The wait is finally over. For those of you, if any, who have been waiting on the Core i7 model of Google’s Pixelbook, I just got the email that it is now available from the Google Store in limited quantities.
The even better news is that the beefed-up model is also enjoying the $100 discount as its Core i5 siblings. Not only that, they’re still tossing in a free Google Home. You can pick up the monster Chromebook directly from Google for $1549. Here’s the rundown of the specs in case you missed them.
