You might find it hard to purchase a Google Chromebook Pixel 2 now given that it’s no longer available from the Google Store and Best Buy. It turns out that the laptop isn’t just out of stock, Google has actually decided to discontinue this premium Chrome OS-powered laptop. Chromebook Pixel 2 is the successor to Google’s first Chromebook Pixel laptop that was powered by Chrome OS.
Google announced the new Chromebook Pixel last year. It launched two models – a $1,299 and a $999 model – the latter has already been discontinued earlier this year in April. Google has now discontinued the $1,299 model of the Chromebook Pixel 2 as well.
When asked about whether or not it intended to restock the Chromebook Pixel 2, a spokesperson for Google told Venturebeat that “We’re committed to the Pixel program but we don’t have plans to restock the Pixel 2.” This sets the record straight that Google has no plans of selling the Chromebook Pixel 2 again.
Whether or not the company is planning to launch a successor is an entirely different matter. It hasn’t said anything about a new Chromebook Pixel at this point in time.
However, a new job listing was spotted which did suggest that perhaps Google is working on a new Chromebook Pixel. If one is indeed in the pipeline we might hear more about it in the months to come.
