Pixelbook is a $1000 2-in-1 laptop/tablet and it's super weird.

I'm that one consumer who can never justify any extra cost for "extra features". I think these "features" are just some means for producer to get that scrap of extra money from you without any significant benefits.
Common peapple, common problems... Just try to think that switching to Chrome OS is like switching your diesel powered VW Golf with a low powered Tesla electric Car in 2018. Well Done Google. (writing this on $149 Chromebook)
Chrome os plus android and with minimal work windows and Ubuntu ...its a great luxury buy I’ve got mine to run OS X via virtual box and it’s honestly not bad I use it for final cut true you sacrifice render time but it offers more than a mac
Wtf is Googles problem in naming products? Chrome cast, chrome browser, chrome os and chrome book?
Don't even get me started on the google now crap... Ever tried searching for specific information on these?
For such smart people they can't get simple things right. Stupid !
Thank you for the review. I really like the design of the pixelbool. Like REALLY like it. However not very useful for me since its running chromeOS. Dont like the display either and i really dont need the tablet mode.
weird review. To recommend tablet instead a laptop is stupid. All the time MKBHD is comparing Pixelbook with Apple and from time to time with Microsoft. Apple Macbook pro starts from 1299$! Do you know that? In the same time Surface book with same CPU is 999$. Stylus you say.... "Who need a stylus?" And you recommend Apple. MKBHD, you are so biased.
I don't see why this is so hard to recommend, I get why the chromeOS is weird, but other than that it looks better than an iPad or a surface because it's fantastic hardware. This looks like it's a great device. By calling it weird all you're doing is making people not like it already. Besides, a similar surface is twice the price of the pixelbook, and you can't get a surface for $1000. (one that's worth it anyways.)
Among a lot of things, he also misses the fact this is a good alternative to android tablets for people who want something with better productivity. I believe this is the largest portable device with native android app support.

And yet he has no knowledge in computer science, or software engineering. Only "IT".....
But alas the millions of followers........
Absolute waste of money. People throw shots at Apple for their pricing. And what the hell is this? And a 100 dollar pencil that NEEDS batteries? Both the Chromebook and their skimpy pen isn’t weird, it’s a joke
Bought this for my husband this afternoon. He loves the form factor, the resolution, the keyboard, the touch screen. He kinda misses the home and end buttons and the delete key. He's editing his youtube videos he recorded this afternoon. So far, so good. He did say it's funny how you take some things for granted. Things you're used to (on his pc) when they're not there. I'm sure he'll have very few complaints about the Pixelbook. If there are things that bug him he'll just use his pc. In terms of price, yeah of course, there are less expensive ones out there as well as more expensive ones. He always researches the heck out of stuff like this and had no issues spending the money. He's worked extremely hard the past 12 months and the work bonus was very generous. So why not treat yourself, which he did!!! 👍🏻
Google really needs to step it up. This is getting embarrassing. The pixel is Almost broken with the recent updates. The fingerprint sensor is trash because of software. The bottom of the screen has a dead zone after update. The swiping is broke. I mean am i missing something here? The actual android dev can't make stable software for a phone they designed in house? wtf google. And now the release this thing? just Wow
