If you’ve been holding out for a deal on Google’s Pixel Slate 2-in-1, today could be your lucky day. Google and authorized retailers have knocked $200 off all available models of the Pixel Slate. I say available because both Celeron models of the Slate have been absent for months now and I have a sneaking […]
Google’s Chromebook hardware has been pretty straightforward since the inception of the Chrome OS. With their first entry into the fold with the Chromebook Pixel followed by the 2015 version of that device, the Pixelbook, and finally the Pixel Slate, Google hasn’t veered too far from their original plan with their in-house Chromebooks. Premium builds […]
The Pixel Slate launched to less-than-stellar reviews in part thanks to some serious animation jank present in overview mode on Chromebooks that has been present for quite some time. To be fair, this issue wasn’t just an issue with the Slate, but because of its status as a tablet first, the overview animations are a […]
We recently put out a video introducing Joe and Gabriel to the channel and in that video, you might have noticed that Joe said he uses the Pixel Slate as his daily Chromebook and the MacBook Pro to edit videos. So as a traditional Mac user, Joe wanted to take a couple minutes and share […]
In the realm of detachable Chromebooks, there are few at this point. Two, specifically, and we’ve been asked time and again to pit them against one another to determine which is the best purchase. Between the Pixel Slate and the HP x2, there are lots of similarities and just as many differences. While it isn’t […]
In a not-totally-surprising move yesterday, Google hinted very strongly that another #madebyGoogle device is in the works and will be announced “down the road.” At the annual Cloud Next event, in a session titled Google Hardware For Business, a juicy hint was dropped that is making it quite clear that Google is not out of […]
We don’t get the opportunity to do versus videos as often as I’d like, but we’re ready to try and change that in the coming months. The truth is, with review units it is pretty difficult to catch two interesting devices in the office at the same time. Right now we have quite a few […]
If you’ve used a Chrome OS tablet like the new Pixel Slate, Chromebook Tab 10, or the HP Chromebook x2, you may have come across an odd and annoying trait they all seem to share: jank and lag. While not surprising on the under-powered Acer Chromebook Tab 10 and it’s Rockchip OP1 processor, this behavior […]
Chrome OS tablets are still a pretty new thing here at the end of 2018. After all, we didn’t see the first true Chrome OS tablet until the Acer Chromebook Tab 10 hit the scene in the early parts of summer. Six months is hardly enough time for a new form factor to fully emerge […]
Google did an interesting thing this year when they launched the Pixel Slate: they included a 3rd-party accessory in the hands-on portion of the event. While Google-made accessories aren’t too out of place at this yearly media show, devices from companies other than Google are quite rare.
One of the benefits of being a Chromebook user is the schedule of regular updates your device will always receive quietly and in the background. For all the things many people think Chromebooks lack, they can’t argue with the fantastic update experience Chrome OS offers its users.
This one hurts quite a bit. Back in August, we reported that the Pixel Slate (then known as ‘Nocturne’) was being tested with the ultra-fast NVMe storage available in the Pixelbook’s top-level configuration. The commit was pretty straightforward and everything was pointing clearly towards the Pixel Slate equipping this much-improved storage at least on the […]
