USA, Chromebook | $399
The Pixel is the first chromebook by Google also this is the my first chromebook. Full aluminum chassis it's done by CNC process, noise cancelling mic with high-resolution display. Yes, Sounds too much it's only for chrome OS. But it's meaningful product to Google because it's their first premium chromebook they've never had. In the years to follow, Samsung and hp and there's more manufacturer were trying to announce the premium chromebook. Now they compete actively in tablet markets. It has minimal design. The matte silver chassis and the very solid keyboard layout and key cab design. It offers a tactile typing experience that makes fun to typing. A well-balanced detail on the product, rubber feet design is extremely simple and it has squared pyramid shape. Look at the F-key row, It's sophisticated, no space between key and key.
An Iconic LED lighting for the chromebook. It's mixed by Google's identity colors. Light strip on the Pixel's lid lights up when you turn on the chromebook and also when you put it to sleep mode. you can also customized the led color using the developer mode.
This is my favorite part about the Pixel. It has barrel type hinges also doubles as a wireless antenna and a heatsink underneath the hinge. Except that area, there's no more vent hole on the chassis. Laptop companies in the market they were trying to hide hinge from the chassis to make a clean foam. but they exposed the hinge on the exterior. It's very straightforward approach.
