What I want in a laptop: looks, good battery life, good keyboard, nice display, thin/light, reliable, good price and decent performance.
The go versus:
Asus 425/433/434: these are probably the biggest competition in price, looks and performance, The issue with the 434 is the lack of reliability with numerous reports for users. At 3.2 lbs it is kinda heavy, and the 433 has a cheap keyboard deck
Hp/Dell 14 inch: I put these both together because they are similar and they both are very heavy approaching closer to 4 lbs. To give you an idea my 15.6 gaming laptop weighs 4.8 lbs. The dell is not very attractive to me and more bland. The HP is attractive but still heavy, not a bad choice, but not the best option IMO.
Acer Spin 13: very premium, but more of an industrial design, also heavy, great performance though. UHD display.
Pixelbook: probably the best alternative, and checks a lot of boxes but I find the large bezels very dated. Still expensive if you want to buy it new.
Samsung plus V2: another good alternative with a metal lid. Under 3 lbs and not bad looking. The bottom portion is plastic and it does feel like it. Plain 1080p panel.
The pixelbook go has a good 1080p panel which you don’t find often in chromebooks unfortunately. Outside of the pixelbook the go is the only other one under 2.5 lbs. It is also thin. Slim side bezels. Great speakers and keyboard. The go checks all my boxes for a laptop perfect for this my masters program.
When I first heard the go announced I was upset in the pricing, but then I compared it to the competition. At regular price almost all the competition sells at $599. The base pixelbook go that I bought is $649. The go is $50 dollars more but compared to the rivals it has a leg up on build quality and looks with many of them. Now most of the other laptops I mention they have been on sale for significantly lower than msrp so you might want to consider that. There also is no fold-able display like many of the others, which for me has less meaning for the way I use the device.
What google did was refine the basic laptop and wrapped it in a pretty bow, which is the same thing that surface laptop, macbook air have done.
I got the base model and I think for most people that's all you need unless you need more storage. Chrome OS is lightweight already, so the laptop has absolutely zero performance issues with it's configuration.
The battery is stellar, I'm getting nearly 12 hours before having to charge, and it has fast-charging capabilities when you do have to.
The only limitations are Chrome OS, which isn't a problem for me since I'm only using things like google docs and sheets for school. If you need programs for heavy photo or video editing or if you're planning to play anything more intense than an android game than this laptop isn't for you. But if you need a beautiful, fast and simple OS that allows you to answer emails, write a few documents and watch some Netflix with ease than look no further than this machine.
For those that might be using this as an alternative to linux. There is still a lot of things you can't do. You can't attach USB devices to the linux container ( unless it's android ) so things like Ethernet or other devices are right out. You can't have inbound port access without 3rd party chrome apps which do port redirection ( and clobber the originating IP ), while they claim GPU support it's pretty lackluster at this point. They are making movements to removing hyper-threading totally from the software which would be a 30-40% negative impact on performance compared to similar outfitted notebooks.
After nearly a month they appear to have corrected one of the flickering issues, the most annoying one at least. Raising review two 3 stars for the time being.
Want to open two Word documents at the same time? Nope.
Want to right click on a misspelled word? JK. LOL. Nope.
Want to save a file and then attach it to an email? Not today my man! (Note: There is a weird workaround where you can save things into the Download folder on the hard-drive and then attach from there. Otherwise it's useless.)
I cannot begin to image what makes this an expensive computer. It is alarmingly difficult to perform the most basic functions. I'm a graduate school student and bought it for online classes. It fails so miserably that I have to do all of my work at the office.

Good screen. Good Keyboard. Great speakers. Good build quality. Great portability. Great battery life.
This chromebook is really thoughtfully designed. There are so many details that have been taken care of. If you are a electronic geek you will feel it. It's not just another Chromebook. The quality and design justifies the price. Some people may say, at such price you can buy a windows laptop with better specs. That is not all true. You can buy a windows laptop with powerful CPU, higher SSD capacity, but not so lightweight and portable. If a windows laptop is so portable and still more powerful, it price would be above CAD$1200.
However, it is still a Chromebook. The limitation of chromeOS makes me unable to give 5 stars. Let alone the lack of "photography retouch softwares" which most people complain about. It lacks some more essential software support. For example, a full-function microsoft Office. Some documents are messed if they are opened in google docs or microsoft office web version, they can only be properly processed in a Windows/Mac microsoft office. There is not a full-function Adobe PDF reader either. Sometimes a PDF needs to be validated to generate a barcode and only windows/mac adobe reader can do this. ChromeOS is so crippled that it can only be used for "light entertainment ", and Google does not want to change this status. It seems google wants to distinguish ChromeOS from anything else, but in a bad way. ChromeOS has been out for 10 years and is still a joke. I recently found a bug that the touchscreen become offset when there is a drop-down menu on the webpage. I'll update with pictures if I have time.

In my opinion it should be at least 250 and up but it's not a deal-breaker for the screen it is still pretty good. if the screen was sharper I would give it a complete five out of five but because of the screen I'm knocking it down half a point so 4.5/5
