The time is right for a Chromebook Pixel 2

Gigaom

Although my original Chromebook Pixel still works well, the device is a few generations behind when it comes to the chips inside. Laptops using newer chips get noticeably more battery life on a single charge thanks to reduced power requirements and optimizations. The original Pixel, for example, topped out around 5 hours of run-time, while similar laptops today can get double that.

It’s difficult to use the Pixel as a mobile laptop, as a result, even though I bought the LTE model that provides connectivity nearly anywhere. On this week’s Chrome Show podcast, we discuss the possibility of a Pixel refresh, given some strong evidence indicating [company]Google[/company] may be working on one.
