Using an external monitor with your Chromebook? If so, you may have noticed that notifications may only be actionable on your device’s internal display. That’s getting fixed but not likely in time for Chrome OS 79.
The Pixelbook Go is an outstanding device, but the Pixel Slate is no slouch either, having nearly the same hardware internals. At $529.99, you can snag the Core m3 Slate and add a discounted keyboard for less than the Go.
Two weeks of using the Pixelbook Go shed more light on just who this Chromebook is, and isn’t for. Keep in mind: It’s not a budget Chromebook. Pixelbook Go is a budget Pixelbook.
After 80 hours of using the $849 Pixelbook Go, I have to admit that Google changed my mind from “meh” to “oh yeah!” Is it worth the premium price? Yes, but not for everyone.
As a Pixelbook Go competitor, the Asus Chromebook Flip C433 is making a strong case for itself with solid specs and an $80 discount at Best Buy on day one. You can snag this 2-in-1 for $419 starting today.
The Pixelbook Go portents a change in Google’s Chromebook strategy as evidenced by the internals and starting price. Prior to getting my review unit today, I spoke with Google’s Ben Janofsky to discuss this change and learn more about the 18-month road to Pixelbook Go.
Launched today, Pixelbook Go starts at $649. It’s aimed at “people on the go” but aren’t we all? And I can’t help but think this is a slight reworking of the Pixel Slate in a laptop form factor.
When leaked images and specs of the Pixelbook Go appeared, I wondered, “Who and what is this Chromebook for?” There are many reasons that Stadia could be the answer. Does “Go” mean “Gaming Online”?
The reported Pixelbook Go specs and design have leaked, leaving me with serious questions about Google’s strategy here. This is why I said back in June it may not be worth waiting for the next Pixelbook.
