    I had to try to pause the video to get a look at the pen.. If you are going to bring up price the one with the I7 is the one I would want to hear…

    I use Tethering with my Chromebook all the time … nice Idea,
    but with an software update you can do it with every Chromebook.

    If you have a Chromebook, its to use ChromeOS. If you use ChromeOS, you do everything in the cloud. That's how the whole ecosystem is designed. Adding all that memory and storage and proc speed is pointless if you don't have any local programs [death to apps] to take advantage of them.
    This video, and every other one I have seen, has not shown me anything that my current Android phone, or cheap $150 Chromebook can do too.
    Sure it looks pretty. But if I'm gonna drop a G on something that has little substance and looks pretty I'll call an escort… /s /ormaybenot?

    This is a joke, 1000 dollars laptop can't install any program except silly chrome apps and Andorid apps. The plastic thing…the pen cost 100 dollar? This is a joke.

    Interestingly, the second image you circled was a digital render (not a true photo) made in-house over at Android Police a few months back, and you can see the faint Android Police watermark in the middle. In the search results, the first result was for an Android Police article even though that same render was also referenced and included by many many other news outlets on their websites. Pretty slick, Google!

    I remember people making fun of Apple for making a $100 pen…. now look at Google

    Why does everyone seem to disregard Pixel C as existing. That is more what this updates….it's a combination of the Pixel Chromebook and the Pixel C.

  • October 9, 2017 at 1:27 pm

    This def isn't a "main" laptop. This is a supplement device. I currently have a Pixel C. I'm considering upgrading to this since the C still has resale value.
