I love new tech. I’m always amazed when the latest device comes out. Being self-employed, I am always working on the go. Even when we travel as a family, I take my laptop with me to stay connected. Now that our home is filled with teenagers they are always eager to see the most recent tech device.
Meet the new high-performance Chromebook – the Pixelbook. Plus, the new Pixelbook Pen, which is a smart, responsive stylus that is designed to enhance the way you work and play. It’s the first laptop with the Google Assistant built-in so you’ll be able to get more done faster.
From its ultra-thin design to its collection of apps, Pixelbook is beautifully versatile and effortlessly adapts to your lifestyle. And because it’s powered by Chrome OS, you’ll always have the latest security and software features. Auto-updates and auto-backup are available when connected to the internet.
Google by your side
With the Google Assistant built in, it’s easily accessible via the dedicated Google Assistant key on the keyboard, or by using the “Ok Google” wake word. You can even access it with the Pixelbook Pen (purchased separately): simply press and hold the button, then tap the pen on Pixelbook’s screen to get help from your Assistant.
At just 10.3mm, Pixelbook is Google’s thinnest laptop ever, with a lightweight aluminum construction that enhances portability. The 360° touchscreen and versatile 4-in-1 design will seamlessly adjust to whatever you’re doing, too. You can sketch or edit photos, stay productive with GSuite apps that Drive automatically backs up to your device (up to 500 of your most recently opened and 500 most recent shared with you), and enjoy on-or-offline access to movies and TV shows with apps like Google Play Movies and YouTube Red.
Complete peace of mind
With an internet connection and Chrome OS, you’ll always have the latest security and features with software that automatically updates in the background. Pixelbook’s ready to go when you are, too: it starts up in under ten seconds, stays fast, and has a fast-charging, all-day battery that gives you up to ten hours of go from a single charge.
Battery performance is based on a mix of standby, web browsing and other use. Charging time requires a battery to be at least 5% charged, the device to be inactive, and use of the included charger.
This makes it the perfect device for college students. The Pixelbook will hold a charge while they go from class to class, taking notes and completing their assignments.
Apps for work and play
Do more of what you love with apps including Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Gmail, Photos and more. You can always download your favorites from YouTube Red and Google Play Movies to enjoy even without Wi-Fi.
