The Pixel Slate Chrome OS tablet is a thing that should’ve been great but kind of ended up meh. Not because it’s a bad device, mind you, but rather that it was just so damn expensive. Compared to the regular Pixelbook, it was overpriced. Put it up against the Pixelbook Go and it’s even more clear that it just costs too much.
But now, Google is fixing that. It knocked $300 off the m3/8GB RAM/64GB storage model, bringing it down to just $499. The i5/8GB/128GB model is down to $599 (from $999), and the i7/16GB/256GB-packing powerhouse is just $899—that’s a whopping $700 off. Those are some pretty stellar prices all around, though the $599 i5 device is probably the sweet spot for most people.
If that’s still not sweet enough, though, Google is also throwing in the $99 Pixelbook Pen that you’ll likely never use as well as the keyboard of your choice—you can grab the first-party $199 Pixel Slate Keyboard or third-party $159 Brydge G-Type keyboard completely free of charge.
That’s a pretty stellar deal across the board for anyone looking for a Chromebook. Or a Chrome OS tablet. Or, you know, both. For comparison, the Pixelbook Go—which is neither a tablet nor convertible—is still priced at $649, $849, and $1,399 for the m3, i5, and i7 models respectively.
