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.

Clearly this is a high end laptop for people who want to put linux on their machines. That's really the only point I see for it.

And that will depend on how locked down it is. We've seen a trend towards locking down Chromebooks as tight as, if not tighter than, some Windows machines. If this is one of those, you may be stuck with ChromeOS for a while and have to bootstrap an external package manager on top of that.
