Engadget Review

Chromebook Pixel review: another impractical marvel from Google

Google's Pixel is far and away the nicest Chromebook on the market and rivals the best for build quality, but it's far too expensive for a machine with such limited functionality.

Pros
  • Beautiful, high-res display
  • Incredible build quality
  • Great keyboard and trackpad
Cons
  • Limited OS functionality
  • Poor battery life
  • High cost
