The Pixelbook Go is Google's first attempt at a mid-range Chromebook

Pricing starts at $649, and just to be clear, that's for the model with a Core m3, 8 GB of RAM, and 64 GB SSD. It's a thin, lightweight, fast and powerful laptop that runs Chrome OS.

Plus, the Pixelbook Go benefits from an improved microphone array that's better at capturing speech than that of its predecessor. Speaking of the design, the device is available in two colors: Just Pink and Not Pink.

Google unveiled the Pixelbook two years ago, and it instantly became the best Chromebook money could buy. It's available with Intel's m3, i5, and i7 processors, 8 or 16GB of RAM, and either 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB SSD storage. But Google is pushing forward, not wanting to cede ground to Amazon, Facebook and other competitors which are investing in hardware to make users spend more time on their services. The Air's 0.7mm-deep keys are also just shallow - so if travel is your priority, you might want to consider the 19mm keys on the Go.

As you might expect, the Pixelbook Go doesn't include legacy USB-A connectivity, and instead packs two USB-C ports, which are also used for charging. Google says the Pixelbook Go comes with bigger battery than the original Pixelbook. We should also mention that unlike previous Pixelbook devices, the Pixelbook Go has forgone the 3:2 aspect ratio in favor of a 16:9 ratio. It doesn't have numerous bells and whistles as the original Pixelbook in order to keep the price lower and appeal to budget laptop shoppers.

You already got a glimpse of it in the image above, but we wanted to break things down a little more.

With all these selection issues up for debate, it is over to you to select your starting England XV to take on Australia . Billy Vunipola has overcome an ankle injury and will start at No 8.

Both of these flagship notebooks are ideal for those who are always on the go, but we look forward to declaring a definitive victor when the Pixelbook Go arrives later this month.

We'll have more to say on performance in our full Pixelbook Go review, but so far it looks promising.

Google Stadia We finally have a release date for Google Stadia, the company's game streaming platform: November 19. Although Google has taken a step back and is catering to the mid-tier market, the Pixelbook Go is still too expensive for the hardware it possesses.

The Nest Mini boasts more bass and the ability to light up, but the smart speaker can also connect with other Google speakers throughout a home. The base model starts at $649.

After multiple leaks in the recent weeks, the specs and features of the device don't come as much of surprise anymore.
