Pixelbook Go caught in live photos ahead of launch
Google may have given up on tablets for the immediate future, but it is very much invested in bringing more Chromebooks to market. The latest is the Pixelbook Go which is due to be officially revealed this week. However, now, as with the Pixel 4, the Pixelbook Go has been well and truly exposed to the world in advance of its official unveiling. (Pixelbook Core i7 on sale now at Amazon)
The folks at 9to5Google have managed to get their hands on a Pixelbook Go prototype and it looks like it will be an interesting proposition. Given the “Go” name, the suggestion is that it might be a little more affordable than the current Pixelbook which was launched in late 2017 but which was criticized for being too pricey for a Chromebook. That said, based on the specs, it looks like the Pixelbook Go could well span a pricing range pushing it into a premium price point.
The more affordable Pixelbook Go models will be fitted with an Intel Core m3 matched with 8 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage and a 13.3-inch 1080p display. The pricier models will have the option of an Intel Core i5 or Core i7 chip mated with up to 16 GB of RAM and a 13.3-inch 4K ‘Molecular Display’. All will feature dual front-firing speakers, two USB-C ports and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. It will also be available in two colors whimsically called “Just Black” and “Not Pink”. Pricing specifics is about the only thing yet to be revealed.
