The second-generation Google Chromebook Pixel isn't just damn beautiful - it's absolutely terrific. Google on Wednesday quietly introduced the new Chromebook Pixel. It has the same design as its predecessor but this time around the premium notebook computer adds more power, a bigger battery life and a cheaper price point.

It's been almost two years since Google first announced the Chromebook Pixel and today they announced its legitimate successor. The new Chromebook Pixel costs $999 (Rs. 63,000) in the US, and with that price point, you'll get to see an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, 32GB of on-board storage.

Google has also introduced the Chromebook Pixel LS (stands for "Ludicrous Speed"), which brings the faster Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage. That very model costs $1299 (Rs. 81,837). Both Chromebook Pixel models come packing a 2560 x 1700 pixels 12.85-inch touch screens. Google claims that both new models will be able to run up to 12 hours on a single charge.

Like Apple's newly introduced 12-inch MacBook, the Chromebook Pixel features Type-C multi-device charging port. The high-end notebook has a USB-C port for charging, data transfer or external monitor integration. You'll also find two USB 3.0 ports, an SD card reader and a headphone jack. There's also an HD quality camera (720p).

There were rumours in the past that Google was working on the next-generation Chromebook Pixel. The second-generation notebook is a top-end model focused more on it design rather than software.

Chromebooks still aren't that smooth as compared to the Apple's MacBook range. That's because of its running software - Chrome OS. Well, if you like to own a high-end Chromebook - then in that case the new Chromebook Pixel isn't a bad option.
