Pixelbook Go is now equipped with Intel 8th generation processors the Intel m3, i5 and the i7 which is paired with 8GB/16GB RAM like any other high-end laptop. The internal storage starts from 64GB to 256GB which is SSD based. There is no way to add any more storage externally anymore.

The Pixelbook Go has a larger screen (13.3 inches), but it’s lighter, shifting to a magnesium chassis. As per Google, it is the best bet for lightness to strength ratio. The 360-degree hinges get the boot and Google has decided to stick to basics. This means that the Pen/Stylus has been removed and the touchscreen-only stays.

The main attraction of the Pixelbook Go has been the keyboard. The keyboard has been improved to make the keys more silent so the clacking can be reduced. The touchpad has been made a lot larger. The design on the bottom of the laptop has been made more grippy so it stays solid on the table or any slippery surface. The laptop has a clean overall look.

The display is 13.3inch which supports 1080p and the higher model has the “Molecular Display” which supports 4K. The LCD is fairly bright and is a touchscreen. The colors that the laptop is present is just black and not pink.

Fast-charging through USB-C should offer a 2-hour boost in 20 minutes.  The larger battery should last longer than those of previous Pixelbooks, too, 12 hours on a full charge according to Google. The Pixelbook has two USB-C ports due to price constraints.

The ChromeOS has fairly improved from its old buggy self. The stability is now good and one can get their work done. You can unlock your Pixelbook using the 2MP front camera for Faceunlock or if your phone has a fingerprint sensor, you can use it to unlock it. The pixelboo has a Titan C security chip.
