Google’s Chromebook Pixel 2 will be released in the UK on April 21, available through the Google Play Store and Dixons retail stores.
The Google Chromebook Pixel 2 is nearly upon us; the successor to 2013’s Google Chromebook Pixel which runs Chrome OS – the web-based operating system.
There will be two versions to choose from on release; the £799 base model or the higher-spec £999 model.
So what’s in store? Well, a premium aluminium body, 12.85 touchscreen with 25660x1700 resolution, glass trackpad and a backlit keyboard.
The base model is powered by an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM and a 32GB SSD. If you want more bang for your buck, then opt for the high-end edition which includes an Intel i7 processor, 8GB RAM and a 64GB SSD.
There’s also a wide-angle camera lens and an impressive 12-hour battery, which can get around 2 hours of life from just 15 minutes charge.
While the MacBook offers a single 29W USB-C, the Chromebook Pixel 2 includes dual 60W USB-C ports to allow users to connect two cables at once.
With a beautiful look, competitive specs and a lower price tag than its predecessor; the Chromebook Pixel 2 shapes up as a great alternative for anti-Apple folk seeking a lightweight laptop.
