Google ChromeBook Pixel is now official - here is specs and what I think




So the rumors and leaked video about Google's Chromebook Pixel was true after all. Now it's official and available in Google Play Store. It looks very, very good, beautiful design and high build-quality, but unfortunately it's too expensive. I will never pay so much money for a chromebook that can't do any advanced work like video editing or music making. Yes I know there is some cloud options for doing that but it will take a very, very long time before that will become something more than fun and "hobby" work.
To use professional software like Final Cut Pro X and Ableton Live you need a real computer.

So personally I rather buy the MacBook Air over this, and it's even cheaper.
