Two years after the first Chromebook Pixel, Google updates its Chrome OS-powered notebook "to fuel the imaginations of another wave of Chromebook enthusiasts." Next to the regular edition Chromebook Pixel, a variant called LS("Ludicrous Speed") is also up for purchase.

In addition to the new Intel Core processors, the updated Chromebook Pixel features USB Type-C connectivity that allows multi-device charging, as well as high-speed data transfer and display by using the same connector and cable. The notebook has two USB Type-C ports, as well as two standard USB 3.0 connectors.

Google Chromebook Pixel now features 4K video output, a wide angle 720p webcam, as well as a backlit keyboard with a whole new design. According to the official product page, the updated Chromebook Pixel has a battery that can power it for up to 12 hours on a single charge.

Google Chromebook Pixel with a Core i5 processor, 8 GB RAM, and 32 GB SSD can be purchased in the US for $999 USD, while the LS has a price of $1,299 USD and packs a 5th-gen Intel Core i7 processor, 16 GB memory, and 64 GB internal storage.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
