What should I buy for the best 2-1 as my secondary device? The pixel slate, surface go/pro or the new apple ipad or something else?

as pointed out, this is a concept machine, made avilable for those who wish to buy it the reason it has i5, 8GB & 128GB is not for CHROME or ANDROID, it's for LINUX, so it can be used to develop software on it. Chrome OS Stable Channel Gets Linux Apps! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Q4epV4HtHQ

this is a CHROME OS device, which means it's .. manageable - a big plus for organisations Managing Chromebooks with the Google Admin Console ( 26,000,000 Chromebooks in use in American public schools ) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_vLX1BvV4A&t=7s

guys, why don't you review the true flagship android tablet : samsung tab s4, rather than reviewing pixel slate. How can you say : ...this thing just flies, oh my god! just have a look at that stuttering. Also, you guys review only few top brands, but the android is not limited to those 5 or 6 brands.

Google should be ashamed of themselves for using a Celeron Processor in 2018. You might as well not even consider this version as part of the line up. There’s a reason YouTubers are not publishing reviews using this version, talk about being laggy.

I commend your review, most of the reviewers on Youtube are only reviewing the Pixel Chromebooks because they are from Google but for that one week of review that's the entirety of familiarity with the platform. The fact that you can even recommend the HP Chromebook X2 would be an in platform alternative to the Pixel Slate, vs only mentioning the Surface or iPad Pro is awesome. Wish more reviewers would hold themselves to a higher standard that if you're not familiar with a product or platform then do everyone a favor...and just don't review it. Well at least until you can give the device it's fair justice.

Maybe I missed something, but other than being WAAAY over powered for a Chrome tablet (and having a nice screen), what makes this special? Chrome on a i5 (let alone an i7)...why? An I3 or even a Pentium would be lightning fast.

That's a lot of money for a tablet !!! MicroSD extension card or USB type C to extand memory ? Water Splashproof ? Battery/screen easily replaced ? For this price we can get real computer more durable . For sure this pixel is beautyful but too expensive to be honest. 399$ instead of 799$ next black friday perhaps.

Is Crome OS even capable of replacing Windows or Mac OS? Otherwise Chromebooks can be viable PC replacement for a lot of people.

Ipad Pros and Pixel Slates are for people who decided to be butthurt about Microsoft Surface stuff. It's good when the choices are out there, but that's the thing with choices - they're mostly irrational. Because if there's a device that's the best of both worlds - it's a device running Windows, however unhip that might sound.

The real problem here is that because Google wants to put the $ 600. 00 in the i7 much more expensive than the i5 which is $ 999.00 and apart it is much more expensive than the Surfer Pro 6 of microsof .. That is inseparable and has no logic. The i7 must cost $1200 and the keyboard is $ 200.00 and the pen is worth $ 100.00

Personally I hate that the app tray just becomes the desktop like iOS. Just keep the UI consistent. If I liked iOS I would just buy iPad pro that we all know is still miles better than this.

This looks really laggy.  This is totally unacceptable in 2018.  I'm a big android fan, but the Ipad totally kills this.  The only thing that this has over the ipad, is the real file manager and fully functioning USB C. Hopefully, they can fix this with software updates.

I just don’t get it. What is this device for? Presuming you need the keyboard, it’s $800+ for a base model with a painfully slow processor. If you up to the i5, then you’re looking at, what, $1200 w/keyboard? At that price point, you’re better off with a Windows or Mac laptop of even an iPad Pro. I want to like it... but I just don’t get it.

Lol an Intel Celeron processor in late 2018. I hate Apple but the new iPad Pro probably absolutely destroys this thing in Benchmarks and overall usability. The only thing it really has on the iPad is the file manager and other software flexibility. 😔

So glad I went with the 12.9 iPad Pro 2018 instead of the pixel slate. This one looks extremely laggy and half bake. I had such high hope for this tablet since google made it.

Glad i got a fully loaded yoga 920 for the same price as as an ipad pro plus the keyboard. 8th gen i7, 512 gb ssd, 4k screen, 16 gb ram. The thing flies even on windows and can do more than either tablet. I tried to replace my laptop with an ipad pro not too long ago and realized i jist cant do that so now my ipad pro is my backup device in my backpack when my laptop finally dies. Ipads are so much fun though.

PixelBooks and high-end Pixel Slates have lower power 7th and 8th gen respectively, Dual-Core Y series i5 and i7 CPUs, which also have a slower HD and UHD 615 GPUs. Instead of the higher power 8th gen Quad-Core U series i5 and i7 CPUs of the Surface Pro 6, with the faster UHD 620 GPU. And apparently, only the the i7 versions of the PixelBook and Slate come with NVMe SSDs.
