Just as I started considering whether our 8-year-old needed his own laptop for homework, games and creativity – I was introduced to the Google Pixelbook laptop. I’ll share the features that make it stand out from the crowd when it comes to design, apps and speed.

I carry around a thick, heavy laptop circa 2009, so the thought of a light, thin laptop sounds amazing.
Pixelbook is lightweight with 10.3mm, Google’s thinnest laptop to-date.
You’ll get the feel of a tablet too thanks to the rotating 360° touchscreen.
Google Assistant is built into the Pixelbook, a first of its kind. If you love all the functionality of Google, you’ll be blown away by the built-in apps.
- Google Drive
- Google Docs
- Google Sheets
- Google Slides
- Google Photos
Think of how fast you can get your work done with all of these apps at your fingertips.
When you open your laptop, you expect it to be responsive, right? Who wants to hang around and wait for their favorite apps or browser to load?
The Google Pixelbook starts quickly, stays that way and with an all-day battery for a day’s worth of charging.
Powered by Chrome OS, you can rely on the Pixelbook to keep you powered while you work from anywhere.

The Pixelbook Pen is sold separately. The stylish stylus is designed to make using Google Assistant a breeze. To get help from the Assistant, press and hold the button, tap the stylus on the screen and you’re all set. You need a WIFI connection to get the functionality of the Pixelbook Pen.
