Traveling was always something I wanted to do, but never had the opportunity until I started blogging and when I met my husband. He was the lucky fella that helped me earn my first stamp on my passport when we honeymooned in Ireland. I travel so often now that I’ve gotten really good at packing and learning to minimize my necessities.
Among my must-haves when I travel is an uber-light, extremely versatile notebook or Chromebook. Have you seen the latest Pixelbook? I’m in love and have decided that it’s a must-have for travel!
Pixelbook is the new high-performance Chromebook designed to enhance the way you work and play. It’s the first laptop with the Google Assistant built in2, so you’ll be able to get more done faster and smarter.
Like me, you’ll love the ultra-thin design and its collection of apps. Along with the Pixelbook Pen1 — the smart, responsive stylus — Pixelbook is beautifully versatile and effortlessly adapts to your lifestyle, and because it’s powered by Chrome OS, you’ll always have the latest security and software features3.
Why You’ll Want Pixelbook With You When You Travel
At just 10.3mm, Pixelbook is Google’s thinnest laptop ever! Its lightweight aluminum construction offers convenient portability that other laptops don’t. The 360° touchscreen and 4-in-1 design will seamlessly adjust to whatever you’re doing, whether it’s blogging or posting your favorite travel photos to social media.
Even better is Pixelbook’s ability to go when you are; it starts up in under ten seconds, and has a fast-charging, all-day battery5 that gives you up to ten hours from a single charge6!
Accompanied with the Pixelbook Pen you can sketch or edit photos, stay productive with GSuite apps that Drive automatically backs up to your device4, and enjoy on-or-offline access to movies and TV shows with apps like Google Play Movies and YouTube Red. Imagine how convenient these features are if you’re traveling with kiddos!
The Google Pixelbook is also highly affordable and with a Solid State Drive, you’re less likely to damage your hard drive if it does get bumped or dropped during your travels. You can find your new Pixelbook and Pixel Pen at Best Buy.
