Touch Screen Chromebook - High end unit

Story: No purchase link, for this PIxel HD touch screen unit - 16:11 ratio (2560 X 1700 resolution) gorilla glass screen. I would have prefer the 16:9 ratio for film and millions of wallpapers, a known TV standard screen (2560x1440 resolution).

I believe all the convertables (think surface pro clones) the OEM's sell now, can be chrome pixel clones too and the OEM's could save the licence fees of Microsoft.

A decent link to read more about the Chromebook Pixel, a perfect solution for the person that needs 1 RB of on-line storage...

The $1,300 Chrome book will dual boot Linux with better graphics. The price everyone is upset in reviews is similar to Asus i5 laptop price but linux will install in the Pixel without the secure boot hassles of a Win8 system.

My only wish Google would develop a grub2 dual boot menu that could be activated, instead of requiring users to toggle into developers mode and not be able to keep their settings in Chrome O/S.
