Google may launch new Pixelbook at $1,199

San Francisco: Google is likely to launch a high-performance Chromebook called Google Pixelbook at a starting price of $1,199.

Pixelbook will come in Silver, with 128GB ($1,199), 256GB ($1,399) and 512GB ($1,749) storage options, tech website Droid Life reported late on Tuesday.

Unlike earlier Chromebook Pixel units, the new Pixelbook folds into a tablet and comes with official Pixelbook Pen which will be sold separately for $99.

The Pixebool Pen is pressure sensitive, with tilt support and supposedly no lag, the report added.

Google might make a formal announcement for Pixelbook at its flagship phone launch event on October 4.
