Here's the official Google Chromebook Pixel video

Touchscreen Chromebook can be yours for $1,300

By  

So it looks like that leaked video from Feb. 7, which showed the Chromebook Pixel, was pretty accurate.

Google today announced the device with its own video (see below), although they've substituted the touch-screen portion from the jellyfish with a space-universe type action. Regardless, the company said the Chrome OS-powered notebook would cost $1,299 and come with a 12.85-inch, 2,560 by 1,700-pixel touchscreen, Wi-Fi and 32GB of internal storage (you can pay $1,499 and get integrated Verizon 4G LTE and a 64GB SSD).

More details on the device are here, including how you can order one.

The price tag would seem to put the Chromebook on par with regular notebooks, you know, ones that can connect a bunch of peripherals easily and the like. Most comments I've seen so far indicate that people use their Chromebooks as secondary devices, not their main computers. What do you think?
