Safety and warranty information

Pros

Pixelbook Go is slim and comes with decent material and great grippy finish on top.
Its super lightweight competing MacBook Pro. Its security service is fantastic that hackers can’t even touch you.
Its display is too brighter you can easily work in outdoor.
Battery? it will last so long huge battery capacity.
Have google assistant button for voice command.
Super-fast intel processor will help you to load heavy tasks. 

Cons

In the Pixelbook Go there is no  LTE, either as an eSIM or as a slot for a physical SIM card. Instead, there’s just the standard Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections.
Though the Pixelbook Go’s display is touch-enabled, the Pixelbook Pen has been omitted from the lineup BUT WHY? , at least for now. Does this mean that e-ink is on the outs at Google?
There’s no fingerprint reader. For a company that makes phones powered by either facial recognition or a fingerprint, the lack of LTE and biometric authentication is definitely a surprise. Instead, there’s a front-facing 2 MP camera that doesn’t provide any biometric recognition capabilities.

My Super Opinion :

In my opinion, you should go for Pixelbook Go if you are office worker, college student, but if you are thinking for high-end gaming (AAA title) then it absolutely not made for that, you can run photoshop and any video editing apps on it but due to its cooling system it will heat up (must use a cooling desk). 
That’s all !!
