Google held its annual ‘Made by Google’ event tonight in New York City. While the Pixel 4 duo were the headlining launches at the event, the Mountain View giant also launched a host of other devices including the Google Pixelbook Go. The latest flagship laptop from Google comes in as the successor to the original Pixelbook and flaunts a loaded spec sheet. Here’s what the newest Pixelbook has to offer.

Google Pixelbook Go specifications and features

With the Pixelbook Go, Google is letting go of the convertible form factor from the original Pixelbook. Instead, the Pixelbook Go has the more traditional clamshell design crafted from magnesium alloy. The base of the laptop has a unique wavy pattern designed for better grip. The laptop will be launched across several tiers, but all of them will have the same 13.3-inch touchscreen display with an aspect ratio of 16:9.

As for the performance, the Pixelbook Go can be configured with up to an Intel Core i7 chipset and up to 8GB RAM. In terms of storage, Google is offering three variants – 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. Out of the box, the laptop boots the latest ChromeOS. The latest Pixelbook will also feature an integrated Titan C chip, which lets users enjoy advanced data security and Google accounts on the laptop. Google has announced that the Pixelbook Go flaunts an impressive battery life of up to 12 hours. The laptop can also provide two hours of usage with just 20 minutes of charging. With the Pixelbook Go, Google has also introduced its new Hush Keys, which are designed to offer a quite typing experience.

Google Pixelbook Go pricing and availability

Google has launched the Pixelbook Go in two colour variants – Just Black and Not Pink. The latest laptop will start at $649, which is roughly Rs 46,400. The laptop will go up for pre-order in the US and Canada starting today, and in the UK from January 2020. The Pixelbook Go is unlikely to launch in India.
