Pixel Slate

Has anyone got a Pixel Slate and is it any good?

Google are knocking Ł300 off it for Black Friday and you get the keyboard for free.

I've got an old Chromebook that is on it's last legs and want to replace it so was wondering if this would do the job.

There's only a single review on Amazon (that I saw) and it's terrible!

I knew it was cancelled, and I recall how slow the base model was to be pretty much unusable, so you needed to get the high end model to make it any good, and then the price was so high as to be silly.

Shame, but it's a thing Google can't seem to just get right.
The general feeling seems to be, the problem is, Hardware is not how they make money, unlike Apple, so it's more of a sideline sort of range or products.

That said I have a Nexus and Pixel phone, but like others, I wish they were more like Apple in being as focused on the hardware itself.

But tis what it tis.....
