Verge score: 7.5

The Google Chromebook Pixel is a new direction from all the previous Chromebooks we've seen. Instead of the normal budget based affair we're accustomed to the Chromebook Pixel is a premium laptop with premium specs to match. The highlight is the Gorilla Glass-covered screen: with a 12.85-inch, 2560 x 1700 touchscreen panel. With a Core i5 processor — rather than an ARM or Intel Atom chip — as well Intel HD 4000 graphics and 4GB of RAM, this Chromebook should have a similar amount of performance to existing Windows ultrabooks.
