Chrome OS laptop “Pixelbook Go” hands-on: the right balance between usability and bargain

Pixelbook is the best device at the same time as the best Chromebook device. That’s why Pixelbook Go attracts attention. Despite being a Pixelbook, the cost is $ 650. It’s a Chromebook that’s very handy.

(+ For)

  • Incredible battery life.
  • Amazing ‘Hush’ keyboard.
  • Rare 1080p webcam.
  • Excellent design.

(-) Against

  • Iffy pricing at mid- to- high-end.
  • No biometric login.

The US Gizmodo editorial department at the Made by Google presentation site has touched the Pixel OS Go notebook PC with Chrome OS. How was it?

Pixelbook is the best device at the same time as the best Chromebook device. That’s why Pixelbook Go attracts attention. Despite being a Pixelbook, the cost is $ 650. It’s a Chromebook that’s very handy.

Light, More RAM, Well-balanced price

Speaking of Chromebooks recommended by the US Gizmodo editorial department, Asus Chromebook Flip C434. Pixelbook Go can be bought for $ 70. Both specs are similar. Both are equipped with Intel 8th generation M3 processor, 1080p display (Go is 13.3 inches, Asus is 14 inches), and the capacity is 64GB storage.

The differences are RAM and port, Go is 8GB and 2 USB-C ports, Asus is 4GB and 1 USB-S port. After that, Asus is about 1 pound heavier. Go is about 2 pounds (about 900 g). Good RAM, light terminal, Go’s advantage is here first. On the other hand, if you give the advantage of Asus, it will be a 360-degree hinge that can be quickly transformed into a tablet. Go is just a laptop, not the position of a 2-in-1 device.

After talking to Google VP Phil Carmack and senior product manager Ben Janfosky, Go had Go’s aim. It is an exquisite balance between portability and price. Therefore, it was released as a laptop without adding specifications that would increase the cost of hinges and stylus pens required for 2-in-1 terminals (although there is a touch screen).

Excellent Battery

You can use portability and price, but there are good deals. One of the elements that make you think so is the battery. Go battery life is 12 hours. This is a bargain because the Go price range Chromebook is 8 to 9 hours. Even the cheap Chromebook 3100 ($ 450), which is recommended by the editorial department and battery-oriented, is only 10 hours away, so Go can be said to be quite long-lasting. The battery size is 15% higher than the original PIxelbook. Carmack says, “We’ve carefully selected the core technology to use and looked for an exquisite battery,” he says.

It looks like a beautiful display

The 1080p touch display (up to 400nits brightness) also looked like a beautiful display within the limited hands-on time. The sound from the speakers was surprisingly loud. However, this may be because the hands-on venue was noisy and I heard it very close to Go. Because it is a limited time in the venue, you can’t say anything without a thorough review.

Unique corrugated design

The terminal looks and feels good! The corrugated design at the bottom is not only a unique design that sets it apart from other terminals but also helps to release heat on the knees. In this price range, where there are many plastics, it is a good impression that a magnesium alloy is used for the body.

It looks high and light. You can see exactly what Carmack is aiming for in Go. Nowadays, there are many high-end terminals and low-priced terminals. Is there an intermediate terminal with a good balance? I am aiming firmly at the layer that I think. The black and salmon pink color might have been conscious of not being too flashy and too plain.

Although the keyboard isn’t up to Lenovo’s Thinkpad series, it’s pretty easy to type. The sound is quiet. The sense of type is where you can understand your taste.

The battery, the keyboard, and the usability of the corrugated body will not be reviewed without further review. I felt that there was a good balance between usability and price, but this is the first impression I saw. However, there is no doubt that expectations have increased!
