Pre-ordered Chromebook Pixel LTEs should arrive today

chromebook_pixel_dtHere comes your Chromebook Pixel LTE. If you pre-ordered one of Google’s flagship Chromebook with 4G/LTE cellular connection through Google Play, you should be getting yours as early as today. Hope you didn’t have any weekend plans! 

Google took to Google+ yesterday to update customers that the Pixel LTE will start arriving in mailboxes on April 12, rather than April 8 as promised back in March.

Not to be confused for its slightly more affordable brother, the Wi-Fi-only Pixel, this $1,450 LTE model comes with two years of free 100 MB per month of Verizon mobile broadband Internet. However, it cannot hop onto Verizon’s 3G network even when it is in range as we reported last month.

On the hardware side, this premium Pixel LTE has the highest pixel density display of any laptop on the market right now – besting even the MacBook Pros’ Retina displays. Its 12.85-inch, 2560 x 1700 pixel resolution screen is also a touchscreen. Under the hood, this Chromebook is powered by an 1.8GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB of internal storage via a solid-state drive, and comes with 1TB of free Google Drive cloud storage for three years.

Want to bring a Pixel LTE home even though you didn’t pre-order one back when it was announced back in February? Google Play now lists this model as “in stock” on its website, so you could be receiving your very own unit within three to five business days. The slightly more modestly priced Wi-Fi-only Pixel is also available through Google Play for $1,300 and will also be shipped within the same timeframe as the Pixel LTE.

Apple AirPods (2nd-generation) -- $90, was $159

The third-generation Apple AirPods were released last year, but the second-generation Apple AirPods are still a worthwhile purchase from Prime Day AirPods deals, especially if you're on a tight budget. They're very easy to set up with your Apple devices, and they automatically connect whenever they're in range. The wireless earbuds can last up to five hours on a single charge, and with the juice from the charging case, they can last for more than 24 hours. You can also access Apple's Siri through the AirPods -- you just have to say, "Hey Siri."

The 2-in-1 form factor has certainly come into its own over the last several years. There's really no reason to limit yourself to a clamshell — there's a 2-in-1 that will meet the needs of all but the most demanding users in terms of sheer performance.

We've reviewed every great 2-in-1 you can buy, including Chromebooks, convertibles, and powerful 15-inch versions. The overall best 2-in-1 at the moment is the Microsoft Surface Pro 8, with its fantastic keyboard that's as easy to remove as it is to type on, plus its 120Hz display and haptic-enabled pen. It's almost as good a laptop as it is a tablet, which is what makes it the best overall 2-in-1. test

Google's flagship Chromebook may finally be dead and gone, even before the line could make its official comeback.

Pixelbook team members have supposedly been transferred to other positions. Google hasn't commented on the rumor; however, CEO Sundar Pichai's memo in July 2022 stated the company planned to slow hiring and cut some projects.
