At $1000+ the Google Pixelbook might be the most expensive Chromebook out there.
This is one of my favorite new laptops: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BA9Zvx22Ejw
Well I love mine - I work using G-Suite and do everything in the cloud, so a CB is for me. I am not saying that it is perfect as an OS (yet), and the implementation of Android apps has been kludgy, but it is getting there. And the hardware is to die for.
I have one and cannot fault it. Perfect writing and note taking machine for work, and the screen is lovely for watching movies/TV. Superb industrial design. Compliments other laptops, not replaces them. Give it a year for real pro level web apps to appear, and then it will be all you need.

TBH, an Core i5, 256GB SSD and 8GB ram PC should cost 'round 490$; and with 1000$ you can buy Core i7, 16/32GB and 1TB HDD and 256GB SSD PC, or if you are classy, a MacBook that actually don't sucks and you can do pretty more that browse and, if you like android apps you can dual boot.
I am using a Chromebook for high school that the school gave to us for the four years we're here, and I love the simpleness of it. It's a great device if you want something that's not for hardcore "gaming" to watch YouTube or browse the web that's not on your phone. It's bigger than a phone, but not as developed as a full on computer/laptop.
My pixel book can do anything that a regular PC and Mac can do. But way way way way faster and better. Thank God now I don't have to wait hours for my PC do to updates every fricken second. This Pixel book boots in 3 seconds and doesn't send you to hell always cause of update. As far as Mac goes these two are close to being even. But knowing I can do my work in seconds of always a plus no longer waiting hour's for updating from windows drama
