I love Google's new Pixelbook Go, but it's a baffling $850 device that no one should buy
- Google's Pixelbook Go is a perfect secondary, portable, use-anywhere internet-browsing Chromebook that complements a larger, more powerful computer.
- All it really does is run the Chrome web browser, which is all I want from a little laptop that complements my big, powerful computer.
- Except it has one critical flaw: An $850 price tag.
- For that money, you can get a great Windows 10 13-inch laptop that's similarly portable, runs full apps, and is much more versatile. For $150 more, you can pick up an Apple MacBook Air.

In almost every respect, the $850 Pixelbook Go is a perfect solution for anyone who wants a secondary, portable, use-anywhere internet-browsing laptop that complements a larger, more powerful computer.
I have to compete with my wife for Pixelbook Go time on the living room couch or in the kitchen. I'll try the excuse that I need to use it to review it, but she doesn't care."Don't you have a bunch of other laptops in the house?" she'll ask me. Yes, there are about five other laptops I could use. But I want that one. The Pixelbook Go.
And yet, never have I loved a device so much but recommended so little.
