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 get it

Did all the creative pros move to Adobe Creative Cloud or something? I assume that's the market this thing is targeted at, looking at the resolution and horsepower.

Or did Google somehow manage to bloat-up the lean Gentoo bedrock that Chrome OS sits on for a browser to require an i5 all of a sudden?

Joking aside, I don't really know who'll want this, especially at that price. Sure, high ppi is nice and all, but just for 5hrs unplugged on a web browser?
