Should I go with an iPhone X and a used MacBook... or Samsung Note 8 with the Chromebook Plus?? Which combo would you guys get?

What do you mean, "a small group of people"? You have it backwards. The vast majority of people can do all their work just fine inside of a browser. Windows/Mac/Linux are the OSs that should only be recommended to small groups of people.

Okay, here's the thing, it's a very bare bones os and a bare bones no BS system. The build is cool for Google peeps, really slim and sleek. Is there any way to work on the pen touch sensitivity? I thought that was a thing? Also how hard is it to just sit your pen somewhere than have it magnetized to the side. That's not a major feature that should be a deal breaker. It looked a lil overboard on that aspect.

It's just a weird HP Spectre it looks like. For the same price you can get better specs with the Spectre

I like that despite of your channel being sponsored by all those makes who are providing you with devices to make a review about, you didn't let that affect your judgement. If you found something that feels off to you, you say it live to people. This Pixel Book is a gorgeously engineered device but thanks to your insight I can see not everyone would be happy with it. And having it flipped to tablet with a keyboard on the back that would feel strange to me too. Besides it doesn't justify the pricetag. It's still premium device with an advanced browser on it. If you need to run Photoshop or CAD you're screwed. Speaking of games. You can play only online games and Android games, period.

Just because something is redefining the industry, doesn't mean it's weird, or it will fail. The Google pixelbook reminds me of the iPhone, people thought it would fail because it doesn't have "necessary features" such as a hardware keyboard. They all said it would fail, now look at it today. I think the pixelbook will be the same way, along with all other Chromebooks.

I bought this Laptop shortly after the holidays with the intent on making it my mainstay machine for work (and personal use etc.) I was happy with my old Lenovo (at the time) but the motherboard died on me and the cost of replacing it wasn't worth the value of the computer yada yada yada (we've all been there). I'll begin by saying that I have prior experience with a chromebook having owned an acer chrome computer so this is not my first rodeo using Chrome OS. Out of the box immediately I could tell that this is easily the most well-built machine I have ever laid my hands on. It looks and feels amazing. Basically Google nailed the 2-1 (I like Marques but he doesn't know what the hell he's talking about this time around - there's nothing weird about how comfortable this Pixelbook looks and feels); whether you're in tablet mode or in a laptop position it just feels brilliant. The keyboard is crisp and responsive so typing 90 words a minute laying on your back is actually made possible. In tablet mode with the pen things are a bit more relaxed and slower-paced but with google voice you can dictate an entire essay in one go if you want - the processor is powerful on this thing so expect no delays. Speaking of using your voice - the "Google button" is friggen awesome. I find myself using it constantly even if I'm in the middle of engaging wth a Google Play app and/or Chrome app - it works seamlessly and its response time is quick. For the record I love the idea that Google is implementing this feauture more in its hardware designs because tech is headed towards a more voice-activated world to the point where I think keyboards will be a thing of the past and this laptop has made a huge step in that direction. One thing that is simply amazing is when splitting screens to an external monitor I can use Android apps on the external screen and have regular Chrome programs running on the home screen which is an excellent feature for multitasking. After saying all that I discovered that with my new profession I'm not able to get around not being able to use Adobe - off-market PDF software won't cut it which unfortunately means I'm having to return the device and buy a PC laptop instead (which kills me because I love the Pixelbook but no Adobe Acrobat Pro for Chrome has turned into a deal breaker). All-in-all this is a fantastic computer that will set the stage for Chromebooks going forward. Forget all the previous chromebooks you've seen before - THIS is the new flagship hardware that will get people thinking about making that switch to a more simplified OS existence. All we need now is software providers like Adobe to start making deals with Google so we can start divorcing microsoft from our lives completely for those among us that don't want to have anything to do with either Microsoft OR Apple for that matter.

Too bad it doesn't run Windows 10. If it did, oh boy.. I would run out and buy it this instance. P.S Blame the ghosting/stuttering on the refresh rate of the shitty panel used, not the processor!

The HP Chromebook 13 G1 is great at being a Chrome OS Driven Laptop with USB type C support for half the cost being an IT guy and mostly remote desktop into servers and other machines all day it has become my main little on the go device for work and it does about everything the Pixel book 2 does even has a 2K display that makes witching your videos really nice. :-) Oh and it pairs with all USB Type C docking stations for dual 1080p monitor experience just perfect. Please review this device or wait for Gen 2

i love 2in1's, functionality and power of laptop with size and portability of tablet. i don't game or anything like that, so don't need full laptop type power. and don't travel with it so don't need tiny tablet. of the few i've used, surface is by far the best. if i didn't need a machine to run actual programs or need to do any actual stuff beyond basic mobile stuff, i'd prob use an ipad. but for productivity and versatility, surface is spot on. can't justify these mobile tablets seeing as they're just big phones, no idea how someone could justify a mobile laptop. but there's a market for everything i guess.

Great review and made me actually laugh out loud when the pen rolls off into oblivion. That pretty much summed this thing up for me. 100 dollar pen that is basically a 100 dollar tax for idiots. Google need to step up their game or get out of the laptop business.

Art Spanjer (22 days ago)
I just bought the base model. Before I watched the 'weird' review which i just watched on my new weird machine. It is really is a nice piece of hardware. In my job we use Macs and Windows because we can't get specific software that might run on one OS, but not on another. That's a long term industry problem which is the most frustrating thing ever. My sense is Google is up and coming. But are they just a 3rd wheel? I like the feel of the keyboard, the screen is nice, I see the weird point, but do think Google is on to something. I hope so.

Google could have made the keyboard into a touch sensor buttons which is backlit like the ones you find in Android phone when you flip it into a tablet mode the lights switches off. what are you doing Google?

I have an S8, had an Iphone 5 and 6, so I've had imessage and android messages and this just further proves my point I've made countless times, Google is just taking on too much at once. They are not releasing finished products, it's always to get their foot in the game. Can we get a serious messaging app for once that will rival iMessage? Is that so much to ask? Apparently so... MKBHD is 100% correct, not worth $1000. It's an unpolished product with way too many issues like many other features of the Android OS. I am continuing to stand by Google's side with the S8 but come on get it together Google.
