Google Pixelbook Go
Was $1399.99, now $1199.99 | Save 15%
Grabbing this Google Pixelbook Go for $1199 is a great way to kick off Prime Day 2020. While most Chromebooks are seen as budget alternatives to MacBooks and Windows laptops due to their low-powered specs and the perception that the web-based, app-free approach Chrome OS is somehow limiting. But the truth is that most people aren’t doing a lot outside of their laptop web browser these days, which means a Chromebook with proper specs can do everything they’d ever want it to, including checking social networks, getting work done with Google Docs (or the cloud-based version of Microsoft Office), listening to Spotify, or watching YouTube and Netflix.
Aside from a design that rivals any Macbook, the Pixelbook Go comes with an 8th-generation Intel Core i7 CPU, an impressive 16 GB of RAM, a 13-inch, 1080p display and a 1080p webcam (which is huge in this era of Zoom calls, and a rarity for laptops). It also comes with a 256 GB SSD, because contrary to popular belief, the Pixelbook Go can do more than just browse the web. Whether you’re viewing photos, watching movies and TV shows you’ve purchased from Google Play or Amazon, gaming via Google’s Stadia or Microsoft’s xCloud streaming services, listening to your MP3 library or using Google Docs offline, there’s plenty you can accomplish with this thing when you don’t have an internet connection.
