Google Pixel Slate

Engadget Review

Based purely on its hardware, the Pixel Slate is impressive. Unfortunately, the whole package is hampered by a confusing software experience and a high price. If you’re looking for a Chrome device, there are plenty of less expensive options that work just as well, if not better.

Pros

  • Gorgeous display
  • Good battery life
  • Excellent speakers
  • Full desktop browser on a tablet is extremely useful

Cons

  • Performance as a tablet is subpar
  • Android apps on Chrome OS are still a confusing (and sometimes buggy) mess
  • Very expensive
  • Pricey keyboard folio doesn’t work well on your lap
