      My expectations for this Tablet were not extremely high considering some previous reviews I had read regarding this tablet. I will start out by saying it blew my expectations out of the water. This tablet is great for someone who likes the android and google eco systems but wants desktop class internet browsing. It also does something a lot of other hybrids struggle with, it is good at both being a tablet and allowing desktop browsing when needed. Starting with the overall design of the tablet. It is made out of high quality materials but it is a fingerprint magnet. This is to be expected with most high end metals. It is very thin and the screen size is just right for traveling or commuting. There is not many buttons and ports on this tablet which I like because it is a simplistic design. It has to USB-c ports which is great so that one can be used for charging. There is no headphone jack but an adapter is included in the box. One of my favorite designs is the integrated finger print reader in the power/lock button. The speakers are decent sounding and face outward toward you. The only issue with this is if you hold it and cover the speakers it could cause an issue. The USB-C charging is a nice advantage and allows for quick charging. This laptop runs Chrome OS which I originally had mixed feelings about. However, after using for a while I really like this operating system. I love that you have the ability to use all of the android apps which are great for when you want to use this system as a dedicated tablet. The biggest disadvantage to other android tablets is that you are not able to use full desktop class browsing but that is not the case here. The chrome browser is the same and works just as well as it does on any other PC. I also like that this tablet has a dedicated file system which seems to work well. Overall, I highly recommend giving this tablet a good chance. I would also recommend buying the additional keyboard and PEN accessories which will make it much more usable. Since there is no way to upgrade this tablet I would recommend getting at least the 128GB model (reviewed here). This would make a great tablet for someone who does a lot of commuting or traveling and needs a business minded tablet that is also very portable.


    • Simple Tablet, Very Heavy, Screen Lags

      This Pixel Slate is a full-size (12.3”) tablet that is thin with a clear, bright screen, but with a fairly heavy weight to it. The device comes in at 25.6 ounces; compare this to a larger (12.9”) iPad Pro which comes in at 16.5 ounces). So the weight is noticeable when carrying it around. Remember before going much further that this is a Chromebook tablet, so you’ll be running the Chromebook OS right out of the chute, but with a beta-level support for some Linux configuration and options (extremely limited at the time of release). If you’re a user that uses primarily cloud-based or SaaS types of services or applications, or your organization uses Google Apps for work (Gmail, Docs, Sheets, etc.) this will serve you well. Otherwise know that you’re limited to apps from the Google Play store, which often give you limited functionality as compared to a laptop or desktop. Boot time is quick, as should be expected from any tablet. The power button doubles as a fingerprint reader, but I found that more times than not it failed to pick up on my fingerprint, hit me with a “too many attempts” warning & forced me to use a PIN (which has to be 6 numbers or more, which seems excessive to me). Battery is actually good, I got 3-4 days or intermittent use at work out of it before getting below 20%. Always-on time will yield you around 8 hours (Google says 10 hours). The device features 2 USB-C ports, one on each corner, so you can charge the device from either the left or right side. Unfortunately, the device does not support external storage, limiting you to the internal storage only, which reduces the amount of local storage and apps you can take with you. As for downloading a movie to take on the plane you may be out-of-luck depending on what’s already on the tablet. Screen response time to me was the worst part of the device. Whether using your finger to write on the screen or the optional stylus, there was a very noticeable lag between when you make a stroke on the screen to when it appears (as compared to a 3-in-1 laptop, a Microsoft Surface, and a Samsung Note Tab, all of which I use for a variety of jobs in the office). I use OneNote fairly often and found it frustrating and distracting that you would write but it was maybe a quarter of a second before you see the writing on the screen. And while that doesn’t seem like a lot, it’s noticeable and makes writing notes much more difficult. The device has an optional external keyboard that the tablet can dock with, but skip it and get a Bluetooth keyboard. It’s too floppy for the device and doesn’t do a good job at protecting the device (see that device for my review specifically on the keyboard). Overall, it’s not a bad tablet for web-based, cloud-based, or SaaS apps and services. It more than did the job which I was using it for -- notes, e-mail, and web-based SaaS programs. The display lag for displaying handwriting for me was the worst part, in addition to the extremely heavy weight for the device. And at this price point, it’s not like there aren’t plenty of other options out there to compete with the Slate.

      The google pixel slate is hot. I like the sleek round corners, speaker placement and clear picture. If you are a fan of google, this is the ultimate tablet. For simple and complex assignments. You can turn this into a desktop and be stationed for anything. The pixel imprint lets you use your finger to sign in. Tons of apps and great storage. cameras decent but don't use it specifically for that or you might be disappointed.
