    Default Re: I want a Chromebook Pixel, who's with me?

    The limitations of chrome os don't bother me nearly so much as the battery life. I will wait for new silicon but I have no doubt a Chromebook will make perfect sense for me to own.

    Not surprised the battery is weak given the power behind the display. I find that something of a non-issue though. Maybe it's because I still see 3-4 hours of battery life as a luxury...I remember spending an extra $150 on an extended battery for a laptop just so I could push three hours out of it. I get nervous carrying real expensive electronics around so if I had the Pixel it would probably stay home a lot.

    Now with my Samsung ARM, I'd be really mad if it got stolen but at least I could easily replace it. And it has great battery life.

    There's a guy with a new MBA and a Pixel over on G+ Chromebook community that has to charge his MBA before lunch and his Pixel lasts all day. I would be fine with that. I don't need any longer battery life than that.

    Most people don't. I don't think the Pixel has any serious hardware limitations. Software readiness is more of a problem for most people, ignoring the price.

    Hmmm, I have a hard time believing that.
    MacBook Airs get insanely good battery life.

    I love my MBA but its battery life does suck. Even with the SSD.

    I'd get a new MBP if those numbers were true with my usage, but streaming music in the background while powering a dedicated video card, quad core i7, 15 inch screen, backlit keyboard and 5+ internet tabs open, I wouldn't see any more than 5 hours lol. I can get about 3-4 hours out of my 4.5 year old MBP that was custom built top of the line when I purchased it brand new from Apple.

    That's strange, do you have an SSD? They help a lot

    I don't, but at this point I'd rather invest in my desktop and funds for a higher end Chromebook.

    I think that the price of the Pixel is outrageous. I have the Acer C720 and bought it for $200. I know it isn't specd like the Pixel, but it is plenty fast and meets all of my needs. No complaints here.
