Our girls have been using a Google Chromebook for their homeschool course work for a couple years now. It comes with everything they needed to do their work efficiently. And then the Google Pixelbook showed up at the house. Google Pixelbook is the new high performance Chromebook designed to enhance the way you work and play. It’s a game-changer for them!
Google Pixelbook is the first laptop with the Google Assistant built in, so you will be able to get more done faster and smarter. From its ultra-thin design to its collection of apps, Pixelbook is beautifully versatile and effortlessly adapts to your lifestyle. And because it’s powered by Chrome OS, you will always have the latest security and software features. In fact, let’s break down a few of the key features:
With Chrome OS, you will always have the latest security and features with software that automatically updates in the background so that and you always have the latest virus protection. Again, since our kids typically use it for school, we always want o make sure they are working in a secure environment online. Plus, Pixelbook is ready to go when you are, too: it starts up in under ten seconds, stays fast with a 7th Gen Intel® Core™ processor, and has a fast-charging, all-day battery that gives you up to ten hours of go from a single charge. Nothing like sitting down and having your laptop ready to work when you are!
As much as we enjoy smart home tech, the fact that the Google Pixelbook is the first laptop with the Google Assistant built in is pretty impressive. You can easily access it via the dedicated Google Assistant key on the keyboard, or by using the “Ok Google” wake word you may already be familiar with if you’re currently using Google Assistant in your home. Plus, you can even access it with the Pixelbook Pen — the smart, responsive stylus — simply by pressing and holding the button, then tapping the pen on Pixelbook’s screen to get help from your Assistant. We have found it helpful when we need to look to Google for an answer.
Do more of what you love with apps including Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Gmail, Photos and more. When it comes to both work and school, these are the main programs we use, so it’s extremely helpful to have them already installed. You can always download your favorites from YouTube Red and Google Play Movies to enjoy — even without Wi-Fi. Not to mention, you can add more apps, such as Microsoft’s Office apps for Android, Netflix or Spotify, depending on your needs.
When it comes to packing all the features into one casing, the Pixelbook is just 10.3mm, making it Google’s thinnest laptop ever. It also has a lightweight aluminum construction that enhances portability which makes it perfect for our frequent travels. This alone is a huge must-have for us.
The 360° touchscreen and versatile 4-in-1 design will seamlessly adjust to whatever you’re doing, with laptop, tablet, tent and entertainment modes. You can sketch or edit photos in tablet mode and stay even more productive with GSuite apps that Drive automatically backs up to your device. For our budding fashion designer, this will be a great tool to have!
