Is the Chromebook Pixel worth it? It has an i7 processor, has 64 GB SSD, has a charger that charges the Chromebook up to 2 hours in 15 minutes, has a to-die-for display, etc. Except it costs $1,300 - Roughly the same as a Macbook Pro. To be honest with you, I'd rather have a Chromebook Pixel, but please give me recommendations.
The fact that it has 64 GB of SSD is amazing. It means that the device will be durable and almost never break. Having any laptop with an HDD is a threat. Desktops are convenient because you can get them with cheap HDD - Laptops also have cheap HDD except laptops break a lot faster. Durable laptops need SSD, and that's what the Pixel has.
Should I get it? All I have to do is buy the product, open terminal, and paste "sudo sh -e ~/Downloads/crouton -t xfce" into the terminal to get Xubuntu running. Adding the "xfce" in the end will install the XFCE environment, equivalent to installing Xubuntu. You can also do KDE and get Kubuntu, or type in Unity and get plain, clean, Ubuntu.
