Hey Google, it’s time to launch the Chromebook Pixel 2! We need an updated version with a Haswell chip that would provide us with improved battery life. Moreover, we need the next Chromebook to be lighter and, if possible, be available in multiple variants.
You see Google, not all of us need a touchscreen. If you offer a more affordable model without a touchscreen, I’m sure you would find even more buyers. Similarly, crazy screen resolutions are nice, but a regular full HD variant could push the price south, and again – help you sell more units.
Now, I understand that the Pixel was more of a concept device, but still… I see no reason why you would avoid launching a successor.
Let’s face it – most (if not all) Chromebooks suck, big time. I do understand that the idea is to make affordable laptops for students, but… I’m sure there’s room for a $500-$700 laptop that would have decent specs and a body made out of metal. Plus, it could be lighter. Why not opt for the Ultrabook platform?
And while we’re at it – it’s time to make the original Chromebook more affordable. The current price is crazy.
