Having tried this for some time, at this point I cant imagine why you would choose a Pixel over a cheaper or not cheaper mac http://thenextweb.com/google/2015/05/17/i-switched-from-a-macbook-pro-to-a-chromebook-pixel-2-heres-what-happened/
Yes for sure you can do things inside the Google ecosystem and there are apps, but.. I find it odd, Chrome (browser) crashes, Chrome acts different than using Chrome on other OS (as an example I had some weird stuff when editing Wordpress where I could not see data but just swapping to Windows of all things and Chrome there was the info), touchscreen is never used apart from when someone touches the screen not knowing its a touch screen and you then spend 10 mins talking about the lack of virtues of a touch screen laptop instead of doing what you were meant to do. And so the list goes on.. If you want to use a Chromebook and have done an in depth analysis to all your use cases, and money no object, then its a fine choice, but you can get other Chromebooks for way less. Maybe there is some grand plan for Chromebooks (hopefully an IO announcement that Chrome and Android are now one and all that general computery stuff you want to do can now be done), but until that..meh.. 
I've been intrigued by the Chromebook Pixel ever since the original version launched in early 2013. The looks and style of a MacBook coupled with the seductive minimalism of ChromeOS ...
