uBreakiFix is Google's exclusive after-sales support partner for Pixelbooks in US and Canada

The Pixelbook is a good-looking laptop, but it's also an expensive one - not just for a Chromebook, but for a laptop in general. With prices maxing out at $1649, it'd really suck to have to try and find a repair outlet for this niche device. But just as it did for the Pixel and Pixel 2, Google has teamed up with repair chain uBreakiFix to offer exclusive after-sales support in the US and Canada.

Back in September, I got to try out the Cozmo Collector's Edition, a re-release of the 'Cozmo' app-controlled toy from last year. I definitely enjoyed using it, but the high price point of $179 made it a tough sell for many. Now you can get the original version for $127, a savings of $53.

Earlier this year, Google released 'YouTube Go,' a super-lightweight version of the YouTube app tailored for developing countries.

Now you can get the AC3000 mesh router with one 'satellite' station (RBK50) for $279.99 - a $120 saving over the MSRP.
