I’ve been dreading this day for quite a while now. To be entirely honest I’m surprised the honeymoon lasted this long; but as with all good things, this relationship too, must come to an end. I mean don’t get me wrong, I’m all for dependability and comfort, but I also need a little fun and to be a little “extra” sometimes too. I’ve been weighing my options for a while now and let me be the 1st to point out, it’s really hard to sever old ties, but the excitement from the newness of your decision will keep your mind off of the past. I promise and here’s why:
Meet Pixelbook; looks innocent right? Well, you would be wrong because this is the new high performance Chromebook — and Pixelbook Pen(1) — the smart, responsive stylus (unlike our kids right? Because are they ever responsive??) — designed to enhance the way you work and play. Smart and pretty huh? You’ve got my attention.
One thing I’ve always wanted is another me, to assist real me. I’ve had assistants, but you know what if you get one with an attitude, or that hate’s your kind of music or fave podcast? That’s why you need the first laptop with the Google Assistant built in(2), so you’ll be able to get more done faster and smarter. From its ultra-thin design to its collection of apps, Pixelbook is beautifully versatile and effortlessly adapts to your lifestyle. We can’t forget the security that goes with that Chrome OS either. I always have like me some Chrome.
Personally I’m not a fan of a bunch of junk in my trunk when it comes to electronics. The smaller the footprint without giving up functionality, the better. At just 10.3mm, Pixelbook is Google’s thinnest laptop ever, with a lightweight aluminum construction that enhances portability. I don’t know about you but this girl is always on the go so have laptop, will travel. This gives me the best of both tablet and laptop worlds with the 360° touchscreen and versatile 4-in-1 design will seamlessly adjust to whatever you’re doing. You can edit photos, create videos, and stay productive with GSuite apps that Drive automatically backs up to your device(5), and enjoy on-or-offline access to movies and TV shows with apps like Google Play Movies and YouTube Red. I feel like this is a solid device that can tackle anything I bring at it and with Chrome OS, you’ll always have the latest security and features with software that automatically updates(3) in the background. Another thing you don’t have to worry about anyore!
Pixelbook’s ready to go when you are, too: it starts up in under ten seconds, stays fast, and has a fast-charging, all-day battery(6) that gives you up to ten hours of go from a single charge(7). Do more of what you love with apps including Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Gmail, Photos and more. You can always download your favorites from YouTube Red and Google Play Movies to enjoy even without Wi-Fi.
Head on down to your nearest Best Buy location and give the Pixelbook a test drive. If you love it, you can save $100 from 3/25 – 4/7. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me!!!
