Anonymous, 22 Sep 2018Overpriced netbooks. Google should just give up. Nobody wants her sh*t. She should go back ... moreBut chrome os has google play store so it could run android apps too and soon Linux apps/programs (idk what they're called). It provides way more functionality than tablets and netbooks for sure.
I am not sure about prices! I have HP Spectre and Lenovo Felx 5 both i7 8th gen, 16 GB RAM and Dedicated Graphics, 4K 15inch screen (both), 512 GB SSD and 1TB HDD etc.. for $1450 & $950 respectively...
For those wondering, this isn't the pixelbook 2. That will remain as a traditional laptop form factor. This tablet is mostly competing against the Surface Pro/iPad Pro and can be a real contender.
I had a Pixelbook and it was the best gadget.I have ever owned. Perfect design (Example: one USB-C on each side, v useful!), performance, weight, keyboard etc. Just one problem: No Adobe CC, so one may as well spend the money on a similar priced range Lenovo Yoga Windows machine, install Chrome and Adobe CC and you have the best of both worlds.
Second Adobe release FULL CC in the cloud, then a high end Chromebook will make sense for power users.
Otherwise they are best suited to students, writers, bloggers, cloud based business users, but not creative professionals.
Google should just give up. Nobody wants her sh*t. She should go back in mimicking apple and finally build a light weight android tablet.
Enough with this Chrome OS silliness. This is an overpriced toy...
1499$ or more... maybe 1999$
4K screen and so on... Super hardware for Chromebook!
Definitely interesting device!
I have been waiting a long time to see 2 in 1 Chromebook with reasonable good specks!
This is good looking, slimm, can be used in tablet mode like android tablet and with keyboard like chromebook. Definitely something that can compete with iPad Pro series.
In android environment there is none that can compete with iPad Pro. In PC environment MS Surface pro has the means, but it is more a PC and less a tablet. This is more in the middle.
Walter C. Dornez, 21 Sep 2018Man, this hardware looks pretty sleek. Hope they price it appropriatelyFrom 999$ to 1499$ is my estimation based on earlier Pixel devices... maybe a little bit more.

I'd say it's awesome
It may finally replace Android tablet with true tablet/desktop morphing.
add a pen and this might be what the galaxy tab S failed to deliver.
I had high hopes for chrome OS on the tab S this year :(
Google can't be trusted when it comes to the tablet. They make a great product but drop the ball in the middle. Even in Mobile, they dropped the ball for Nexus and went with Pixel...Not sure how long this is going to last1
Hopefully the support from google is long and the price isn't too high. One could accuse the device of having too big a bezel on the top, bottom and sides but then again if the extra space means the keyboard is well laid out and there is good travel I'm not going to berate Google for the extra bezels.
Battery needs to be nice and big and the charger needs to be high wattage like MBP from Apple.
Sun Sand, 21 Sep 2018A "USB C" port each on either sides is perfect. Google was amongst the first to introduce ... moreIt's actually a really valuable feature that virtually nobody talks about. The freedom to charge whichever side suits you is great for organising your work space to your needs.
Maren, 21 Sep 2018The support for google devices will be max three years, after that there is no more exclusivity.That's no necessarily true for Pixelbook's though.
Man, this hardware looks pretty sleek. Hope they price it appropriately
That is some unfortunate bad wording in the headline, for anyone half interested in technology. Will it run Windows 10 in S mode? :)
