Comparison: Google Chromebook Pixel Vs. Apple MacBook Models

Google has recently launched the Chromebook Pixel and early evaluations say that it will compete poorly with the Retina Macbook Pro models. Despite boasting a high resolution display, the Pixel’s dimension seems to be more in line with the slim Macbook Air. With a 12.85” display, the Chromebook Pixel push out a rather stunning 2560 x 1700 resolution and that’s the highest available in the laptop market. Macbook Air is available in two display options, 11.6” (1366 x 768) and 13.3” (1440 x 900), which are significantly lower than the Chromebook Pixel’s resolution. The Pixel is equipped with only LTE connectivity, 32GB SSD and 1TB of Google Drive service (3 years).

Apple Macbook Pro is a clear winner with a Core i5 dual-core processor clocked at 2.5GHz and 2.6GHz. On the other hand, the Chromebook Pixel is similar in performance with the MacBook Air due to the similar 1.8GHz Core i5 dual-core processor. The Chromebook Pixel 32GB (WiFi only) is sold for $1299 (Approx. £837) on Google Play, while the 64GB mode (LTE-capable) is slightly more expensive at $1499 (Approx. £966). Apple has improved its competitiveness by slashing the prices by about $300 (Approx. £193).
