It can run ChromeOS, it's quite clear what that can do.


So all it can do is run an OS, that is it? You cannot type on it, run applications, or browse the internet or do anything else...just run an OS.

What a joke.
I guess there's really not much else to say about this.

Or spend less than that on a top end laptop that comes with a proper OS and proper storage! It'll even have a DVD drive for when you want to install new software or watch a movie!

I have a Chromebook, I'm well aware of what it can do. The idea of spending $1200 on one is ludicrous. My point is ChromeOS doesn't do anything that (yet) that requires large amounts of storage, but if they ChromeOS taken seriously, local storage would be a good start.

The OS will be different on the Pixel than the current Chromebooks. And what it can do will be different as well. While some features may be the same, it is not the same as your Chromebook. And storage can be used by user to store documents, files, that sort of thing. And those can add up quickly.

I do agree the price is way to much unless Google releases some more info. The source link has also been updated with more info as well. Still pricey tho.

Just gold plate it and add some diamonds, kick it at $10.000 value as a rich man's "choice" of a Google product.
A bit like this:
