The 12.3-inch tablet has an Intel Core m3 processor, 8GB RAM, and 64GB of storage. It has a USB-C port on either side, front-facing speakers, and runs Google's Chrome OS. It works great with the Pixel Slate Keyboard as a laptop replacement.
The Google Pixel Slate has two USB-C ports and POGO pins for a keyboard. That’s it. So if you want to use a Google Pixel Slate with most of the peripherals in your life, you need to grab one of these hubs.
The Google Pixel Slate is sold as a tablet, but gosh darn it, you should really, really get a keyboard, both to take advantage of Chrome OS's keyboard shortcuts and because it just makes your Slate more productive!
