What if we told you that the GooglePixelbook, which now runs Chrome OS, might also run Windows 10 down the road?
It feels unlikely that Google would be willing to ship a version of the Pixelbook with Windows 10 pre-loaded, but with this certification, that's something that the company would be able to do.
Last year Google unveiled the Pixelbook which is basically a Chromebook that has the ability to fold back onto itself where users can choose to use it as a tablet or a regular laptop. The HLK specifically is mentioned in association with "Eve", the Pixelbook's development codename.
Based on commits found in the Chromium codebases, it looks like Google is testing the Pixelbook against the Windows Hardware Certification Kit (WHCK) and Hardware Lab Kit (HLK). However the starting price of £999, rising to £1,699 with bumped up specs, dampened many a HEXUS reader's desire to own this exclusively Chrome OS laptop.
While it's unclear exactly how the feature might work, it appears likely that you'll be able to turn on the Pixelbook and choose whether to run Chrome OS or Windows 10. Of course, the firmware is not the only part of this equation; Google would also have to ensure there's a suitable set of drivers to go with it. For a start, it would instantly address lingering criticisms that Chromebooks have faced from the start, that Chrome OS lacks the full range of apps and services to make it a realistic replacement to a Windows or macOS notebook.
For all we know, it may never see the light of day, but a man can hope.
