The best Chromebook overall
The Google Pixelbook Go is the best Chromebook pick overall for how it brings high-end, premium sensibilities to a much more affordable price point. With all-day battery life and an amazing keyboard, it’s the one to beat.
Display: 13.3 inches, 1,920 x 1,080 resolution
Processor: Starts with Intel Core m3
Design: Traditional clamshell laptop
Pros: Excellent display, incredible keyboard, lightweight and slim, long battery life
Cons: Fanless CPU, pricey upgrades, no biometric login, small-capacity storage
Google’s latest Chromebook to date, the Pixelbook Go, is also the one we’d recommend to most people who want the quintessential Chromebook experience.
With its approachable starting price, the Pixelbook Go offers up a surprisingly premium mobile computing experience that comparable laptops don’t even bother to. For instance, the Pixelbook Go features a 1,920 x 1,080-pixel (1080p) touchscreen with an embedded 1080p webcam as well as 8GB of memory (RAM). Some of these features, aren’t even seen on the new entry-level Dell XPS 13, which comes with a non-touch display and 720p webcam.
Where the Pixelbook Go falls is storage, with just 64GB of space to start, relying heavily on the fact that Chromebooks utilize cloud storage via Google Drive (online connectivity required). Still, it’s more storage than most Chromebooks offer at this price point. Also, with a rated battery life of 12 hours, it’s one of the longest-lasting Chromebooks around.
