First off, a big thanks to Marques Brownlee for a brilliant explanation

 

Last night (Thursday) Google did something a little different than Sony’s announcement of the PS4 and actually showed you their next product, the new Google Chromebook Pixel Touch-Screen Laptop which is powered by its Chrome operating system where the device is built in partnership with a Taiwanese manufacturer.

This is Google basically widening their product matrix giving the consumer many different options to choose from. Traditionally known to be a software/search business, it seems as though they’re increasing their hardware offering in a big way for 2013.

It’s basically a touchscreen notebook where the software available is online. Now, I’m not the biggest fan of these touchscreen type laptops. Either you’ve got a tablet or a laptop, i really don’t see the need to have. However, that’s me. There’s probably a massive market out there that want and need this type of device.

Mr. Pichai the top Google Chrome executive,  said that people will be able to use the touch screen to work on documents created by Microsoft Office programs such as Word and Excel.”It’s clear [that] touch is here to stay and it’s the future,” he said.

He also said that it ”stands up very well against a MacBook Air,”. So, you can see Google’s intentions here and the type of market they’re going after.

They’re looking to bring it to market in April with prices around the £1000 mark.

I set up Hot Deals Monster because I was frustrated with the lack of deals specifically targeted to Men. I wasn't interested in cheap nappies or 10p off my next box of cornflakes. I wanted real, interesting deals that would genuinely help and save money for the male consumer.
