Reviews for the Google Pixel Slate, Core i5
Google’s Pixel Slate definitely is a mixed bag. On one hand, the higher processor models are great for mobile productivity — with some caveats and issues. Chrome OS is definitely has a nicer feeling on a tablet of this size over Android. While you can do most productivity work using Chrome OS or Android Apps, there’s still some “full-blown” software like Photoshop or Lightroom that you’ll be missing.

There are a lot of good ideas in the Pixel Slate, but this pricey Google tablet doesn't do enough to distinguish itself from the plenty of other great Chromebook options out there.

I'm not trying to convince anyone to buy a Pixel Slate over an iPad or Surface Pro device since we each have our own needs and desires. However, for me, the Pixel Slate is nearly perfect and has performed like a champ since the day I started testing out the evaluation unit. I have no regrets with my Core m3 model and look forward to more extensive testing over the coming weeks and months.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for small tablets.
Since 2012 Google has also distributed tablets and smartphones. These products are frequently tested. While Google is not one of the most important hardware manufacturers, the customer interest is higher than in various East Asian manufacturers.
