Engadget Review

Though the Pixel looks the same as its predecessor, it feels like a big improvement, thanks to its tripled battery life and lower price. Chrome OS has come a long way too, to the point where the idea of doing everything online doesn't seem like as crazy an idea as it once did. That said, as well-designed as the Pixel is, $999 is a lot to pay for a laptop that only runs Chrome OS, especially when comparable Mac and Windows machines can run all manner of desktop apps -- including the Chrome browser.
