O Google ended the mystery of Pixelbook Go (if there was one) during an event held this Tuesday (15th) in New York. The new notebook that runs Chrome OS it has a 12-hour battery and a new “Hush Keys” keyboard for silent typing. In the most expensive model, with 8th generation i7 processor, the screen has 4K resolution.
Google Pixelbook Go has up to 16 GB of RAM and Intel Core i7
The Pixelbook Go is equipped with 8th generation Intel processors: Core m3, Core i5 or Core i7, supporting between 8 GB and 16 GB of RAM and between 64 and 256 GB of internal storage in flash memory.
The 13.3-inch LCD screen has Full-HD resolution. The panel with 4K resolution is restricted to the model with an i7 processor, obviously the most expensive in the line.
The battery promises the same as a MacBook Air: 12 hours long, but this one running Chrome OS. The notebook also supports 45 W fast charging from the charger included in the box. Google estimates that 20 minutes in the socket is sufficient for 2 hours of use.
The magnesium body has a maximum weight of 1.09 kg (1.06 kg in the entry and intermediate model) and a thickness of 13.4 mm, in the colors “Just Black” and “Not Pink”.
One of the highlights of the presentation was also the new keyboard with Hush Keys, which promises to be more comfortable and quieter. There is, as always, a key dedicated to the Google Assistant. On the sides of the keyboard are the output for the stereo speaker and two microphones, with the function of reducing noise during video calls.
The Pixelbook Go has only two USB-C ports and a 3.5mm headphone port, but anyone who turns around with Chrome OS rarely needs more than that.
The entry model costs $ 649, with a Core m3 processor, 8GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The most expensive, with a 4K screen, Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM and 256GB of flash memory, costs US $ 1399. There is no forecast for these computers to arrive in Brazil.
