How the Pixelbook Go relates to other Chromebooks

After two years without releasing a new laptop, Google has finally announced the Pixelbook Go, a 13.3-inch Chromebook starting at $ 649. Based on the practice of my colleague Dieter Bohn, it seems pretty good, and it's a lot cheaper than the Pixelbook from $ 999.

So now that there is a midrange Pixelbook, it can be much harder to choose which of the many Chromebooks your next laptop should be.


If you are looking for recommendations, Dieter has you covered. His best choice from August 2019 was the Asus Chromebook Flip C434. Of course, the newly announced Pixelbook Go was not part of his comparison, and we will have to wait until The Verge & # 39; s full review is out to see how well the Pixelbook Go is doing compared to its competitors. But until our review is out, we can offer a spec-to-spec comparison between the Pixelbooks from Google and some of the most popular Chromebooks from Asus, Dell, Samsung, Acer and Lenovo:
