Google has launched a high-performance Chromebook laptop called the Pixelbook, with the Google Assistant built in.
Pixelbook is a convertible laptop that may be used in four different configurations – laptop, a screen with the keyboard tucked underneath, tablet, and tent mode.
“It is the first convertible laptop that actually feels natural to use [in tablet mode],” said Google.
The Chrome OS PC will feature a 12.3-inch quad-HD display (2,560×1,440), run an Intel Core i5 or Core i7 processor, and support up to 16GB RAM and 512GB of solid-state storage.
It is charged using a USB-C cable, and its charger may be used to charge your Pixel phone.
Google also announced a stylus developed with Wacom called the Pixelbook Pen.
Pixelbook will be available in three variants in the US, Canada, and the UK at a recommended retail price of $999.
The Pixelbook stylus will sell for $99.
Pre-orders open today, and the device will launch on 31 October.
