    Google announces new Chromebook Pixel with dual USB Type-C ports for $999

    It's been two years since Google rolled out the Chromebook Pixel and today they announced its successor. The new Chromebook Pixel takes the same overall design of the first Pixel and improves many of the internals while also lowering the price.

    Some of the notable improvements in the Chromebook Pixel are the dual USB Type-C ports (Apple's new MacBook has just one), Intel Core i5 processor with 8GB RAM and 32GB SSD, and 12 hour battery life with fast charging support. Other key specs include a 12.85 3:2 aspect ration 2560x1700 pixel resolution touchscreen display (239 ppi), dual USB 3.0 ports, SD card slot, 720p HD wide angle camera, and a weight of 3.3 pounds.

    The Verge has a review of the new Chromebook with an 8.3 out of 10 rating. You can read other reviews at Engadget, The Wall Street Journal, Wired, and Ars Technica.

    The new Chromebook Pixel can be purchased today for $999 with a LS version (stands for Ludicrous Speed) for $1,299. The LS model has a Core i7, 16GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage. There is no longer a LTE model available.
