Google Pixelbook down to $699 ($300 off) at multiple retailers

Sunday, November 18th, 2018

We still have five days until Black Friday itself starts, but it seems like pre-Black Friday deals come earlier and earlier every year. A lot of sales are going live today, including Google's Pixelbook for $699, or $300 off. This matches the UK deal that started a few days ago.

The Pixelbook comes in three trim levels: Core i5-7Y57 with 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD, Core i5-7Y57 with 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD, and Core i7-7Y75 with 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD.

Superbook review: Turning the dream of a laptop-phone into a nightmare

Sunday, October 7th, 2018

Many of us hope for the eternal dream of convergence, that the day may come when a phone can serve double duty as a laptop via a bit of cheap, dumb hardware. Motorola had its mediocre Lapdock, and Canonical tried and failed to crowdfund the Ubuntu Edge. More recently, Samsung's DeX dock has built a small fanbase for its desktop-like experience. But in 2016, the Superbook hit Kickstarter, promising to turn smartphones into laptops for only $99.

I used the Google Pixelbook as my only laptop at CES – and it completely converted me

Tuesday, January 16th, 2018

The Google Pixelbook is a truly excellent piece of hardware, as I stated in my review of it over two months ago. The refrain so often heard about Chromebooks, though, is that Chrome OS's limited application ecosystem prevents it from being a "serious" laptop operating system. As someone who frequently travels and has to be mobile as part of my job, I thought I'd put Google's laptop to the test in a live environment: CES.

[Deal alert] Buy a new Pixelbook, get a free Pixelbook Pen ($99 off)

Saturday, January 13th, 2018

Until February 1, U.S. customers can get a free Pixelbook Pen with the purchase of a new Pixelbook at the Google Store, Amazon, or Best Buy.

Integrated stylus functionality has become one of the big selling points for high-end portable devices, but the big players in this space, Apple, Microsoft, and Google, each charge $99 for their device-specific styluses. That's on top of the many, many hundreds of dollars they already charge for the iPad Pro, Surface, or Pixelbook devices themselves.

New DisplayHDR certification defines standards for HDR displays on PCs

Tuesday, December 12th, 2017

Given that not all displays are equal—IPS is better than TN, HDR is better than non-HDR, some people prefer LCD, others prefer OLED—a certification system for what displays can do seems overdue. The display standards body VESA has (at least partially) filled that void with the newly-announced DisplayHDR standard, which defines the abilities of display panels used in notebook PCs and monitors for desktop PCs.

Rather like the standards for SD cards that define how responsive a card would be in a specific context—like V30 for recording 4K video, or A1 for supporting a particular minimum random I/O response—DisplayHDR defines measurable standards for display panels.

Lenovo reveals the convertible Flex 11 Chromebook, starts at $279

Wednesday, April 19th, 2017

Lenovo has taken the wraps off of its latest Chromebook, the Flex 11. This 2-in-1 convertible laptop is reminiscent of some of the original Yoga models and it will get the Play Store at some point. To top it all off, it has an attractive starting price, too.

The Flex 11 comes with an 11.6" 1366x768 IPS display on a 360° hinge, a "quad-core ARM processor" clocked at 2.1GHz, 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM, 32GB of eMMC storage, AC WiFi, USB-C/3.0 ports, an SD card slot, "10 hours of battery life," and drop resistance up to 75cm (29.5"). Like most Chromebooks, the specs page is likely just the tip of the iceberg, since we all know that Chrome OS is kinder to lower-end hardware than Windows is.
