World’s Most Expensive Web Browser Revealed

By | February 22, 2013 | 9 Comments


If you are looking to impress some of your friends and Vertu products are out of your budget, then here’s a slightly less overpriced alternative: Chromebook Pixel.

Starting at $1,299 for the WiFi version and $1,449 for LTE, Chromebook Pixel is a “laptop” with 12.85 inch, touch enabled, 2,560 x 1,700 resolution display and Intel Core i5 dual core processor.

Minus the amazing 3:2 screen, Chromebook Pixel packs a 32-64 GB SSD drive, two USB 2.0 ports and a battery that will last you up to 5 hours, according to Google.

Speaking of Chromebooks sales, they do look pretty good, actually, as stated in the blog post, “Chromebook has been #1 on Amazon’s bestseller list for laptops every day since it launched 125 days ago in the U.S., and Chromebooks now represent more than 10 percent of notebook sales at Currys PC World, the largest electronics retailer in the U.K.”

And in case you want to buy one, head over to the following page for all the details.

      Chromebook is $200-300, paying additional $1000 for resolution upgrade is madness.

      It’s an overpriced product with awful battery life, just like Surface Pro is, except that one at least has a real OS in it so you can run photoshop, play games, etc.

      Chrome OS is not touch optimized, yet they added a touch screen.

      Step 2. Install Google Chrome.
      Step 3. Go into full screen.

    What determines the price, hardware of software?

      In this case obviously hardware.

        Exactly so all the ‘overpriced’ comments are stupid.

          32 GB SSD and USB 2.0 for $1200, sounds legit.
