    Welp, I jumped in and bought a pixelbook. I'm waaaaaay to excited. I'm looking for accessories. I'm considering a usb c adapter, screen protector all that jazz.

    Before I blow a bunch of money on amazon can I get some recommendations? I dont wanna buy a bunch of stuff I think I want and end up not using it.

    Why not use the PB for awhile and then what you need/want as the need/want arises ??

    Congratulations! @billchat offered sound advice. Use it for a while and make a list of those things that cause you to think, "it would be nice if..."

    I've got the Google Pen, a USB-C mini-hub that has some full-sized USB ports, HDMI, and SD card slot... and looking for a matte screen protector.

    Good idea... like I said I'm way too excited. I know for sure I'm gonna need a good screen protector and probably a pixelbook pen.

    The pen is pretty great! I bought a hard shell for mine bc I take it out of the house a lot but if I didn't I'd 100% get a skin.

    The pen is a nice thing to have, but I'm not sure I'd pay full price for it. I found mine on eBay for about $60. Got the Bellroy pen clip, which is really handy (and looks nice too!).

    $60 for a new one or was it used?

    I can't quite remember. It came in the original box, and the seller is a reseller, so it might have been used or refurbished. Regardless, it works perfectly! Oh, and now that I look back at the eBay order, it was actually $55 ...

    I just received from Amazon and applied the iCarez matte screen protector. Application was dead easy... perfect, no dust, no bubbles. I don't think that it is as good as the Mr Shield matte protectors I have on all of my other devices, but iCarez is the only one selling a matte protector for the Pixelbook. Text looks crisp, but areas of solid color have a slight amount of "shimmer" to it. Not enough to be distracting, but more than a Mr Shield protector. (that effect will diminish the more I use the touchscreen)

    This easily hides fingerprint smudges which had become more prevalent since I really started using the PB in "tablet mode" and there's a nice little resistance for the Google Pen which makes it feel a bit more like a pen on paper experience.
