Pixelbook Go hands-on: a refined Chromebook, but still pricey

  • čas přidán 15. 10. 2019
  • Google's original Pixelbook was an odd device, a $1000 premium Chromebook, standing out among a crowd of ultra-inexpensive Chrome OS devices. But despite the price, it attracted diehard fans with its bold design and powerful performance. The Pixelbook Go is an attempt at a follow-up for the mainstream. It's similarly high-performing but with a friendlier aesthetic. At $650, though, it's still a premium device in the world of Chrome OS, and it faces stiff competition.

    Everything is ok but there is no real OS that's a bummer. Will never buy it.

    Do'es it have a backlit keyboard. I didn't hear her say. And then the price should be 599.00. Not 650.00 USD. which is too high.

    Though I am a huge Google fan and love all their products, I would suggest those (who, like myself, enjoy Chrome OS) and are looking into a new Chromebook to actually check out Lenovo's Yoga version. With the Yoga, you're getting a bigger display 15.6" that's 4k (3840x2160) with the same internals as the Go, 8GB RAM and 128 Hard Drive for the starting price of the Go at $629.99 plus you can have expandable storage built-in for SD cards instead of using an added USB-C accessory. Just a thought! I do love this though, it's super sleek and clean looking. Nice job Google!

      @ziovax very good point as well! I'm so using to having even a laptop stationary on a table or desk that I didn't think about that lol

    I really really would love this laptop, but there's just no way you can justify it at that price. I got a HP Envy for £600 that has an i5, 8GB RAM, 256GB storage and an MX150 GPU. I'm happy with it, but it's very rough around the edges in some places. I like the sleek design and simplicity of Google's Chromebook

    Imagine buying a Chromebook for 649$🤣🤣

    • Luka Trdina
      Luka Trdina Před měsícem

      @dandansfu Yes, because mine was old, and at the time it came out, it was 1300$, meaning it still beats out the other 1300$ laptops of its time (for this specific purpose), just as this one beats other 649$ new laptops.

    • dandansfu
      dandansfu Před měsícem +1

      Luka Trdina so you buy a 300 chrome book and you are making fun and disagree ppl who talks about chrome book for 649?

      unless you're a gamer, it's pretty good, better than windows. Your comment is a 5,6 year old joke from back when chromebooks couldn't do anything offline. Now they run full linux apps, even an entire linux environment. I'm a programmer, had chromebook pixel 2015, ran linux on it, pycharm+eclipse, still a ton of free space, faster than any laptop at that price, better screen than any laptop twice as expensive, touchscreen, aluminium design, 12h battery life, usb c charging....all for 300$

    Would buy into Chrome OS if I can use it as a software development laptop, Can I install Node on it ?, Can it run Visual Studio? Important questions and checkpoints for Chrome OS before it becomes mainstream.

      @moonSpawn linux runs in the container, you only open the console for that

    Original Pixel book - aluminium like Apple's products,
    The Pixel Go, Mg alloy, like the Surface products
    Also, the Pixel Go ala Surface Go aka the more affordable product in both lines.
    Google, the search and monkey see monkey do company.

    If you're in the market for a Chromebook, then the best one out there by FAR has been the Pixelbook. Clearly the Pixelbook Go is primarily for the consumer space perhaps for Teachers too, whereas I think the Pixelbook original is and will still be marketed as a pro/developer device.

    Most comments here seem to think that this OS is inferior to others. This is not true. This is just meant for a different group of people. Windows and macOS devices are traditional, but a little difficult for people to use and is mainly meant for serious extreme tasks. If you don't do that, chrome OS is just perfect. In fact most people can do with a chromebook. Chromebooks are a little less powerful and the biggest problem here is that due to the prices of the chromebooks in the past being so low, everyone has an assumption that it is inferior. Google has fone a fantastic job and this couldbe your next device!

      Tech reviews always forget that not everyone in the world is a professional video editor and/or an eSports competitor.
      Believe it or not, there are normal people in the world who just need to use the internet, basic apps, and do standard word processing on any given day. That's who Chromebooks are marketed toward. The average consumer and internet user. This is also a "Go" product, as in, a secondary machine. This isn't intended to replace you custom PC or iMac at home.


    wast money for android...

    A iPad Air with additional keyboard is cheaper than the base model pixel book, plus the iPad has a higher res screen and comes with a more powerful cpu as standard

    Only reviewers care about opening laptops with one hand. It's literally not even a consideration for anyone else. I couldn't care less if I have to use two hands. What's the big deal anyway? Put that Starbucks coffee down.

      You can run Linux/Linux apps on it.
      Easier to connect to peripherals such as monitors, printers, external drives, etc.
      Desktop style OS designed for cursor input.
      Virtually instant boot up with better battery life.
      2 USB-C ports so you can connect a peripheral and charge simultaneously.
