Hardware specifications for the imminent Google Pixelbook have been leaked ahead of its launch later today.

We’re just hours away from the Google event and once again, plenty of hardware is starting to leak onto the interwebs. This time around, it’s the Google Pixelbook which has gotten the spotlight.

We already know that it’s going to be a 2-in-1 Ultrabook which competes with the Microsoft Surface Book, although now we know even more. Thanks to a leak from electronics reseller Synnex, we’ve got hold of some information regarding the basic configuration.

The Pixelbook is expected to have a display of 12.3-inches, which is a slight reduction from the 12.85-inch display found on last generation Chrome Book Pixel. The device will come in three storage options: 128GB, 256GB, 512GB. Confirmed processors include the Core i5, though we would expect a lower-spec i3 and more powerful i7 to finish the range. RAM capacity is unknown.

The Pixelbook is expected to cost between $1,199 -$1,749. An additional $99 will be applied if you choose to get the supported stylus/Pixelbook Pen depending on the storage option.
