The Google Pixel Slate is now up for pre-order with orders shipping on November 22. Although not the first Chrome OS tablet to hit the market, it is the first flagship Chrome OS tablet to come from Google itself signaling that the company is serious about moving the platform forward. It also comes on the back of Google’s failure to make an impact with its own Android tablet, the forgotten Pixel C.

Google has been working hard to make Chrome OS more powerful and flexible, while still keeping the operating system relatively light weight. Not only does the Pixel Slate run Android apps, it can also run full Android apps. A recently added split-screen mode as well as the advantage of running a full desktop browser as well as mouse support makes it a truly compelling alternative to Apple’s dominant iPad.

Unlike the Apple’s iPad Pro line, which it is directly competing against, the one option that Google has not built into the Pixel Slate is an LTE variant – all the available models are Wi-Fi-only. The Pixel Slate starts from US$599 which brings with it an Intel Celeron chip, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The four variants range in price right up to US$1,599 for a model equipped with a Core i7, 16GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

At the time of writing, the more powerful Core i5 and i7 variants had sold out of their initial stock leaving only the Core m3 and Celeron variants up for grabs.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
