Adapts to your world with a 4-in-1 design


Pixelbook’s 10.3 mm super thin unibody and 2.45 lbs lightweight design includes a 12.3” 360° touchscreen display. It seamlessly adapts to whatever you're doing with laptop, tablet, tent, and entertainment modes. Pixelbook also features an ultra sleek aluminum body, Corning® Gorilla® Glass detail, and a backlit keyboard.

Get more done with the Google Assistant


Find info and get things done on your Pixelbook with the help of the Google Assistant.* Using voice or text, you can ask it questions, tell it to do things, and search what’s on your screen. The Google Pixelbook Pen**also works with the Google Assistant. Just press the pen’s Google Assistant button while circling an item on your screen and the Google Assistant will tell you more about it and share convenient links to suggested next steps.

Note: If you’re using a Pixelbook through work or school, you might need to ask your organization’s admin to turn on Web & App activity for your group in order to use the Google Assistant. If your Pixelbook is a personal device (not issued by your organization), you can also just sign in to your Pixelbook through your personal account, rather than your work or school account.

*The Google Assistant requires an Internet connection.
**Pixelbook Pen is sold separately.
