Google Pixelbook Review: Is it worth buying?

Author at TechGenyz Contributor
Google Pixelbook Review

Google Pixelbook is a sub $850 laptop, due to its discounts. Its original cost is $999. The Chrome OS-powered laptop competes with the 13-inch MacBook Pro, which has a list price of $1299, but you can get it at a discounted rate usually. The main question here is – Can Google actually make people switch to it? MacBooks have been a priority to many consumers, but with the launch of Google Pixelbook, things might get interesting. You can find amazing price discounts available with Amazon Offers today. Let’s take a look at the various features of the laptop.

Design

Google Pixelbook has a 7th generation 1.2-GHz Intel Core i5-7Y57 processor, Intel HD Graphics 615, storage of 128GB and 8GB memory. It is a tablet like the model with a touchscreen of 12.3-inch, 0.4 inches thin, a weight of just 2.4 pounds (1.1kg) and 360° hinge. The body of the laptop is all aluminum and is very durable and solid. MacBook is slightly heavier and has a 13.3-inch screen.

Pixelbook has type C USB ports, mic or headphone jack, 802.11ac WiFi, 4.2 Bluetooth and a 720 p webcam. The speakers aren’t up to the mark. They have been placed under the keyboard and the sound quality isn’t good. It’s better to use headphones with this laptop.

The keyboard is convenient with well-spaced keys. The sound of typing is very subtle and satisfying.

Display

With a 2,400 X 1,600 12.3-inch touchscreen, the display is clearly bright and very pleasant. MacBook has a slightly better display for Apple devotes a lot to it and wants it to be the best. Google Pixelbook will give an added taste of an android along with the OS. It has a great color reproduction. With Pixelbook Pen, it is surely a delight. The accuracy of the display and sharpness are just fine for working. The stylus won’t be coming with the laptop and needs to be bought separately. Without the pen, the laptop isn’t complete.

Pixelbook Pen

As you buy it separately, it will make your laptop experience a delight. The pen comes with a button, which is the google assistant. As you are drawing using the pen and you press the button, it stops drawing and anything that is encircled at that time by it is sent to Google Assistant for its analysis. It is a very beneficial tool for artists and students. One drawback of the pen that was encountered is that it won’t stick to the laptop. So, it can be easily lost as well. The price of the Pixelbook Pen is $99.

Performance

Pixelbook is fast and does not lag. Its smooth functioning is due to the efficient Chrome OS. MacBook has a tendency to slightly lag when running intensive applications. Chrome OS is plain fast and steady.

Battery

With a 41 watt-hour battery, Google Pixelbook can last up to ten hours, which is similar to MacBook. Both of their batteries are good.

Conclusion

The device competes with Asus Chromebook Flip, Samsung Chromebook Pro, and MacBook Pro. Asus Chromebook Flip comes at a cost of $459 and the price of Samsung Chromebook Pro is $499, which is quite less than Pixelbook. Though they are less powerful with 6th generation processor and offer less storage space, they are still very good Chromebooks available at a reasonable cost. You can also get the latest electronic gadgets available with Flipkart Offers online today.

MacBooks cost more than Pixelbook, and it has a better display indeed compared to the Google Pixelbook. The Apple devices are preferred by creative people and dominate the market. On the other hand, Pixelbook is comparable to MacBook regarding its look and displays which makes a good choice for the users.

It offers the same battery capacity and storage as well. Drawing on it would be a great experience and having the Google Assistant on the Pixelbook Pen makes it a better choice for artists. In India, the cost of Chrome OS-powered Pixelbook is around INR 89990. If you were waiting for a good laptop for a long time, now is your chance to try this amazing model. Buy the stylus separately for a better experience.
