The 'Not Pink' Pixelbook Go is now available starting at $849

Google's hardware division usually throws one or two fun colors in with the usual mix of black, white, and silver devices. However, the fun colors don't always launch at the same time as the boring tones. That was the case with the Pixelbook Go, which launched late last year. Now, you can finally get the "Not Pink" variant of Google's new laptop, but it's not available in the base configuration.

It's time for Google to build a video editor for Chromebooks and Android

Acer Chromebook 715 review: A big and fast premium laptop marred by an underwhelming display

Google introduced the idea of a premium Chromebook (and a matching premium price tag) with the original Chromebook Pixel. Other companies have followed suit with devices like the Yoga C630 from Lenovo and some HP X360. In this competitive landscape, Acer has a compelling solution of its own: the Acer Chromebook 715. Acer's new high-end Chromebook sports an all-metal construction with MIL-STD 810G compliance, optional quad-core Intel Core i5 processor with up to 16GB of RAM, a full-size keyboard with a number pad, and an optional fingerprint reader. Currently, there is no other large Chromebook on the market that has those last two features.

Google's relationship with SD card support on mobile devices has been rocky at best; look no further than the absence of this feature since the very early days of the Nexus series and on every Pixel phone ever made.

Black Friday has consistently been one of the best times to shop for a new Chromebook, and 2019 is no exception.
