Google announces Pixelbook Go, a cheaper Pixelbook

Today, during its October hardware event, Google announced Pixelbook Go, a new Chromebook laptop starting at $ 649. Google said you can now order the laptop in "plain black" and soon in a "non-pink" color.


In a video, Google showed the black version with a touchscreen, which looks like a quieter keyboard and a ribbed bottom plate that seems to make the laptop easier to grasp. The video also claims that the Pixelbook Go offers up to 12 hours of battery life.

In a slide shared on the stage of today's event, Google also said that you can buy the Pixelbook Go with Intel Core m3, i5 or i7 processors, 8 GB or 16 GB RAM, or 64 GB, 128 GB or 256 GB SSD storage.
