It has been a few years since Google launched their Chromebook Pixel laptops and according to a rumor from last year, the Chromebook Pixel 2 was reportedly cancelled. It turns out the rumors were partially right because while the Chromebook Pixel 2 might be dead, Google isn’t quite done with its own Chromebook laptops yet.
A recent report from Droid-Life has revealed that Google has a new Chromebook that they will be announcing and it will come in the form of the Google Pixelbook. Unfortunately the specs and details of the laptop are still unknown at this point in time, but Droid-Life’s report claims that the laptop will be offered in a silver finish and will come in 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB SSD storage options, with the 128GB model priced at $1,199, $1,399 for the 256GB model, and $1,749 for the 512GB model.
The laptops are also said to be further augmented in terms of functionality thanks to the Pixelbook Pen, which is an accessory sold separately for $99 that we guess is a stylus that can be used with the laptop. It is said to be pressure sensitive and offers no lag, but we’ll probably have to test that for ourselves before we can say for sure, but it could be a huge deal if it was true.
This is actually not the first time we heard that Google could have a new Chromebook in the works, but whether or not this laptop is powered by Chrome OS or the new “Andromeda” platform is unclear, but those details should be revealed on the 4th of October.
