The laptop is designed to be presented at a more affordable price, to be more accessible to more customers. All the while, the Chromebook can last for up to 12 hours on a charge.
Pixelbook Go is 13mm thin and just 2 pounds light with a magnesium alloy body, complete with quite “Hush” keys. The chassis is also surrounded in a grippable, soft-touch plastic coating for easier and more secure handling.
Google is offering the Pixelbook Go with an Intel Core m3 processor (CPU) to start, but it will be available with up an Intel Core i7 CPU at the top end.
The laptop starts at $649 (about £520, AU$930) in the US, and will be available in “Just Black” and “Not Pink” colors, with pre-orders available right now – but the release date is still forthcoming.
Cut to the chase
- What is it? Google’s next-generation Chromebook
- When is it coming out? Release date unknown, but pre-orders start today in the US
- How much does it cost? $649 in the US (about £520, AU$930)
Google Pixelbook Go release date
It’s currently unknown when exactly the Pixelbook Go will release, but we have an idea. Google hasn’t yet announced a landing date, but pre-orders are open for the laptop in the US and Canada.
However, pre-orders in the UK will not start until January 2020. This is unfortunate for you folks across the pond, but this does give a hint toward a North American release date.
If pre-orders are available now in the US, while those in the UK don’t start until early 2020, it’s safe to expect a US release date sometime in late 2019. By that logic, we should expect a UK release date to follow sometime in late January or early February.
Developing… Google’s launch event is still going on, and we’ll update you right here with all the latest on Pixelbook Go.
