Pixel Slate hands-on: The keyboard's my favorite part

The Pixel Slate arrives later this year. We'll have a full review when we get a model to use for longer than a quick demo session. But at this price, the Pixel Slate has a big question mark hanging over it: who would buy this over a Microsoft Surface or an iPad.

Hands on: Google Pixel Slate review
Source: Techradar English
The Pixel Slate is a perplexing mobile productivity device, combining the design and appeal of a flagship 2-in-1 tablet with the starting specs of the cheapest Chromebook. Will it rise to the top of 2-in-1 tablets? Only a full review will tell.

Google Pixel Slate hands-on: An iPad Pro competitor?
Source: Android Authority English
The Google Pixel Slate comes in four prices and configurations. The base model of the Pixel Slate starts at $599 which gets you an Intel Celeron processor 4 or 8GB of RAM and 32 or 64GB of storage, respectively. The highest end model costs $1,599 and comes with an 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. These prices don’t include the $199 Slate Keyboard or the $99 Pixelbook — you’ll have to buy them separate. Even the base model’s price can add up very quickly. Without at least one of these accessories, you won’t get the most out of the Pixel Slate.

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.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
8500Y: 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 1.5 - 4.2 GHz with Hyper Threading support as well as a graphics adapter. Fastest Amber Lake-Y chip at the time of announcement.» 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.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
0.725 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).
