It’s official – Google’s latest laptop is called the Pixelbook Go.

The device wasn’t exactly a secret. If you saw 9to5Google’s hands-on video with a leaked Pixelbook Go prototype, the new Chromebook from Google shouldn’t be much of a surprise.

Still, official details are best, and Google announced its new Pixelbook Go Chromebook during its event in NYC on Tuesday.

The Pixelbook Go is a 13-inch Chromebook that’s 13mm thin, weighs two pounds, and is housed in a magnesium outer shell. Google says the laptop has a 12-hour battery life.

It will be available in two colours, including “just black” and “not pink,” and it starts at $US650. Google will start taking pre-orders on Tuesday, but it’s not yet clear when the laptop will begin shipping.
