Google’s Pixelbook Go now comes in high-end 4K, $1,399 variant
The Pixelbook Go is Google’s latest swing at a high-end, flagship laptop for Chrome OS. The device was announced and shipped in October, but only the mid- and low-end models. As first spotted by Chrome Unboxed, the laptop’s highest-end configuration is now available for $1,399.
The new $1,300 model upgrades the Pixelbook Go to a 13.3-inch, 3840×2160 (331ppi) touchscreen LCD, an Intel Core i7-8500Y, 256GB of eMMC storage, and a 56WH battery. Like the $999 version, you get 16GB of RAM.
Those specs are super-overkill for running a Web browser, but remember, you can run Android and Linux apps on Chromebooks now, so maybe you’ll find a way to make use of them. If you’re really concerned about non-Web-browser tasks though, for $1,300, you might just want to buy a regular Windows, Mac, or Linux laptop and not deal with the restrictions of Chrome OS. The Pixelbook Go has a nice keyboard and a grippy bottom design, but it mostly earned a firm rating of “average” in our review. There is little that makes it stand out from the competition.
For now, the 4K version of the Pixelbook Go is only available in Black from Google, Amazon, and Best Buy. Google lists the Pink version as “coming soon.”
