Google Pixelbook leak reveals high-end Chromebook and stylus

Google’s October 4th event is being revealed a little early today, because following leaks that showed off the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, another leak has revealed the company’s new Chromebook.

What you’re looking at above is the Google Pixelbook, says Droid-Life. This Chromebook laptop will reportedly come in 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB models with pricing set at $1,199, $1,399, and $,1749, respectively.

Most of the details of this Pixelbook aren’t yet known, but it’s said that the laptop will be able to fold into a tablet device. Google will also offer a Pixelbook Pen, a $99 stylus that’ll be pressure sensitive and have tilt support.

Google previously launched two Pixel-branded Chromebook laptops in 2013 and 2015. There was no model in 2016, and so it’s nice to see that the family will be getting a new entry in 2017. These are high-end laptops, which means that they’re considerably more expensive than most other Chromebooks, which in turn means that they could have limited appeal. There are some folks that really loved Google’s old Chromebook Pixel models, though, and now it looks like they’ll be getting some updated hardware next month.
