New Google Pixelbook – a Chromebook Upgrade on Sale!
This year I’m investing more in my business and right now that meant updating my old Chromebook to the new Google Pixelbook with the additional Pixelbook Pen- a smart and responsive stylus. The Google Pixelbook is a high performing Chromebook that has the Google Assistant built in making this the first laptop with that feature. When you have an internet connection, you can access the Google Assistant in many ways: by using the designated keyboard button; by using the “Ok Google” wake word; or by pressing and holding the button on the Pixelbook Pen and tapping it on your Google Pixelbook. It also has the latest security and software features since it’s powered by Chrome OS. An internet connection is needed for the Auto-updates and auto-backup.
My favorite feature of the Google Pixelbook is its ultra-thin lightweight design. It’s Google’s thinnest laptop yet measuring at only 10.3mm thick and is constructed from lightweight aluminum. I can easily work on it as I walk around my house or pack it in my bag to take it with me anywhere I go. It easily adjusts to whatever I am doing thanks to its 4-in-1 design and 360° touchscreen.
I also like its speed. The Google Pixelbook is ready for me to start working in only 10 seconds and stays fast the entire time. It even charges the all-day battery (up to 10 hours) quickly* so I can get back to work quickly and keep working for as long as needed. I can sketch and edit photos or stay productive with GSuite apps and Google Drive will automatically back up the 500 most recently opened and 500 most recently shared with me items to my device. I also get to enjoy on-or-offline access to movies and TV shows with apps like Google Play Movies and YouTube Red.
Save $100 on the Google Pixelbook March 25 thru April 7th at Best Buy.
