Google’s Pixelbook is the Premium Chromebook that will rival Microsoft’s Surface

A Chromebook on steroids

Google launched its PixelBook, a new name for Chromebook Pixel, with a premium slim design made from glass and aluminum. At 10mm thin, and 1KG light, the PixelBook is packed with great features, with a 12.3-inch Quad HD LCD, Intel i5 and i7 processors, up to 16GB RAM, up to 512GB SSD, two USB-C ports, a soft-touch backlit keyboard, and a battery that can last for up to 10 hours, with support for fast charging.

Equipped with ChromeOS, the PixelBook will automatically connect via any Pixel phones with Instant Tethering. It also comes equipped with Google Assistant–with a dedicated key on the keyboard, which gives you the ability to activate the PixelBook using your voice. Like Google’s Chromebooks, the Pixelbook has support for Android apps. You can even use Snapchat on the PixelBook!

As a convertible laptop, the PixelBook can convert into a tablet easily and naturally thanks to its 4-in-1 design. Accompanying the PixelBook is the PixelBook Pen: A Wacom stylus with 10ms latency, 60 degrees of angular awareness, and 2,000 levels of pressure sensitivity.

The PixelBook is available starting at $999 (~Php 51k), with the PixelBook Pen retailing for $99 (~Php 5.1k). It will be available in over 1,000 retail locations around the world starting October 31.
