Google Chromebook Pixel with 2560 x 1700 Touchscreen (Video)

Chromebook Pixel
Up until now, the Chromebook devices running on Chrome OS were supposed to be thin, light and cheap. While the “cheap” part is certainly debatable, it looks like Google is ready to step it up several notches with the upcoming Chromebook Pixel.

The supposedly leaked video, embedded below, showcases the new Chrome OS-powered notebook from Google and it’s looking to be much more of a powerhouse than its predecessors. For starters, that display is an impressive 2560 x 1700 pixels and it also happens to be a touchscreen.

If it were not for Chrome OS, I’d almost say that this was going to fall into the lap of the current crop of Windows 8 touchscreen notebooks. The Chromebook Pixel, which is also apparently being called the Chromebook Link, is reportedly being tested right now at Google’s offices.

Just as the Nexus devices are meant to offer pure Google experiences, the tagline for the Chromebook Pixel is that it has been “Designed by Google. Down to the last pixel.” Yes, it looks a little too much like a MacBook for some people, but it could mean that Google is really started to head down the hardware path. Of course, being tied to the cloud for everything with Chrome OS might not appeal to everyone and, no matter how pretty or how powerful this may be, that could prove to be the deal breaker.

That said rumors continue to speculate that starting with Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, Chrome and Android could start blending some of their features together. could the Chromebook Pixel end up being the fruits of that rumored effort?
