Black Friday is the very best time to start shopping for deals on tech, but you don't have to wait until the end of the month to snag some awesome deals. Over at Amazon, you can save $350 on the Google Pixel Slate (opens in new tab), dropping its price down to only $449. That's the lowest price we've ever tracked on the tablet.
The model featured is the 12.3-inch tablet with an 8th-gen Intel Core m3 processor, 8GB RAM, and 64GB of internal storage. It has a USB-C port on either side, powerful front-facing speakers and runs Google's Chrome OS with access to Google Play for apps.
Our review of the Pixel Slate on release praised its display, touch-friendly desktop interface, and long, 12-hour battery life. It works great with the Pixel Slate Pen (opens in new tab) and Pixel Slate Keyboard (opens in new tab) if you plan to use it as a laptop replacement. That being said, those accessories are sold separately. Google recently unveiled its Pixelbook Go (opens in new tab) which starts at $649 and seems to be a rethinking of Google's hardware strategy, taking on a traditional laptop-like form factor at an affordable price. While that device features a touchscreen, it doesn't let you remove it to use it as a tablet, so the device that suits you best may well depend on your preference.
While there are several official accessories for the Pixel Slate, we've also rounded up the best keyboards, stands, USB-C hubs and more from third parties so you can accessorize in the way that suits you best.
Get this or see if Pixelbook Go gets a sale...?
Best Buy will have this tablet at the same price with a free keyboard and pen for Black Friday.
Google has this with the pen and keyboard included. Ordered 2 this morning
This would have done well if they launched a SKU like this. $450 with the specs and bundled accessories is fair.
It is fair, but better than the Go at $650? Is the Go worth $200 more?
Gotta make a pros and cons list.....pixel slate better screen but aspect ratio is debatable depending on use . Tablet vs laptop form factor....go keyboard better than slate.... I pulled the trigger on slate but it's really on what you need
Hopefully it's better than an iPad which has proven to be utterly useless...
