We accidentally spotted this Chromebook Pixel while checking out the booths of one of the storage companies (they were showing off flagship devices that uses their SSD).
We did not recognize it at first but after powering up the laptop, we finally confirmed it. The huge block of solid aluminum has that same feels as the Macbook Pro, only slightly darker in shade and more monolithic.
It has a somewhat thin profile though not as thin as most ultrabooks in the market (I’d say pretty close to the Macbook Pro Retina).
It has a chiclet-style keyboard (additional pellet-type keys on the top row) and a large area for the trackpad. The Chrome logo is etched at the base, just above the keyboard.
Was able too boot into the Chrome OS but wasn’t able to play around with it because of the login. The display though was very stunning and you can definitely appreciate the high resolution (2560×1700 pixels, 239ppi).
