Google has a media event on October 4 where we should see the next-gen Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 smartphones, but it seems like we might be getting a peak at their upcoming Chromebook Pixel successor, something teased now as Google Pixelbook.

Pixelbook is an official name, with Google seemingly adopting the Pixel branding in a big way, with a few different variants of Pixelbook to be made available. This is what we should expect:

  • Pixelbook 128GB: $1199
  • Pixelbook 256GB: $1399
  • Pixelbook 512GB: $1749

Google's previous-gen Pixel laptops were just that... laptops, they didn't fold into a tablet like Pixelbook does. This allows Pixelbook to compete directly against Microsoft and their increasingly popular Surface and Surface Book line of products. Pulling Google into the same line as Microsoft, the new Pixelbook laptop has an optional Pixelbook Pen which is $99.

The Pixelbook Pen is pressure sensitive, with tilt support and supposedly no lag. If Google can pull this off, the $1199 and $1399 models of Pixelbook are going to be incredibly popular. The price will pull all-Google users in, which there are hundreds of millions of, and yet another release in their Pixel range of products.
