  1. There’s an Interesting Easter Egg in Google’s Pixel Chromebook

    On Friday Google announced the latest addition to their Chromebook lineup -- the Pixel. It's a high resolution, higher price tag entry into the otherwise bargain basement world of Chromebooks that we just don't know what to do with. Sure, that display looks beautiful, and the idea of a touchscreen laptop is an interesting one, but the rest of the specs of the Pixel don't match up with its $1,300 price tag. There wasn't anything about the Pixel we really got excited about -- then we found out it accepts the Konami Code.

  2. Google’s New Chromebook Pixel Is Neat, But Who In The World Would Buy One?

    Help me out here, folks, because I am utterly baffled by the Chromebook Pixel. It's a rather attractive piece of computer, I'll grant that freely. I'll even admit to being intrigued by the blend of keyboard and touchscreen interface, because yeah, I'll admit it -- sometimes I push buttons on my laptop screen because I forget that's not how it works. But a $1,300 price tag for what remains, at its heart, a netbook just seems... I don't want to use the phrase "Ludicrously, hilariously out of touch with the world as it exists today," but it's the only one that springs to mind. Because seriously, I don't think anyone looks at this machine and says "That's exactly what I need and I will pay more than $1,000 for it." Anybody? Anybody? Bueller?<

  3. Google Rumored to Open Retail Stores to Let You Get Your Greasy Mitts on Google Glass

    A few months ago, I was in the market for a new laptop. The Google Chromebook line was appealing for its price, but I was unable to find a store that physically had them for me to try. I type for a living, so I'm particular about my keyboard. As nice as the Chromebook is, since I couldn't get my hands on it, I opted for the Asus machine I use now. To try to prevent this kind of thing in the future, Google is reportedly opening physical retail locations that would let customers get their hands on the latest Google products, and they'll be coming just in time for Google Glass.

  4. Google's Chromebook Ad Inside Chrome Browser is Subtle, Still Annoying

    It's Black Friday, formally the worst day for retailers during the year, so it's not too surprising to see ads popping up in unusual places. I was, however, taken aback when I opened a new tab in Chrome and found that Google was using my homepage as an opportunity to try and sell me a Google Chromebook.

  5. Google Announces Chromebooks from Samsung and Acer, School and Enterprise Rental Plans

    On day two of its 2011 I/O Conference, Google unveiled two different models of what it calls the Chromebook, inexpensive, Chrome OS-powered laptops that are designed with web use rather than extensive desktop use in mind. One, made by Acer, will start at $349; the other, made by Samsung, will start at $429. Both laptops boast 8-second boot times and "instant" resumption, 3G and WiFi options, and tweaks that Google says will optimize their web performance. Both will be available to order from Amazon and Best Buy beginning June 15th. Google also announced two rental plans for its new laptops: Chromebooks for Business is a package which covers software, hardware, support, and warranty and replacements for enterprise customers for a $28 per user monthly subscription. Chromebooks for Education offers the same to schools and government entities for $20 per month per user. Specs below:
