Does the Google Pixel Chromebook support 128GB SD cards? [YES!]

I can confirm that Google’s Pixel running Chrome OS supports 128GB SD cards. In addition to just being cool, it also means that significant additional storage can be purchased for a reasonable price! The 128GB card I used generally costs around $90 USD, woot! :-)

Encouragingly, the SD card inserts securely and fully into the Pixel… with no annoying bits sticking out!
