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.

So Google put an SD card slot and Verizon LTE on this thing. I can hear the collective 'WTF' from Nexus users everywhere. Not only does Verizon hate Android users, but Google apparently does too.

It's required - since every single distro will look gorgeous on this beast, I need a bulk order of SD cards on which to load them.

This thing comes with a terabyte hard drive and 2 USB ports, so it's not like you'll be hurting for space. Nexus 4 users, on the other hand ...

Might want to keep it in the box because its gonna end up a pretty rare bird. I mean did Google not learn anything from the OEMs with warehouses full of better specc'd ultrabooks they can't sell?
