Google announced a new Chromebook called the Google Pixel. Like the old Chromebooks, this will let you use the Chrome OS to access websites and Chrome apps. The Pixel also has luxury laptop features like a high resolution touch screen, a backlit keyboard, and 1 TB of Google cloud storage (for three years). It's available for pre-order in either Wi-Fi for $1299 or LTE for $1449.
That's a lot of moolah for a netbook, so it's really only the sort of thing you buy if you've already got a Chromebook and have found that you don't really use anything else. Don't get me wrong. I love the Chromebook, but one of the things I love is that it's super cheap. I can't see spending $1299 for one. That said, this is still a better value in my mind than a Surface Pro tablet, even at the higher price point.
