The 13" Retina MBP runs 2560x1600 on HD4000.
Dumb to have stuff like this. You might think whats the big deal. But think, thats a code hoook that examines every keystroke for a code match. Its a perpetual delay on your key strokes, a perpetual load on your processor. Sure its not much of a load, but its still stupid to have a worthless load like this forever.

Don't like it? reformat the HDD and put another OS on it.
Personally, I like it. It could be a cool thing to show off to people if they ask about your Chromebook.
Personally I think they went overboard with the high end part of this for the OS. But to each their own, I am very happy with my ARM based Samsung Chromebook and I hope that this one succeeds as well. I wouldn't mind seeing more success for Chromebooks it's actually a great OS if you just want something basic and easy to use.
No USB 3.0, no thunderbolt, and $1300.00, OMG and Intel HD 4000 graphics! That cost is just 100 less as a 13 in macbook pro with a retna display at microcenter, and the macbook pro has 2 thunderbolt ports and 2 USB 3.0 ports, and a 128 GB SSD drive! The macbook pro also has Intel HD grphics 4000 but with its thunderbolt ports you could add an external GPU expansion box to the mac and still have one free thunderbolt Port! What does the cromebook have that makes is cost almost as much as a low end Macbook pro retna, maybe a free shag wit a supermodel! I'll drop the extra C-note and get the Mac!
[citation][nom]TheinsanegamerN[/nom]wow, overkill. who needs that kind of resolution on a 12 inch screen? my laptop has an 11.6 inch screen and 768p is just fine. what, does every letter need 7 trillion pixels?[/citation]
