Google Pixelbook is the latest Chromebook starting at $1199

For a while it did seem that Google decided to put an end to its Pixel line-up of laptops. Though, it appears Google isn’t done with its Pixel range of notebooks just yet. As the search engine giant reportedly plans to launch a new Pixel laptop that would be called Pixelbook.

According to sources, the Google’s forthcoming Pixelbook is going to be a 2-in-1 notebook that’ll come with stylus support. It’ll be offered in a choice of three variants when it launches. These include a 128GB model which gets a starting price tag of $1199, while the other two 256GB and 512GB models will carry a price tag of $1399 and $1749 respectively.

Being a 2-in-1 device, users will be able to detach the keyboard and use it as a tablet. However, the stylus won’t come bundled and will have to be purchased separately for $99. The pressure sensitive stylus is called Pixelbook Pen which offers tilt support and is supposed to be lag-free.

For now, there’s no information about its official launch date. That said, the Pixelbook is expected to go official alongside the upcoming Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 handsets on October 4. More information on how to purchase the Pixelbook and the pressure sensitive stylus can be found here.
