Google It's turning out to be a bit of a crazy week for cool new products, isn't it? We already got Ubuntu Touch Preview for phones and tablets, then we got the new PlayStation 4 yesterday, and today Google surprised us all by launching the Chromebook Pixel. Google's first laptop appears to be a stunning machine - just don't ask who the hell it's for.

I don't think it's necessarily the immediate choice..

BUT none of them are 'proper, normal' laptops

and each have different compromise from the traditional laptop. and they all have an element of 'tablet' functionality (as in the TOUCH side of it).

So I think the Chromebook Pixel is put out there as an alternative to the 'Surface Pro/RT Considerer'
....after all, nobody needs ANY of them. And anyone that can easily justify the expense of even the baby the Surface, can probably muster the extra for the Pixel. My two pennies.

IF the Pixel will run other OS's/linuxii it would definitely trump the surface pro for me personally.
