Nobody was sure whether or not the rumored Chromebook Pixel Touchscreen was real until now. The Chromebook Pixel gets its name from its whopping 2,560 x 1,700 resolution, which gives it an impressive 239 pixel density per inch. The resolution isn't as high as the 15-inch screen on the Apple Macbook Retina, but thanks to the Pixel's smaller screen, the density is higher.

The Chromebook sports a dual-core 1.8Ghz Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM, and either 32GB or 64GB of SSD storage depending on what model you get. Google is also offering 1TB of cloud storage for up to three years. The 64GB SSD model will also contain a Verizon LTE chip, while the 32GB model is WiFi only.

The rest of the features includes an HD camera, three microphones, speakers, two USB ports, a microphone/headphone jack, SD card reader, and Bluetooth capabilities. A 59Wh battery will supposedly power the device for five hours on a single charge. And then, of course, there's the touchscreen.

The device is already available for pre-order in the Google Playstore for $1,299 and $1,499.
