the vast majority of users.
