Google’s flagship Chromebook has been consistently on sale over at Amazon for a couple of months now and you can grab one on any given day for around $850. Even the top-tier Core i7 model has enjoyed some serious discounts being listed for as much as $530 off the $1649 MSRP in recent weeks. If […]
We don’t get the opportunity to do versus videos as often as I’d like, but we’re ready to try and change that in the coming months. The truth is, with review units it is pretty difficult to catch two interesting devices in the office at the same time. Right now we have quite a few […]
Sure, the $1649 Core i7 Pixelbook with its half terabyte of NVMe storage is probably overkill for like ninety-nine percent of Chrome OS natives. Still, sometimes wants outweigh needs and who wouldn’t want the maxed out Google Chromebook. While there are a handful of newer devices on the market that offer more powerful processors, we […]
There had been a bit of a break in news about ‘Atlas’ (which we firmly believe to be the Pixelbook2) since the end of 2018, but things are popping up left and right lately and we’re even inclined to think there’s a good chance that the Pixelbook 2 could make its debut at a smaller […]

There are a lot of great choices out there right now if you’re in the market for a premium Chromebook. Just today, the 16GB, Core i5 Acer Chromebook Spin 13 showed up online and you can grab one for just under a grand if you want some serious horsepower. Still, there is something almost magical […]
According to a recent report over at About Chromebooks, Google’s Pixelbook and devices based on the ‘Nami’ baseboard are getting a very early taste of GPU acceleration for Linux Apps. We’ve talked about all this a bit more in-depth in the past, but here’s the reason this is important: GPU acceleration allows applications to fully […]
For well over a year, the easy go-to recommendation for the best overall Chromebook has been pretty simple: Pixelbook. For all the other devices around, if someone was asking what device checked the most boxes, the easiest and most obvious choice has been Pixelbook.
If you’re looking to score a great deal on a new Chromebook just in time for the holidays, now is the time. Just about every flagship device on the market is discounted at various retailers and now, the Pixelbook has jumped back on the bandwagon.
We’re fairly confident that the next few months will see the arrival of a second generation Pixelbook from the fine folks in Mountain View. Exciting as that may be, I don’t anticipate any major changes in the rumored refresh of the flagship Chromebook. The 8th gen Kaby Lake chip powering the Chromebook ‘Atlas’ will provide […]
