The Pixelbook Go is Google’s latest addition to a high-end flagship laptop for Chrome OS. The device was announced and shipped in October, but only the mid- and low-end models. As Chrome Unboxed first discovered, the configuration for the top end of the laptop is now available for $ 1,399.

The new $ 1,300 model expands the Pixelbook Go with a 13.3-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 (331 ppi), an Intel Core i7-8500Y, 256 GB eMMC memory and a 56-WH -Battery pack. As with the $ 999 version, you get 16 GB of RAM.

These specifications are great for running a web browser, but keep in mind that you can now run Android and Linux apps on Chromebooks. So maybe you will find a way to use them. However, if you're worried about web browser-unrelated tasks, you may just want to buy a regular Windows, Mac, or Linux laptop for $ 1,300 and not deal with the limitations of Chrome OS. The Pixelbook Go has a nice keyboard and a non-slip design on the bottom, but was mostly rated "average" in our test. There is little that sets it apart from the competition.

The 4K version of the Pixelbook Go is currently only available in black from Google, Amazon and Best Buy. Google lists the pink version as "coming soon".
