It’s not just the fact that it runs Linux on the device that makes the Chromebook so appealing to Linux enthusiasts.
Its specs, too, have a bit of an appeal.
The 15.6-inch Chromebook Pixel has a 1080p display, a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 4GB of RAM, a 16GB onboard storage option and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPU.
The Pixel’s $799.99 price tag is the same as the other Google Pixel devices, so you can’t just swap out the Chromebook Pixel’s battery for a new one, but it will likely last longer than the original Pixel’s.
That said, if you’re looking for a cheap, high-end Chromebook device, the Pixel is worth considering.
Its 1080p resolution makes it more versatile than many competing Chromebooks, and its keyboard is also a bit better than the Pixel’s (it’s a bit thinner than the one on the Pixel 2).
The Pixel is available now at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Best Buy for $799, or you can buy it on Google’s website for $449.99.
The company says it will continue to sell the device as long as it continues to ship the Chromebooks.
