About this deal

They also say that the screen resolution adjusts well to different surroundings, whether you’re in a dimly lit room or in front of a sunny window. The notebook feels stronger than the Lenovo Yoga 900 series down to its corners and even the hinges. Its matte silver surfaces detract fingerprints and feel almost identical to the outer lid of the XPS 13 in terms of texture and rigidity. After we streamed 15 minutes of video on the notebook, our heat gun captured temperatures on its touchpad (84 degrees Fahrenheit), the center of its keyboard (89 degrees) and underside (95 percent) that did not exceed our 95-degree comfort threshold. Professional reviews of this laptop’s 1080p display note that the picture is quite clear and colors are bright.

However, even though it's fine for video playback and web browsing, it’s not equipped for heavy photo editing or gaming.The plastic white strip is likely beneficial to the internal wireless radio too, even though its glossy surface can feel out of place in an all-aluminum matte build. Regardless, when it comes to premium Chromebooks, the Pixelbook Go is mostly unmatched in its particular benefits and features it offers, such as super long battery life, a 1080p webcam and one of the best keyboards we’ve ever had the pleasure of using on a laptop. The gradient is very similar to a classic point source since there are no fans expelling and drawing away waste heat. Unsurprisingly, the Pixelbook is thinner, smaller, and lighter than the four-year old Pixel and nearly identical to the Surface Pro 5 tablet in thickness, length, and weight.

Unfortunately, the bottom left corner feels softer and spongier than the bottom right corner on our particular test unit.

That's an eye-watering sum to spend on a Chromebook, and certainly overkill from a CPU, memory, and storage perspective if all you're doing is creating presentations, writing reports, and surfing the web.

That wasn’t made clear to me when I was purchasing, but to my amazement it will operate the Pearson programs. Well, it turns out Google isn’t the only company making high-spec Chromebooks; the Asus Chromebook Flip and Dell Inspiron Chromebook 14 are both strong rivals to the Go.

It may take some time for users to become accustomed to the shallow travel and unique clatter of the keyboard keys.

The Pixelbook has the older chips: Intel’s seventh-generation i5-7Y57 or i7-7Y75, depending on the configuration.The benchmarking software that PCMag uses to test PCs and Macs also isn't compatible with Chrome OS, but that's much more of an inside-baseball problem. Pressing the button while inking turns that ink into a thick blue, but doesn’t actually draw anything. Those include the Netflix app's ability to save TV shows and Spotify Premium's power to keep playlists for later. The "tin can" effect that is noticeable on most cheap netbooks and smartphones is present here on the Google Chromebook.
