Google is adding a new touch to its line of Chrome laptops in an attempt to outshine PCs running on software made by rivals Microsoft and Apple.

The new Chromebook Pixel includes a 13in (33cm) display screen that responds to the touch or swipe of the finger.

That is a key feature in Microsoft's Windows 8, a dramatic makeover of the world's leading operating system for PCs.

The Pixel's high-resolution screen displays 239 pixels per inch, slightly more than Apple MacBooks with high-resolution Retina displays.

Google will begin selling the Pixel in its web store, Play.
