Introduced during the Pixel 2 event back in October, the Pixelbook is Google’s latest high-end Chromebook.
So far customers interested in this premium laptop could purchase only the variant with Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. But starting this week, interest parties can place an order for the more advanced version which takes advantage of a Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage.
But a word of warning, it won’t come cheap. A Pixelbook with his higher-end configuration will set you back with up to $1,549, so it’s not a purchase for the faint-hearted.
In return for this amount of money, you’ll receive a 4-in-1 laptop with an aluminum unibody which combines the best elements of a laptop, smartphone, and tablet. It’s available with a 12.3-inch display with 2400 x 1600 resolution and 235ppi.
What’s more, the Pixelbook is the first laptop to come equipped with the Google Assistant, so you will be able to interact with it simply by using voice commands.
The laptop can be used with an accompanying Pixelbook Pen accessory, which will set you back with an additional $99. This small stylus has a latency of only 10 milliseconds, so it can aptly replicate the traditional pen-on-paper experience. It’s great for sketching and drawing.
Customers interested in purchasing the Pixelbook can do so from the Google Store. There are three variants available to choose from:
– Intel Core i5, 8GB of RAM, 128GB SSD
– Intel Core i5, 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD
– Intel Core i7, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD
The high-end variant with an Intel Core i7 ships January 3.
