Reviews for the Google Pixelbook Go i5

90% Google Pixelbook Go review: A perfectly good Chromebook that elevates the category
Source: PC World English
When Google vice president of hardware design Ivy Ross introduced the Pixelbook Go on October 15, she said they set out to make a laptop that would be “fast, last all day, and look and feel beautiful,” but with a more attainable price point. The Pixelbook Go achieves that with very few compromises. We don’t yet know whether users will flock to the Pixelbook Go in a way they haven’t for Google’s high-end Chromebooks, or other Chromebooks in its same price range. But Google has once again made a standard that may be hard to beat.

We don’t yet know whether users will flock to the Pixelbook Go in a way they haven’t for Google’s high-end Chromebooks, or other Chromebooks in its same price range. But Google has once again made a standard that may be hard to beat. It balances price, design, features and performance very nicely indeed.

The Pixelbook Go's thin-and-light chassis, elegant design, strong overall performance and lengthy battery life make it one of the best Chromebooks, period. Still, we wish this Pixelbook had a convertible hinge or USB-A ports.

The Google Pixelbook Go is a well-built and stylish ultraportable, albeit one that costs far more than most of its Chromebook brethren.

100% Google Pixelbook Go review
Source: Techradar English
Google’s new Pixelbook Go is the ultimate Chromebook for anyone that doesn’t have a grand to blow on Google’s previous Pixelbook. Its incredible battery life and fantastic keyboard are just two of this Chromebook’s selling points, and it has very few downsides for both average users and dedicated fans of Google and Chrome OS.

80% Google Pixelbook Go review: Who needs Pro?
Source: Android Central English
The Pixelbook Go is a stupendous all-round laptop that doesn't pretend to be anything different. It can't fold to become a tablet, but it can last nearly 10 hours on a charge and make typing feel fun again. This is the premium Chromebook to buy right now.

84% Google Pixelbook Go review: Function over form
Source: Engadget English
Google’s most affordable Chromebook yet is a solid all-around laptop. It’s not as eye-catching as the original Pixelbook, and Google cut a few corners to get the price down (most notably the display).. But the Pixelbook Go covers the basics well and should serve most people well.

75% Google Pixelbook Go Review: The Price Of Simplicity
Source: The Verge English
Simplicity in product design is mostly good, but on the Pixelbook Go it also means fewer ports and fewer ways to use the screen. Neither is a deal breaker and all things considered I enjoy using the Pixelbook more than I do the C434, but that doesn’t make it a better machine.

Pixelbook Go Hands-on: Google’s Chromebook laptop
Source: Mobile Syrup English
The new Pixelbook will be available in two colours, with only ‘Just Black’ being available at launch in Canada. The laptop’s more interesting looking ‘Not Pink’ variant — which looks similar to last year’s white Pixelbook, but with a slightly pink tinge — is “coming soon” to Canada, according to Google.

Google Pixelbook Go hands-on: The expensive Chromebook gets cheaper
Source: Android Authority English
Regardless of the competition, the Pixelbook Go feels like the right move for Google. Where the original Pixelbook was too expensive for most and the Pixel Slate was too niche, the Pixelbook Go feels like a Pixelbook for everyone. It has a good mix of smarts, specs, and Google-y style that better complements the rest of Google’s product range than either of its predecessors.

Google Pixelbook Go Hands-on Review
Source: Tom's Guide English
I'll save my conclusive opinion for our final rated review, but this early amount of time gave me a positive impression about the Pixelbook Go. Not only is it more affordable than the original Pixelbook, but its elegant design stands on its own, its keyboard feels rock solid and its chassis doesn't feel cheap.

13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.1 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Google:

The products achieve above average ratings in the reviews (as of 2016).


83.63%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
