It's not been a good few days to be one of Google's hardware projects, with both the modular smartphone Project Ara and 2015 Chromebook Pixel being discontinued or scrapped.
Google has just announced a new and refreshed Chromebook Pixel, and while it looks every bit like the original one, the machine has some serious upgrades under the hood. Head over the jump to read all about the company's assault on the notebook market.
Leaked Video May Indicate Google Planning A Retina Display MacBook Pro Competitor Called ‘Chromebook Pixel’
Google has hooked up with several reputable vendors in order to push its Chromebook brand of notebook, and although things have gotten off to a fairly good start, it has to be noted that the search company's laptops have yet to faze those on the hunt for a truly high-end notebook. A leaked video, which may or may not have originated from the Mountain View-based company, appears to indicate a new direction for the Chromebook. Dubbed the 'Chromebook Pixel', it'll supposedly take a swipe at the heart of the high-end market - currently dominated by Apple - in boasting a 2560 x 1700 resolution display.
