In Short

Google has brought a refresh of the Chromebook Pixel, making just about everything better and keeping the high-end feel of the price tag. The 2015 model offers a duo of USB C ports for charging and data transfer, a pair of USB 3.0 ports for backwards compatibility, an SD card slot and a 3.5 mm audio port. Available in a core i5 version with 8GB of RAM and 32GB of SSD storage for $999, or a core i7 model with 16GB of RAM and 64GB of SSD storage for $1299, the newest version of the Pixel is still the most expensive Chromebook you can buy.

Features like an aluminum chassis, backlit keys and a 13-inch 2560 x 1700 multi-touch display (at a web-friendly 3:2 aspect ratio) make it one of the nicest laptops you'll ever come across. Of course, it runs the latest version of Google's Chrome OS, which always brings mixed feelings and reviews.

If you're looking for a very high-end laptop and are all-in with Google and their services, the Pixel might be what you're looking for.
