Now that the Pixelbook Go is official, some people may be reconsidering Google’s premium tablet for more robust features such as pen support, fingerprint sensor and the ability to create a versatile 2-on-1 when paired with the #madebygoogle or Brydge G-type keyboards. Given the fact that the internals are practically identical, picking up the Slate at a discount may be a better option for many users.
While the bundle deals on the Slate and keyboard have gone by the wayside, there’s still a chance to score some serious savings thanks to a killer sale from Brydge and a discount on the Slate via Amazon. For a limited time, Brydge is selling their arguably better G-Type Slate keyboard at the record low price of $79.99. That’s 50% off the regular MSRP. You can pair that with the Core m3, 8GB/64GB Slate that’s 25% off at Amazon and you’ll come in roughly $50 cheaper than the entry-level Pixelbook Go that sports the same specs.
As far as Chromebooks go, the Pixel Slate is still one of the best around when it comes to all-around specs and capabilities. Despite its lackluster reception by many, pairing it with the Brydge keyboard makes for a usable laptop experience and let’s be honest, it’s a beautiful machine with a gorgeous display and great speaker. If you’ve been on the fence, now may be your best chance to snag one while the getting is good.
