quote: My music collection alone is 25GB compressed, 100GB+ uncompressed. My limited movie collection is 60GB large.
quote: What the hell was Google thinking when it made this monstrosity?
quote: And how does that matter?
quote: cannot function without being always connected to the cloud.
quote: On any other SSD based ultrabook/tablet you won't fit your uncompressed music collection and limited movie collection, especially not on a Surface! So all of them are useless and garbage, too?
quote: What the heck is wrong with you?
quote: Keep spinning this as a "I am right, you are wrong, shut the hell up!" jive talk, kid - you're trying your damned hardest to win at arguing on the internets.
quote: MacBooks are an entirely different market. Why do people keep making this comparison?
quote: Look this isn't hard. Google has fostered a market with their Chromebooks. Yes, it's a very small market, but it's there nonetheless.
quote: Different market? This is a piece of computer hardware.
quote: It can run Windows, OSX, Linux
quote: Sorry but for you to insist Google is targeting the MacBook crowd with this is beyond delusional. These are two entirely different mobile segments. Fact, get over it and move on.
quote: Article title: "Touch-Screen 'Pixel' Chromebook Takes Aim at Retina MacBook Pros" Subject: Comparing Pixel to Retina Macbook Pro
quote: No one considering this laptop would ever comparison shop this to a MBP.
quote: And you must be a Google fanboy.
quote: No one who actually knows what ChromeOS is, no. I have to believe ChromeOS is a total non-starter for anyone looking into a OS X/Windows machine. If you can't agree...I don't know what to tell you.
quote: Still do NOT understand what is so goddamned controversial about this topic.
quote: The bottom line is that the Pixel is objectively overpriced when it is only $50 cheaper than higher quality hardware that is capable of doing so much more.
quote: Frankly the idea that any laptop priced over $1k is for general consumer use is a bit skewed. The Macbook's AND the Chromebook Pixel are both niche brands.
