Google is back with a new laptop aimed at enticing Mac and Windows fans away from their trusted PCs. The US technology firm announced its new PixelBook Go late last year and now this ultra-portable computer is going on sale in the UK.

With a style that could be mistaken for something that’s come straight from Apple’s design studio, the Go offers impressive looks without the premium price tag of a MacBook.

In fact, at £629 it’s more aligned to what many expect to pay for a mid-range Windows 10 machine.

For your money, you get a 13.3-inch touchscreen which offers a high-definition picture with up to 4K quality.

There’s also a long 12-hour battery life which should get you through a day and when things do run dry it can be fast-charged with 20 minutes in the plug giving you two hours of playtime.

Other features include two USB-C ports, a keyboard that Google is boasting will offer you a more silent typing experience and a unique design which not only means it weighs barely two pounds but also makes it easy to grip when on the move.

Under the hood, the Pixelbook Go has the same high-performance 8th Gen Intel Core processor which should mean it will start up in seconds.

There’s also those regular automatic updates which are pushed out by Google to keep things secure.

And, with it running Chrome OS, you can also access all of the popular apps and games found on the Google Play Store.

Other nice extras include loud dual front-firing speakers, a 1080p webcam and access to the Google Assistants via a touch on the keyboard or by simply saying the words “Hey Google”.

As we mentioned earlier, the PixelBook Go costs from £629 and comes in two colours which include Just Black with Not Pink arriving later this year.
