Google Pixel Slate

The Pixel Slate is Google's first Chrome OS detachable

The 2-in-1 runs a redesigned version of the desktop software.

Too expensive for its specs. Better get a Surface.

If want traditional laptop, then confirm get a windows device. People who consider this probably want to use Android apps + some desktop function.

Not everything is about $value vs specs...

Go check out the Surface Pro ... not that great review especially on the aftersale support.
Windows ? Good for desktop and laptops perhaps...

Apps is also another thing to consider... though I not sure about chrome OS but if android apps can work, then that will be aplenty and good.

New Google tablet in awhile.
They say until the display like some new tech, what electrons move faster etc.

Maybe wait for reviews to come out first, see got what bugs and performance comparisons to other Chromebooks.

Really too expensive for the usage.
The price also before you add the keyboard and the pen right?

Yup, the price just the tablet itself.

Most saying that all the new products are overpriced.

Seems like there is no way or store to buy Google Pixel Slate in Google right now?

I haven't use Chromebook before, so trying to pick up a good Chrome Tablet to experience but it seems that no Singapore store is selling?

Is chrome os really worth the experience and wait or I might as well pick up a Surface Go? 🤔

I used to be using an old Samsung tablet but am looking for a new tablet now.

Since Google doesn't seems to continue support on Android tablets now, so I am looking at Chrome tablet or Surface Go as alternative
