DIGITAL LIFE-TECH TEST-GOOGLE CHROMEBOOK PIXEL

SIEM REAP, Cambodia â¿¿ Google's first high-end laptop, the Chromebook Pixel, is an impressive machine. But it isn't very practical â¿¿ at least not yet â¿¿ for most people. It works well when you have a steady Internet connection, but can't do much once you lose that. I brought the Pixel along for a nearly three-week trip to Thailand and Cambodia, where I knew I wouldn't have the type of round-the-clock access I'm used to in the U.S. I was surprised by how much I could do, but quickly got frustrated when I couldn't do more.
