Google's Pixel Slate tablet discounted to $499 ($300 off), includes free pen and keyboard

For as flawed a Chromebook as it is, the Pixel Slate may still be your future second computing option. But when the Google Store and other retailers have kept the tablet along with its accessories have kept close to their full price into 2020, perhaps you probably ruled it out. Well, what if you could pick up the whole kit and kaboodle starting at just $499? You can now.

Pixel Slate shipments from Black Friday have been delayed for more than a month, but the wait should be over soon

The Pixel Slate may not be the most beloved Chrome OS device out there, but when prices plummeted during Black Friday last year, a lot of people still decided to give Google's tablet/laptop hybrid a go. Unfortunately, it looks like not only the device itself is a beautiful mess, but its distribution is subpar as well, as many are still waiting for their discounted Slate to ship more than a month after purchasing it. They might finally receive their order this month though, judging from an email Google sent to a Redditor.

Google is not going to make the Chromebook of my dreams, and I have to let it go

I wanted so much more for Chrome OS. But when Google announces the expected "Pixelbook Go" on October 15, I expect to be left wishing for something that will simply never be.

From the moment they came on the scene I was excited about the concept behind Chromebooks: a light operating system that can run on cheap hardware and handle just about all of a person’s computing basics. Introduced at a time when Windows Vista was still a painful and recent memory and Apple was beginning to alienate longtime OS X devotees with frustrating changes (I still recall repeatedly shaking my fist at “El Capitan”), the idea of a simplified OS on commodified and trivially replaceable hardware seemed to me to be just what the industry, and millions of consumers, needed.

The Pixel Slate is effectively up to $450 off with this keyboard bundle deal

 

In a move that should come as a surprise no one, the Pixel Slate is on sale once again. At launch, the Pixel Slate wasn't exactly well received. Initial reviews, including our own, took issue with slow performance, unreliable Bluetooth connectivity, and an exorbitant price that made it hard to recommend. However, this latest promotion may tempt those who were initially interested in the Pixel Slate.

Only three models remain available for purchase after Google discontinued the sluggish, Celeron-powered entry level Pixel Slate. The remaining models, which include the Core m3, Core i5 and Core i7 variants have been discounted by several retailers.

Pixel Slate gets its best discount yet of $250 off ($549 and up) through August 18

When we reviewed the Celeron-powered Pixel Slate late last year, we found it to be a giant identity crisis that made it not so good as either a laptop or a tablet. Well, if you do appreciate whatever form factor Google was trying to go for there and are happy to play with better specs to avoid much of the sluggishness that was reported on the poor 'ol entry-level model, you can get a Slate for $250 off for a limited time.

[Update: More devices] Chrome OS 75 rolling out again, but just for the Pixel Slate

The seemingly delayed Chrome OS 75 update finally landed two weeks ago, but last week that rollout was suspended, potentially in the wake of issues like crashes/freezes and Android apps losing internet connectivity. Today Chrome Unboxed reports that the update is rolling out again, but only for the Pixel Slate. Google's Chrome OS update dashboard confirms the Pixel Slate is currently the only device set to receive Chrome OS 75 on Stable channel.
