Google Chromebook Pixel rebooted with USB-C

Google has revamped the Chromebook Pixel, its flagship Chrome OS notebook, though while the new 2015 Pixel is more affordable than its painfully expensive predecessor, it's still not cheap.

It's been barely two months since Gigabyte launched its 15.6-inch P35X gaming laptop, and yet here it is again announcing a successor.
