Meet Pixelbook: 5 Reasons to Get the new Chromebook from Google
Pixelbook is the laptop made by Google running Chrome OS and Android Apps. It’s a high performance Chromebook with amazing features that will make you want to get it. I’m listing 5 amazing features of the Pixelbook below.
1. Comes With Google Assistant
It’s the first laptop from Google that has the Google Assistant built in. So you can have Google by your side at all times with the Pixelbook! With an internet connection, you can easily access it via the dedicated Google Assistant key on the keyboard. Or you can simply say, “Ok, Google”, just like how you would your Android phones and/or your Google Home/Mini gadgets! Or, if you have the Pixelbook Pen, you can simply press and hold the button, then tap the pen on the Pixelbook’s screen to open up Google Assistant!
2. Can Be Used With a Stylus
As I just mentioned above, you can use this Chromebook with the Pixelbook Pen. It’s the smart and responsive stylus, perfect for those who love a handy pen to jot, sketch, or simply access apps in a laptop. You know I love to write down notes, list my deadlines, pencil in my appointments, etc. So having a stylus is a no-brainer for me!
3. Auto-Updates and Auto Back-Up
One of the things I forget to do with a typical laptop is backing up my files. That’s why I’m glad at least my Android phones are backed up automatically to my Google Drive. Now this Pixelbook is the same when it’s connected to the internet! Since it’s powered by Chrome OS, you can set that auto back-up feature. And with the auto-updates too, you’ll always have the latest security and software, with updates running in the background while you work on something else.
4. Portability: Google’s Thinnest Laptop To Date
If you’re always on the go and take your work everywhere with you (ahem, read: me), that means you need a lightweight laptop you can lug around too. The Pixelbook is Google’s thinnest laptop ever at just 10.3 mm with lightweight aluminum construction. Plus, the 360° touchscreen and versatile 4-in-1 design will seamlessly adjust to whatever you’re doing, wherever you’re taking it – in your couch or bed, on the road in a car, in flight, or anywhere else!
5. Fast Performance, Fast-Charging Battery
My current laptop is over 5 years old. When I restart it, it takes more than 10 minutes to get it back up to speed (load, log-in, boot up, etc.). I haven’t really timed it, but I’d say, I give it a good 15 minutes when I reboot it. Now, do you know how fast the Google Pixelbook starts up? It starts up in under 10 seconds. SECONDS! Plus, the fast-charging all-day battery gives you up to 10 hours from a single charge (mix of web browsing, stand-by, app use).
Bonus: Enjoy Gsuite Apps and More
I know I said 5 reasons. But there’s another that will give you more reason to get it if you’re an Android user! It’s the accessibility of the GSuite apps with auto backup to your Google Drive, and being able to use the apps that you love from your Android smartphones and Android TV! Here’s the thing, I wasn’t an Android user before. Then, I made the switch. At first, I wasn’t loving it, because I’m not used to it. But then, we got an Android TV and my world has forever changed. I get to easily open my Google Drive photos, videos, docs, apps and more, across platforms. I can even enjoy on-or-offline access to movies and TV shows, with apps like Google Play Movies and YouTube Red on all Android devices! You can download your faves from those apps to enjoy without Wi-Fi.
