A few years ago, many people think that "cloud technology" is really floating in the air when the cloud is very forward-looking Google launched a web application only Chrome OS, after identifying the positioning of the education market gradually to the enterprise Field expansion. After a lapse of five years, Google once again launched an upgraded version of Chromeook Pixel, then what are the adjustments and improvements? Let's take a look at it.
The new Google Pixelbook starts at $ 999. Choosing this Chromebook is not because you do not have much budget at hand, but rather on the basis of relatively old hardware.
Hardware is not Google's selling point, but the look and performance of the new Pixelbook is not bad. The machine is equipped with a resolution of 2400 * 1600 12.3-inch LCD touch screen, with very good color and brightness performance, and have excellent viewing angle. The only worth mentioning is that the border is about up and down really "Happy carriage".

Limited by size, the number of the fuselage port is not a lot. Only 3.5mm headphone port and USB-C port on the left, 802.11ac 2X2 MIMO WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2 support. Although fanless, Pixelbook is still equipped with Intel Core i5 and i7 series processors, but these are low-frequency versions that can be used without active cooling.
Pixelbook also supports stylus input, 60-degree angle handwriting input and over 2000 levels of pressure-sensitive, allowing more flexibility in creative arts and notes. However, it's a bit annoying that the stylus does not provide a magnetic connection so it can not fit to the side of a Pixelbook; it does not even have a clip, so it can not fit inside a pocket or a school bag.
Google said it will support up to 10 hours of battery life after a full charge. After the actual test in the actual foreign media about 8 hours or so life. The Pixelbook supports fast charging, charging for 15 minutes using 2 hours, charging for 1 hour using 7.5 hours.
