    I've been extremely disappointed with the Apple and Google tablets, and the surface pro is simply too expensive. Lack of mouse and storage support forced me to give my iPad pro to my parents, and I returned my pixel book because it just couldn't do enough.
    Believe it or not, I wound up getting a Lenovo Miix tablet with an 8th gen i7, full windows 10, and an *included* stylus pen and detachable keyboard for like $800. Aside from relatively poor battery life (well, it's windows...), it's been better in almost every other aspect for day to day use.
    When are Android and iOS devices going to seriously step up their game?

    Yogas are great too, my Yoga 720 15" serves me great for school, it's both powerful enough to run matlab, solidworks and whatever I need, (has an i7 and a gtx 1050) and rather slim, frankly it has no compromises in terms of being a laptop and being a tablet, I use OneNote for all my notebooks and it's great :) only downside is there's no magnet for the pen, maybe the newer models do have that.
    Also it's cheaper than a surface haha

    Tried the i5 version, returned both keyboard and slate to Google a week after.
    Cause I realized, what the slate can do, my Huawei p20 pro can do the same, just need a monitor, keyboard, mouse and docking station which will not cost me over $1300...

    I love my Chromebook I've been using my Lenovo Chromebook for years. But i wouldn't spend more than £500/$600 on one, you're just better off using a windows laptop if you have that budget.

    I just want Lenovo to make another Thinkpad tablet with the swivel-down screen. :c
    I still use a Thinkpad X220t and it's plenty powerful enough for what I need it to do, but the screen resolution is tiny by today's standards and the battery life after 8 years of use is abysmal.
    I'm not a fan of the Yoga styled tablet convertibles because I don't like how in tablet mode, they leave the keyboard exposed, which just seems like either an invitation for literally anything to get stuck in your keyboard or for a keycap to get accidentally busted off. "Slate" style tablets like this are alright I guess but they don't give much in the way of user servicability.

    What about Linux apps that you can run on newer Chromebooks? You never even mentioned or tried that. The reason to enable them on Chromebook is to make it closer to a desktop. Without them, it's like a few years ago: a browser with android, non-productive apps.

    Still using a surface pro 4, still works beautifully. What the hell is the point in this overpriced piece of crap when I could get a surface pro 6 for the same price or less and know for certain that I'll be getting something that works better than what I already have and that actually functions as a laptop, a tablet and a graphics tablet?

    You can run Linux side by side with ChromeOS, no need to reboot between the 2 systems or anything inconvenient like that. Hell you can even run your Linux desktop environment in a chrome tab! This should solve any complaints you have that a chrombook doesnt function well enough as a real desktop.

    Why is Google still pushing for ChromeOS when they could have taken the opportunity to redesign Android for tablets and desktops? Android is pretty open, with the ability to connect to external storage without hoping that there is an app that supports it, it also has a lot of productivity apps and is pretty scalable to most screen types and sizes. Best of all, it runs Android apps natively duh. The Samsung Galaxy S4 does a pretty decent job integrating a desktop like experience into a tablet even if it was very dodgy at first.

    When it comes to the pen-lag:
    Does the software you tried it in have any kind of "Stroke Smoothing"?
    Because that does exactly that. It delays the stroke and calculates a smoother path.

    I can see a college student going for the iPad Pro or the Surface Pro based on preference. The iPad's software is good, but the hardware is not as refined. Meanwhile, my Surface Pro's hardware experience is amazing, but the software is unreliable. But this Pixelbook's software is too light for productivity, and the hardware is not nearly as refined as Microsoft's surface lineup, or even Apple's iPad Pro. And for the same price as both of those devices, I can't see anyone picking it over them.
