Introduced this past week on the brand new Google web store, the new Chromebook Pixel will ship out the same week that the new MacBook does, with both devices supporting the new USB-C port.
Weighing 3.3 pounds at 0.6-inch thick, it has a very similar design to last year’s model, but don’t be fooled. The aluminum finish and solid build quality are the only thing that is last year. It comes with 8GB of RAM, with 32GB of SSD, but it also has an SD card slot.
1. Two USB-C ports.
One on each side means that the Chromebook Pixel can charge and be connected to an external display at the same time. The new MacBook only has one.
2. The battery lasts 12 hours on a single charge.
According to Google, anyways. Apple is only boasting 10 hours. Even cooler, the latest from Google also is fast charging, which means a 15 minute plugin will keep you going for 2 hours.
3. It has the latest Intel Broadwell Core i5 processor.
The MacBook only has a Core M processor, which is much less powerful and typically only found on tablets. That means that the Chromebook Pixel is much faster and can handle multitasking.
4. It has a better resolution.
The Chromebook Pixel is featuring 2560 x 1700 pixel resolution, with 400 nits of brightness. The MacBook only has 2304 x 1440.
5. It’s cheaper.
The new Chromebook Pixel will only set you back $999, instead of Apple’s pricey $1,299.
