Along with Pixel 4, Google introduces its new Pixelbook Go laptop at Made by Google event. It is the company’s first laptop after Pixel Slate. This time the Mountain View company made the Pixelbook Go more affordable than the original Pixelbook.[wpinsertshortcodead id=”bzyqm5d3e04029f48f”]
The Pixelbook Go is designed to be lightweight, weighing only 2 pounds and is 13mm thin with a magnesium alloy body. The underside of the laptop made a wave-like design for better gripping. The laptop comes in two colors, which the company named Just black and Not Pink.
The laptop has a 13.3-inch LCD touchscreen display, which can go sharp as 4K. The laptop display has an aspect ratio of 16:9 and 72% of NTSC color.
Moreover, the Pixelbook Go comes with a new keyboard which the Mountain View company calls Hush Keys. It promises that the keys are better for typing and also quieter than the original Pixelbook keyboard. Google Assistant is also available with a keypress on the keyboard or by saying, “Hey Google.”
The laptop comes with a dual front-facing speaker for better surround sound and two mics for improved noise cancellation. It also has a 1080p webcam, which captures 60 frames per second and an ambient light sensor for better video chatting.
There are four variants of laptops, according to the processors, ram, and storage. These laptops are powered by up to Intel Core i7, up to 16GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. The processors in Pixelbook Go are fanless, which is less robust than the other processors. Google also includes the Titan C security chip inside for handling personal information securely.
The Full HD Pixelbook Go variant device has a 47Wh battery, whereas the 4K Ultra HD Molecular Display variant has a battery of 56WH. Both laptops have 12 hours of battery backup on a single charge and support fast charging that is in 20 minutes of charge the device can be used up to 2 hours.
For connectivity, the laptop has an 802.11ac WiFi, or WiFi 5, and Bluetooth 4.2, which is pretty unfortunate as WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5 are already available now. It also features two USB-C, which can be used for both charging and display output and a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
The laptop is running on Google’s Chrome OS, which the company promises to provide seamless updates, built-in virus protection, and fast startup.
The starting price of Pixelbook Go is $649 and is available for pre-order from today onwards.
