Google Pixel Chromebook video demo

We go hands-on with Google's touchscreen Chromebook

HARDWARE DESIGNER Google's Pixel Chromebook landed on our laps at The INQUIRER offices today, and we got a close look at the device that offers what Google claims is the highest pixel density display on any laptop at present.

With 2560x1700 display resolution, the Pixel's screen is touch optimised, meaning that users can pinch, swipe and zoom between webpages.

Though at first glance it appears quite boxy, Google's Pixel is very stylish, with a minimalist anodised aluminium chassis. However, as a result it does feel quite heavy, weighing just over 1.5kg.

Running Google's Chrome operating system, the Pixel is powered by an Intel Core i5 CPU and has 4GB of RAM. We haven't had a chance to put the Pixel through its paces yet, but check back for a full review soon. µ
