Google has finally launched its latest Pixelbook in the UK several months after it became available in the US.
The Pixelbook Go was revealed alongside the Pixel 4 smartphone last autumn and is Google’s take on a portable Chromebook laptop.
Available on the company’s own web store, it will only be available in the ‘Just Black’ colour variant to begin with. A second shade – Not Pink – will become available later this year.
The 13.3-inch laptop comes with Intel processors and a choice of either 8GB or 16GB of RAM and several different processor options. Like the previous Pixelbook, it runs Google’s own ChromeOS and has the Google Assistant built in.
The bottom of the Pixelbook Go has a unique textured finish to avoid it slipping around while it’s on your lap or a desk.
‘Whether you’re running to a class or a meeting, the grippable design of Pixelbook Go makes it easy to carry, and up to 12 hours of battery life keeps the laptop running as long as you are,’ claims Google.
‘Even better, you’ll get two hours of battery on just 20 minutes of charging.’
they said I was crazy. they said it couldn’t be done.
but I took only the pixelbook go to #CES this year, and despite using it all day and until late in the night, I never had to sit by a wall or plug it in while out and about. that’s true all-day battery 😌 pic.twitter.com/pqkVzHePs0

Prices for the Pixelbook Go start at £629 for the Intel Core m3 model and rise to £829 and £949 for the Intel Core i3 and i5 models respectively.
If you opt for the top-spec Core i7 model, the price ratchets up to an eyebrow-raising £1,329.
