When it rains leaks it pours leaks it seems, as not only has the Pixel 2 XL and the Google Home Mini been shown off ahead of Google’s big event, but now some images of the latest Chromebook from Google have surfaced. We’ve been hearing rumors of this device for some time now, some even suggested that the device would be revealed at this year’s Pixel event.
The leak suggests that the Pixelbook is the official name for the new device, which makes sense considering Google has embraced the Pixel name ever since it revealed the Chromebook Pixel back in 2013. It’s about time for a refresh, especially considering that Android apps now run on ChromeOS.
The latest Pixelbook will arrive in Silver and will feature three storage configurations, including 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB. The cheapest storage configuration starts at $1,199 and moves to $1,399 for the 256GB version and $1,749 for the massive 512GB version.
The leaked design appears to show a design that’s pretty drastically different than the previous Chromebook Pixel, too. Instead of snapping apart from its keyboard, the new Pixelbook folds into a tablet and features a pressure sensitive pen that includes tilt support and has been dubbed the Pixelbook Pen. It’ll be sold separately for $99.
What do you think of the latest leak? Are you excited for Google’s event on October 4th?
