When we tested the Celeron-based Pixel Slate late last year, we discovered it was a huge identity crisis that did not make it as good as a laptop or tablet. Well, if you appreciate the form factor that Google has decided on, and like to play with better specs to avoid the sluggishness of the poor entry-level model, you can purchase a $ 250 slate for a limited time.

If you're looking for a tablet to watch content and surf the web, Chrome OS lets you surf the web quickly and easily. However, we recommend this to the use of Android apps, except where absolutely necessary. It features a 1

2.3-inch LCD screen and front-facing speakers that offer one of the best experiences with ecosystem media consumption (though that does not say too much). There are also two USB-C ports, a fingerprint sensor and a nice 10-hour battery. Ultimately, you'll probably pay for the light weight and low maintenance of a Chromebook in a beautifully designed case.

The Google Store offers the same discount, but only if you buy a Pixel Slate keyboard or a Brydge G-Type keyboard – the $ 160 Brydge board may be a better idea laptop-if that thing, if that Your habit is.
