Google’s Chromebook Pixel Features a USB Type-C Connector and 12-Hour Battery Life

Google’s promised next-generation Chromebook Pixel is finally here. And, as you might expect, the new Chromebook is better and faster. But Google takes matters further by outfitting a USB Type-C on the new Pixel. Yes, it’s the same technology used on Apple’s new MacBook—a harbinger of things to come. That means lesser chargers to carry. Google also managed to improve its battery life, staying up to 12 hours and charging in about an hour and a half.

But you’re here for the hardware, right? Well, the Chromebook Pixel doesn’t disappoint. The Pixel is powered by an Intel Core i5 processor with an 8GB RAM and 32GB storage, and it sports a 12.85-inch display with a 2,560 x 1,700 resolution at 239 PPI. If the specs aren’t enough for you, there’s an LS version (Google says that LS stands for ludicrous speed) that is driven by an 2.4GHz Intel Core i7 processor with a 16GB RAM and 64GB of flash storage.

The remaining features of the Chromebook Pixel are almost the same, including the design. However, the keyboard is slightly better, and Google added a new wide-angle camera lens, which is nice. Google says that the idea behind the Pixel was to combine the “best in hardware, software, and design.” The basic model is now available in the United States for just $999, a good value for the money. The LS version sells for $1,299.
