Google is still in the market of developing Android laptops. The Google Pixelbook is a 2-in-1 convertible chromebook that runs all the apps from the Google Play store.

Design
The Google Pixelbook is the successor of Google’s Chromebook Pixel, Using the Pixelbook is lovely. The laptop is blade-slim and relatively light, at 11.4 by 8.7 by 0.4 inches (HWD) and 2.4 pounds. The keys have a bit of a rubbery, Chiclet feel to them, but they have good throw for such a thin laptop. The Pixelbook Pen accessory is as responsive as the Surface Pen, supporting both pressure and tilt sensitivity. The screen folds all the way back to become a tablet, and when it’s in Tablet mode, the keyboard turns off. The hinge is stiff enough to keep the laptop upright in Table-Tent mode, but not too stiff. The hardware is good.

Software And Memory
Google Pixelbook comes with 12.3-inch, 2,400 by 1,600 screen; 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB of storage; 8GB or 16GB of RAM; a Skylake Core i5 or i7 processor; and a 720p webcam on the front. Because this is a cloud-ish laptop, there’s relatively little in the way of ports: just two USB-C connectors and a headphone jack.

You can spawn multiple Android apps into multiple windows; ones that support full-screen mode, like Microsoft Office, appear in full-screen realizable windows, while ones that don’t, like Spotify, appear in little vertical windows shaped like a phone screen. There’s an application dock at the bottom where you can switch between apps. The laptop also has a file browser with a fully accessible file system that works like Android’s. And there are productivity apps for Android. You can open three Microsoft Office apps and Adobe Lightroom at the same time.

The Pixelbook has Google’s AI Assistant on board, as well. Circle something with the Pixelbook Pen, and the assistant will try to guess what it is by Wikipedia-ing text or image-searching for a picture
