The Pixel Slate is a bit of a perplexing device at first glance. It’s wrapped in a premium frame with first-class build materials and new technologies at the forefront. However, it’s also mighty expensive for what’s on offer.

It has a gorgeous screen, the design is slick, and if you’re prepared to pay for it there's all the power and performance of a premium ultraportable. The only obvious downfall is the cost. With the price rapidly soaring past the £700 mark with the detachable keyboard, we'll be expecting the Pixel Sl...

Another beautiful bit of kit you don't need at this price

from The Inquirer

It's too expensive. End of. If you're not fussed about Windows, the top-end Huawei MediaPad is £350. Justifying at least double that for Chrome OS device just seems bonkers. Yes, the screen is lovely. Yes, the sound is above average. But when push comes to shove, it's a tablet. Google does it well. Others do it much, much better.

As thin as a phone but with a 12.3in screen, the Pixel Slate is a well-built and attractive tablet. The entry price gets you fairly low-specification components, and we don’t yet know how much the higher-spec models will be. And with the exorbitant cost of the optional (but not optional) keyboard, the Slate isn’t as cheap as it might appear. The Slate’s software needs polishing before launch, but it’s well worth understanding exactly what you can and can’t run on ChromeOS before buying.

It has a gorgeous screen, the design is slick, and if you’re prepared to pay for it there's all the power and performance of a premium ultraportable. The only obvious downfall is the cost. With the price rapidly soaring past the £700 mark with the detachable keyboard, we'll be expecting the Pixel Slate to deliver big things when it arrives for review.

A bold proposition

from Pocket-lint

Overall, the Google Pixel Slate looks premium, feels great to use, and with the keyboard dock added it functions very well. If, that is, you're ok with using a Chrome OS device all day - because the Slate is ultimately a fancy 2-in-1 Chromebook - and the considerable asking price. Both of which are big, chin-scratching questions.

Has all the puzzle’s pieces, but they don’t quite fit

from Digital Trends

Google has all the right pieces of the puzzle; Google Play, attractive hardware, and a wide variety of devices. Still, from what we’ve experienced so far, the Pixel Slate hasn’t figured out how those pieces should fit together.

What Hi-Fi

Premium design, impressive specs

The fact you can customise the spec of your Pixel Slate will be a big plus factor for some. This sort of flexibility combined with its very decent specification should make for an interesting proposition.
