Google Refreshes Its Chromebook Pixel For 2015 With A 12-Hour Battery Life And USB Type C Charger: Core i5 For $999, Core i7 For $1299. Along with a fancy new hardware-focused Google Store, there's a shiny new version of the super-premium Chromebook. Google just threw the Chromebook Pixel 2015 up on its page in two models: one with an Intel Core i5 2.2Ghz processor for $999 (considerably less than the original) and one with a 2.4Ghz Core i7 for $1299. Sales appear to be limited to the United States at the moment.
“Google had another strong performance this quarter, with revenue up 20% year on year, at $16.5 billion,” said Patrick Pichette, CFO of Google. “We continue to be excited about the growth in our advertising and emerging businesses.”
