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.

Description

The Samsung Series 7 Chronos 770Z5E is a Windows 8 notebook featuring a 15.6-inch 1080p display with an optional 10-point touchscreen and an AMD Radeon HD 8870M graphics chip with 2GB of memory. It has a quad-core Intel Core i7 processor and can be configured with up to 16GB of RAM and a 1TB HDD for storage.
