Leaked video appears to reveal Google's touch Chromebook
The Chromebook Pixel boasts a high-resolution display and a sleek design. Is it real?
A promotional video for a new touch-enabled Chromebook surfaced today, apparently revealing the first laptop to be designed by Google itself.
As shown in the video, the Chromebook Pixel boasts a 4 million-pixel display, suggesting a resolution of 2,560 x1,700. The display is also a touch screen, in what would be a first for the Chromebook line. No information is offered on the device's internal specifications.
Developer Francois Beaufort posted about the video on Google+, adding: "All I know is that the device is actually tested at Google right now." Google has not yet responded to a request for comment.
The video was apparently created by Slinky, a company that has done work for Google in the past. Victor Koch, Slinky's CEO, said on Google+: "Our all servers were attacked by hackers, and we apologize for the fact that many projects have been shown previously!" Koch tagged Google co-founder Sergey Brin in the post.
Rumors of a touch-enabled Chromebook surfaced in November, when news sources in Asia began reporting that Google was developing a new Chromebook with a 12.85-inch touch screen.
