I am a fan of great notebook screens.  I have some of the best on the market.  Needless to say, the Google Pixel launch caught my eye.  Here’s a pic of the pix with links to the relevant information.  Looks a lot like the Retina Mac.

Anyone buy one yet? It’s only $1449 for the 64GB model. See http://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/devices/chromebook-pixel/. That is probably the most expensive screen on the market.  I’ll pass.

  • Never, If it is somewhere £300 then people can think.

  • Too expensive. Same sticker shock as the Surface Pro, wondering how long it will take for them to be a museum piece of failure history.

  • Not a chance.  This is just a high-res Chromebook, yet it costs more than a 13" MacBook Pro.  Heck, it's only $50 under the list price of a 13" MacBook Pro w/Retina Display.  Does anyone really think that there is going to be a perceptible difference between the screens on a 13" Retina and this 12.85" thing?  Not to mention that the MacBook will be an order of magnitude more useful for everyday computing.  Not to mention being locked into Google's cloud services.  Will people really pay that much to get "scroogled"?
