What does appear to be a little perplexing is that if Google had planned to pull in such a phenomenal touch screen, there was really no need to have such a large space occupied by the touchpad. It could have been simply shorter, smaller and lighter. Whether it is the LTE built in feature or running high end software and apps, the Chromebook Pixel is a fascinating upgrade from its earlier devices.
