I keep seeing people talk about how the Pixel is reasonably priced next to a MacBook Pro Retina. Hardly.

Pixel/MBP:

4GB/8GB RAM
16GB/128GB solid state
1.8GHz/2.5GHz Core i5 (model hardly matters)
Bluetooth 3/4
5hr/7hr battery

The MacBook is just barely thicker and slightly heavier. That's about the only bad thing. If you're a student, the MacBook is only $100 more. If not, $200. And it can run not only Mac OS, but Chrome OS, any Linux build, Windows, you name it.

I'm not saying I wouldn't use a ChromeBook Pixel, quite the opposite in fact, I'd love one. But if I was buying one with my own money, I think the smart choice is obvious.
