If all you want for Christmas is a Chrome OS laptop at a decent price, you’re in luck. Of course, some people may have a hard time deeming $899 a low enough price to justify a Chromebook’s inherent limitations.

But the Pixelbook is not just any Chromebook. It’s the ultimate Windows 10-rivaling machine, providing quite a lot of horsepower, productivity, versatility and top-notch portability.

Weighing in at 2.4 pounds, and measuring a slender 10.3 mm in thickness, this 12.3-inch bad boy can seamlessly switch between four usage modes, thanks to 360-degree hinges pushing the backlit keyboard all the way behind a stunning Quad HD screen.

Normally priced at $999 and up, the 7th Gen Intel Core i5-based computer currently fetches $100 less than usual in both 128 and 256GB variations across most authorized retailers nationwide, as well as the online US Google Store.

B&H Photo Video even takes $100 off the list price of the as-yet-unreleased model with Intel Core i7 inside, 16GB RAM and a 512GB SSD for pre-orders. On top of that, Big G, B&H and Best Buy throw in free copies of the original Google Home smart speaker, typically worth $129, but separately available right now for a discounted $79 of its own.

That’s a nice deal sweetener especially for the “entry-level” $899 Pixelbook config, although buyers of the $1,099 version with a 256GB SSD and the $1,549 top-of-the-line SKU should also appreciate a little last-minute Christmas gift.
