Google's Pixelbook is a different breed of Chromebook. Sexy, speedy, and remarkably thin, the rarely discounted laptop offers the type of performance you won't find on any other Chromebook.
For a limited time, Amazon is taking $100 off the premium laptop, lowering its price to $899. This base model includes a 12.3-inch 2400 x 1600 touchscreen LCD, 1.2-GHz Core i5-7Y57 processor, and a 128GB SSD.
The Pixelbook is one of the few Chromebooks that supports the Google Play Store, which means you can finally get premium apps on your laptop.
Performance-wise, the Pixelbook is one of the few Chromebooks that actually stands up to its Windows and iOS-based counterparts. It scored a 7,927 on Geekbench 4's overall performance test, which beats the 6,823 ultraportable average. In real world tests, the 2.4-lb. laptop successfully balanced a 1080p YouTube video, a dozen open browser tabs, Slack, Twitter, and Outlook simultaneously without so much as a stutter.
Its battery, however, tops out after 7 hours and 43 minutes, which is shorter than the 8:34 category average. So you'll need to pack the laptop's charger for those times you're on the road.
