If you’re looking for a more affordable Pixelbook Go, Woot will sell them today for $ 529. But in a much more interesting twist, those Pixelbook Gos appear to be actually prototypes.
This is a strange situation. Right now, you can buy Pixelbook Go from Woot, a website owned entirely by Amazon, at a discount. Site is advertising these units as “removed”. That’s because, instead of the typical “G” logo and the internal “Pixelbook Go” branding, these units have a different logo and instead are a generic “Product Name” placeholder.
Why is that? Woot does not give a clear explanation, but it is clear that, By some wayThey had a sizable stockpile of Pixelbook Go protoype units. This also covers every variation of the laptop, from Core m3 to i7 4K. The limit of 3 pieces per customer and the offer is valid for today, October 31st.
How do we know these are Pixelbook Go prototypes? Even though the number of units sold is a bit confusing, but the “ProductName” placeholder has been seen in leaks while the product is in development and we have seen alternatives. The “G” logo is similar in previous leaks, such as the Pixel 3 XL.
Add confusion to the story – Google doesn’t know how Woot got these things up. Talking to The Verge, the company claims it does not supply these units and does not know where the retailer gets them.
