The Chrome notebook series has a new addition, the “Pixelbook”. We already know some information about it. The Pixelbook unveiled today is very light and weighs only one kilogram and is 10 mm thick. The screen can be folded into a large tablet. The screen supports 12.3-inch touch and QHD resolution with a density of 235 pixels per inch. It comes with two Core i5 or i7 processors, up to 16GB of RAM and up to 512GB of internal storage, and its battery lasts 10 hours.
It holds two USB ports and appears to have no port for memory cards. The Internet can be automatically transmitted to it from Pixel phones via Instant Tethering.
One of the unique features is that it is the first laptop to come with a new Google Assistant and works either through the “OK Google” hot word command or by pressing its own button on the keyboard located between the ctrl and alt buttons.
The computer supports a new Smart Pen introduced by Google called Pixelbook Pen, which responds to the computer at 10 milliseconds and can sense 2000 compression levels.
The computer also supports Android applications so that it can be downloaded from Google Play Store like any Android phone or tablet, and some applications such as Snapchat will develop a special version supporting the large screen of the computer.
The computer will be available with three specifications and prices starting at $999 and the Pen will be sold separately at $99.
Pre-order starts today and will be available on the market on October 31.
