Some specs: There are two USB 2.0 ports, a mini display port, and SD card port for more storage. You also get a 32GB solid state drive (64GB on the LTE version).

Google says the Pixel's piano hinge makes it easier to open and close the computer with a single finger. It also boosts the range of the Wi-Fi antennas and keeps the machine cool.

The Pixel features an Intel Core i5 processor with integrated HD graphics.

The Pixel has five hours of battery life.

The best feature is the notebook's dazzling 2560 x 1700 resolution screen.
