    Hi, I am changing careers soon, and will need a laptop.
    Is a Pixelbook enough of a machine to be efficient to use for a new Real Estate Agent ?

    That depends on the apps you're going to be running. If they run on ChromeOS, yes. If not, you may want to look for one that can run both ChromeOS and Windows (or just a small Windows laptop).

    You want to make sure you have the correct printer for Chrome, windows and ios are easier for printing. How much storage do you need? This is something else you need to think about.

    The Pixel Book is a great laptop super quick question and great screen. The pen is also another good option if you get one.

    I use my pixelbook more than any of my laptops. Not sure if you being the realty business requires you to have any special apps but I imagine everything is online these days.

    The suitability of a Pixelbook for use in the Real Estate field is highly dependent on the software and services you'll use in that capacity.

    Chrome OS isn't particularly suited well for "vertical market" apps (software that is specialized for specific lines of business). That means that if you are going to rely on something like software that standardizes the gathering of information for RE listings, then you make have difficulty finding software that will run on a Chromebook.

    I'm a fan of Chromebooks, and the Pixelbook in particular, but I wouldn't recommend one for your needs.

    I recommend looking to forums that cater to real estate agents and see what hardware/software they use and recommend. If you plan on working for an existing agency, you might want to ask them what they use.
