Wondering what else Google has prepared for its October 4 hardware event, aside from the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones, Home Mini smart speaker, and new Daydream View VR headset?
The answer is simple: a convertible – a laptop that turns into a tablet. It’s going to be called Pixelbook, and it’s shaping up to be the successor for the two generations of Chromebook Pixel that Google previously launched.
Like those devices, the Pixelbook will be anything but cheap. It will start at $1,199 (with 128GB of storage), but can go up to a whopping $1,749 (with 512GB of space). It runs Chrome OS, and will have an optional stylus called Pixelbook Pen. This will retail for $99. It’s going to be pressure-sensitive, come with tilt support and allegedly no lag.
