Chromebook Pixel - still too expensive.

This week, in addition to the new products from Apple, Google released its latest: the new Chromebook Pixel.

This one is a little cheaper than the first one that came out a couple of years ago. It starts at $1000 for an i5 version and tops out at $1300 for an i7 – about $1000 more than low end Chromebooks. 

It's another solid touchscreen laptop, but I honestly couldn't see paying $1300 for a Chromebook – Chromebooks are supposed to be cheap laptop replacements. I suppose if you were a developer and really needed a screaming laptop, you might buy one (and convert it to Linux…)

It does have USB Type-C connectors (2 of them)…

What are your thoughts?
