LUXURY LAPTOP: Google is entering the high end of the laptop market with a machine that features a high-resolution display screen that can controlled by touch commands. The laptop, called the Chromebook Pixel, runs on an operating system revolving around Google Inc.'s Chrome Web browser.

TARGET MARKET: The Pixel is aimed at "power users" who are willing to pay more money for laptops that have features lacking in less expensive models. That thrusts Pixel into competition against Apple Inc.'s MacBook line and laptops running on the Windows operating system.

HEFTY PRICETAG: Google began selling the Pixel on Thursday for $1,299 and $1,499, depending on the model.
