Google Pixelbook Go is a laptop that Google presented along with Google Pixel 4 and Google Pixel 4 XL smartphones. It’s a laptop with Chrome OS on board designed to be easy to use and convenient to carry. A clean and modern design, compact dimensions, a durable battery and a wide choice of available configurations are its main features. So let’s discuss the device.
Google Pixelbook Go Technical Features
Since 2013, every two years Google presents a new laptop. The last Pixelbook is in fact dated 2017, a laptop with a 360-degree flip-up touchscreen display supported by the Pixelbook Pen and various interesting features. The new Google Pixelbook Go is now coming at the end of 2019, despite being a novel compared to the latter. A change, in addition to the specifications and design, is the target that Google has focused on.
An audience that is no longer a niche but wants to be as wide as possible. And to do this, the Mountain View company has had to revise its aims for a moment and produce a device that, in fact, is less advanced than its predecessor, at least in some ways.
The screen is a 13.3-inch full HD (1920 x 1080 pixel) or 4K (3820 x 2160 pixel) resolution, depending on the version with a 16:9 aspect ratio and a “molecular display” seen on the “Google Pixel Slate”, for the version with 4K display. Under the hood, there is a wide choice of configurations with processors Intel Core m3, i5 or eighth-generation i7 and memories of 8 GB or 16 GB RAM and with regard to the 64, 128 or 256 GB of storage space, clearly SSD.
For the rest, we find a pair of front speakers and microphones, a 2-megapixel front camera with f / 2.0 aperture capable of recording up to 1080p at 60 frames per second, a 3.5 mm audio jack and a pair of ports USB C.
Being a device designed for portability, Google has been particularly attentive to the issue of autonomy. Onboard there is, in fact, a battery that promises 12 hours of battery life and promises two more in just 20 minutes of charging.
