Gizchina News of the week
This is obviously the newest Chromebook from the company, and hopefully Google won’t bust itself up with ridiculous pricing like the Pixel Book. Apart from that, the prototype presented here is equipped with a 16:9 13.3-inch 1080p touchscreen. Above it are a 2MP camera and two far-field mics. It’s flanked by dual speakers, one on each side, and they apparently sound pretty good.
The prototype is the lowest-end model and has a 1080p screen, an Intel Core m3, 8GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. We do think there will be other variants such as Core i5 and i7, 16GB of RAM, and 128GB and 256GB storage configurations. The source says there will be a top-end model with a 4K “Molecular Display.” The Pixelbook Go will be unveiled at Google’s October 15 NYC event.
