The Chromebook Pixel Is the Most Brilliant Laptop You’ll Never Buy

MG Siegler reviews the Chromebook Pixel, and he likes it:

From a pure product perspective, this device is a winner. It’s the Chromebook that should show many PC users they no longer need Windows in their lives. Hell, it could even convert some Mac users as well. This is how a browser-based computer should be built.

But he, like me, doesn’t get it:

Unfortunately, many of you will never know this firsthand because you’re never going to buy this device.

It costs as much as a Retina MacBook Pro, and only runs a browser. There’s zero market for it.

(My favorite part:

I still absolutely adore the dedicated search key on the keyboard.

Apple should rid us of caps lock and give us a search key.)
