There's not long to go now until Google's New York hardware event on October 15. And while the search giant is expected to reveal a raft of devices, it's the tech giant's new Chromebook, the Pixelbook Go, that's attracting attention right now, thanks to a extensive selection of photos that have been leaked ahead of the product's launch. 

The device is already being referred to as 'Google's MacBook', but the photos reveal one unusual design feature that is a far cry from Apple's sleek aesthetic. (If you're in the market for a new laptop, take a look at our predictions for the best Black Friday MacBook deals.)
