I'm surprised eBay hadn't thought of it first.
Maybe they did and realized how stupid it was.
Makes me wonder how the Chromebook Pixel is working out for them. Google doesn't quite realize that there's a difference between being out-of-reach and harboring elitist aspirations vs. Apple's strategy of affordable luxury. Glass is out-of-reach enough. Did they have to make seeing/using this product truly only available to Glassholes? Their marketing is just, just horrible.
It seems that they made the Chromebook pixel primarily so that they would have a nice looking machine other than the macbook pro for showcasing their products. See this (https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/) for example. Before the Pixel the laptop in the picture would probably have been a macbook pro. Many of the presenters at this year's Google I/O were using Pixels on stage whereas in previous years they probably would have used macs.
