I don't really mind Google overpricing their own products. Think about it, it's actually a good business idea. Sell the best of the best in your field, but overprice it like hell. It's what microsoft does with the surface line, and they do it so that they're not screwing their OEM's which they get money from anyway. Google is doing the same thing, they're building the "best" you can buy in their category, and they're overpricing so as to compete a little less with the other manufacturers which pay them anyway. It's a respectful business design. Is it overpriced? Hell yeah. Is it the best product you can get in this category? Arguably yes. But is this good for the industry as a whole? Yes it is, it's a great thing for everyone in the industry.

I was so excited to get this as I am a Google/ Android enthusiast all the way and have been in the market for a solid 2 in 1. After 2 days though I am returning it. Repeated freezing, stuttering during video playback, poorly optimized Android apps etc and it's going back. I can hardly fathom that Google would release this thing with such poorly vetted software. Maybe after several updates it will get better, but after paying $1k for it I can't justify patiently waiting for it to get better. I have only used it as a tablet and other reviewers suggest it does better in laptop mode. That's all fine and dandy, but I need it to function as tablet first. Hardware-wise it's beautiful. Can't say much negative about the screen, sound, appearance, speed etc. Chrome OS just isn't ready for a tablet. Back to the drawing board Google. It looks like SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB S4 is the solution.

I'll take the Pixel Slate seriously when I see it has the same range of tablet specific apps as the iPad Pro. Until then, it's just a nice to have, not a serious contender as my everyday device. Unfortunately, it's the only pure Google/Android tablet available. As for the Pixelbook type devices... they are a less capable legacy laptop product, but with a touchscreen and gimmicky stylus.

By installling Real VNC on any Chromebook you may access any Linux, MacOS or Windows computer as a remote graphical terminal You need to install and configure Real VNC also on your MacOS, Linux or Windows computer

ChromeOS is not good *yet*. You can't expect customers to pay for something that expensive because it can't do that much. For that price I'd tell people buy a Surface or a Mac or if you have your heart set on a Chromebook get a cheap one. If it was as capable of running stuff like graphics intensive software such as Autocad, Photoshop, editing software basically demanding software then yeah you can charge what the new iPad costs because it has great software behind it. Right now all ChromeOS has is a web browser with Android baked in.

Overpriced? @ least there is a ton of choices u can choose from, u don't have to buy the most expensive one, unlike Apple there's expensive to start & just climb way up, iPad Pro being the most recent & as usual very restrictive, why bother even putting a usb-c connection on it if u can't use it to the fullest. I like u can plug in ssd's, mouse, sd cards, hell even a printer if u want on the Pixel Slate.

Based on owning the Pixelbook for a year now I would say the $700 price right now is pretty spot on. The slate should be $700 with the keyboard included. Otherwise....not worth it. And I LOVE my Pixelbook...use it every single day...all day. But would I pay $1000 for it again....no. As I said....this tech should be going DOWN in price, not up!!

I don't understand why they chose to up the price for an iterative update on the Pixelbook....Should have at least been the same price....if not less expensive...isn't that how tech works??? It's supposed to get cheaper....but for some reason with phones and tablets the prices are going UP every year.

Not sure why anyone would buy this over a Pixelbook - which is now available on discount for $699. To get the same specs, you'd have to get the $999 Pixel Slate and then add another $199 for the keyboard. Save $500 and get the Pixelbook.
