Reviews for the Google Pixel Slate, Core i5

70% Google Pixel Slate Review

There so much about the Google Pixel Slate to love, including its beautiful screen, comfortable keyboard, great sound and long battery life. Unfortunately, this machine comes with a few asterisks, including some notable bugs that Google should fix soon. It will take longer, though, for Google Play apps to feel like native tablet apps.

84% Google Pixel Slate review: A solid Chrome OS device with some issues
Source: Techaeris English
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.

Google Pixel Slate Intel Core m3 vs i5: Use the $200 savings to buy a keyboard
Source: Zdnet.com English
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.

Intel UHD Graphics 615: Integrated graphics card in some Amber Lake Y-series processors (5 Watt TDP) with 24 EUs (GT2) and no dedicated graphics memory. Clocks with up to 1000 MHz depending on the CPU Model. Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
8200Y: Extremely efficient ULV-SoC (System-on-a-Chip) for tablets and fanless notebooks based on the Amber Lake architecture which is basically a Kaby Lake chip produced in the  improved 14nm+ process (no 14nm++) with higher clock speeds and 5 Watt TDP. Includes two CPU cores clocked at 1.3 - 3.9 GHz with Hyper Threading support as well as a graphics adapter.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
12.3":

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.

0.721 kg:

This weight is typical for small tablets.


Google:

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.
The products achieve above average ratings in the reviews (as of 2016).


74.6%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
