In one test, the Pixelbook Go's Core i5-8200Y processor and 8GB of RAM shredded through 30 Google Chrome tabs and five 1080p YouTube videos simultaneously without a hint of lag. The Pixelbook Go in this deal packs 16GB of RAM, so you can expect multitasking to be exceptionally seamless.
Design-wise, the Pixelbook Go sports a low-profile, minimalist design. Its smooth, magnesium-alloy finish chassis has a single Google "G" logo on the lid. Meanwhile, the underside of the laptop's washboard-like, ribbed texture gives you a solid, non-slip grip.
At just 2.3 pounds and 12.2 x 8.1 x 0.5 inches, the Pixelbook Go is lighter and thinner than most of our best 13-inch laptops. It's more portable than the HP Envy 13 (2.8 pounds, 12.1 x 8.3 x 0.57 inches), the HP Chromebook 15 (4 pounds, 14.1 x 9.7 x 0.7 inches) and Asus Chromebook Flip C434 (3.1 pounds, 12.6 x 8.0 x 0.6 inches).
For your connectivity needs, the Pixelbook Go keeps it simple with just two USB Type-C ports and a headphone jack.
