    Good: excellent workmanship; unique design, rigid chassis and lid; no creaking, fan-less ULV Core ix processor, very lightweight and compact, firm hinges with no teetering, support for Play Store apps, strong tactile key feedback, full frame 3:2 aspect ratio,...

    Bad: colors and grayscale are inferior to MacBook Pro, Surface Laptop, strange power consumption behavior; intermittent WLAN issues, Play Store fullscreen mode not yet perfect, loud keyboard clatter and clickpad, no USB Type-A or SD card reader, no adapters i...

    The Chromebook poster child. The most expensive Chromebook available is unsurprisingly also the fastest and most versatile. Just be prepared to bring all your USB Type-C adapters along for the trip...

    Good: Beautiful design, Keyboard is excellent, Performance is top of its class, Chrome OS is a legitimate alternative to Windows and macOS, Fast-charging is transformative

    Bad: Chromebook apps still can't quite match rival platforms, It's an expensive notebook, Just two USB-C ports, Pixelbook Pen is sold separately and has no clip or silo

    With the Google Pixelbook, you could say the Chromebook market has come full circle. Almost five years ago, Google's Chromebook Pixel forced us to consider whether $1,299 was ridiculous or reasonable for a pared-back notebook that ran web apps. Today, wit...

  • It's been four years since Google released the last premium Chromebook, the Chromebook Pixel, and now it's ticking the standard for Chromebooks up once again. Starting at $999 for the base model, Google is selling the Pixelbook at a premium price, and it'...

  • It was easy to discount the Chromebook early on. The earliest models weren't particularly capable, with limited functionality, an anemic app selection and a reliance on a constant internet connection. But the products were a surprise hit in schools, now c...

    Good: Beautiful 2400x1600 display, Fast performance, Very thin and light, Long battery life

    Bad: Keyboard throw is a little short

    Google's Pixelbook supports Android apps, Google Assistant, and pen input, making it a leader in Chromebook capabilities. Whether anyone will follow is the great unknown, but it's probably the best chance Chromebooks have to get out of their rut...

    Good: Excellent hardware design and display, Comfortable and quiet keyboard, Outstanding performance, Google Assistant is surprisingly useful on a laptop, The combo of Chrome and Android apps make this the most capable Chromebook yet

    Bad: Expensive, Mediocre battery life, Not all Android apps are well-suited to a larger screen, Pixelbook Pen feels very laggy compared to the competition

    The question is the same one we asked of the Chromebook Pixel: Is it worth spending $1,000 on a laptop running Chrome OS? The answer this time is different: Yes. with a couple of caveats.Photo and video editors as well as serious gamers will still need...

    Good: The Google Pixelbook has a sleek convertible design. Its sharp touchscreen is bright and colorful. Performance is fast, lag-free and smooth. The dedicated Google Assistant button is useful

    Bad: It's expensive. The stylus is sold separately. It has the same built-in limitations as other Chrome OS systems

    The Pixelbook has high-end hardware and a great hybrid design, but it's still hard to justify spending so much on a Chrome OS laptop...

    Good: Slim, solid design, 128GB of solid-state storage and 8GB of RAM in entry model, Bright high-resolution screen

    Bad: Many Android apps need updates to work well (or at all) in Chrome OS, So-so battery life, Shallow keyboard, Expensive

    Google's $999 convertible Chromebook is an elegant piece of hardware with plenty of power and storage. But we ran into several issues with Android apps, particularly those that weren't made by Google...

    Good: Exquisite thin design, Brilliant display, Speedy performance

    Bad: Expensive, Mediocre battery life

    The speedy and sexy Google Pixelbook is the best Chromebook, though it comes at a much higher price than we're used to...

  • Good: Gorgeous, bright touchscreen, Incredibly tactile and responsive keyboard and trackpad, Beautiful, sturdy aluminum and glass construction, Runs Android apps from Google Play and really well

    Bad: USB-C ports aren't Thunderbolt 3, Battery life is a little weak

    Laptops finally came back in full force this year.Apple's MacBook Pros — I'm not even going to get into the Touch Bar — finally grew into their own with much-needed speed upgrades. Microsoft released its first proper clamshell laptop, the Surface Laptop...

  • The next generation of mobile, done Google-style.Meet the Pixelbook, or as Google calls it, "the laptop reimagined".It's the latest Chromebook from Google and it's a lot different than anything we've seen from them before. It's thin and light and futuris...

  • Good: I really enjoy the Pixelbook's keyboard it has a good balance of firmness and feedback. The trackpad is big and works well, Google quotes up to 10 hours, and I think with a little brightness and load management, it's pretty easy to get close to that numbe...

    Bad: At $100 and with few 3rdparty applications optimized for it, it feels like an afterthought. Even in Google's suggested demo apps, the latency just feels very average. There's also nowhere to put it in or on the Pixelbook, The Pixelbook is way too big and...

    For the Chrome OS fans out there itching for a new premium Chromebook that they can proudly whip out at the local cafe, the Pixelbook is a win. If you already know Chrome OS does what you need (or, alternatively, that you can live with the ways it doesn't...

  • Good: battery life

    Bad: Pen costs an extra $99, Pen latency not consistent throughout different apps, Nowhere to store Pen on, in, or around Pixelbook, Voice commands only work when device and screen are on, Google Assistant lacks GSuite agenda and calendar integration, The best...

    Google stopped selling the original Chromebook Pixel, but seemingly only because the company wants to shine the spotlight on its new Chrome OS laptop. No distractions, no other (potentially) cheaper options: if you're someone who grew up using Chrome OS i...

  • Google's emerging hardware division has had a very rough week. The company's new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL were perhaps the most hotly anticipated new Android phones of the season, and early reviews seemed overwhelmingly positive. Once the phones actually be...

  • Chrome OS has come a long way from its start as an operating system that could only run Google's browser and a set of applications built to run inside a limited environment. The Pixelbook is the company's latest push to make the OS attractive to a wider a...

  • Good: Full offline capabilities with Android apps, Excellent build, Powerful processor, Plenty of storage

    Bad: Short on ports, Does anyone want an Android laptop

    Google's Pixelbook is a gorgeous, powerful chromebook, but it's competing with great Windows machines at the same price and chromebooks that cost far less...
