By all accounts, from those with the money to buy one, the Google Pixelbook is a great device — great build and runs extremely well but one difference it has from it’s Windows counterparts is that it has much wider bezels. That is all set to change later this year when Google are apparently going to be releasing a new Pixelbook.
According to our favourite leaker, Evan Blass, not only will Google be releasing new Pixel phones and a set of second generation Pixel Buds but also a new Pixelbook. The new Pixelbook is rumoured to be arriving with much slimmer bezels than the previous model which would be a very welcome change.
Add to this fall hardware lineup a second-generation Pixelbook, with smaller bezels, scheduled to ship before the end of the year.

We have seen Windows laptops such as the Dell XPS and the Huawei Matebook Pro arrive with extremely slim bezels but we have not seen Chromebooks head down this path, until now. It has been two years since Google released the current Pixelbook so it stands to reason that if the technology is there they would produce a new one to remain relevant.
This year is going to be a great Pixel year — two new Pixel phones, new Pixel Buds (after the first gen were average at best), possibly a Pixel Watch and now possibly a new Pixelbook. I would be extremely interested in a detachable Pixelbook with slim bezels — maybe this year Google will deem us worthy to allow us to buy them directly from them.
Anyone else interested or would you rather a Windows/Apple laptop at the usual Pixelbook price?
