Chromebook Pixel Forces Apple to Tweak MacBook Marketing Jargon
The tagline previously read, "The highest-resolution notebook ever. And the second-highest," underneath which sat a pair of MacBook Pros, the 13.3-inch and 15.4-inch models back-to-back. Now it reads, "High performance has never been so well defined."
The Chromebook Pixel bests the 13.3-inch Retina MacBook Pro, which sports a 2560x1600 display, hence why Apple had to change its headline. However, if you click through to the Retina MacBook Pro's product page, Apple still refers to the 15.4-inch model has "the world's highest-resolution notebook." That's because it boasts a 2880x1800 display with more than 5 million pixels, though its 227 PPI density falls a little short of the Chromebook Pixel.
It's also worth noting that the display on the Chromebook Pixel is touch-capable. Other features include an Intel Core i5 dual-core processor clocked at 1.8GHz, 4GB of DDR3 memory, 32GB solid state drive, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, backlit keyboard, HD webcam, fully clickable etched glass trackpad, two USB 2.0 ports, mini DisplayPort, 2-in-1 card reader, and of course Google's Chrome OS.
