Google has discounted its Pixel Slate in the past, but not this much: Between $300 and $700, including pen and keyboard. Could this be the end of Pixel Slate inventory and should you buy one? My thoughts.
I don’t think you’ll see a better deal any time soon on the Pixel Slate bundle deals that went live today. All models are $350 off and include both a Slate keyboard and Pixelbook Pen.
The Pixelbook Go is an outstanding device, but the Pixel Slate is no slouch either, having nearly the same hardware internals. At $529.99, you can snag the Core m3 Slate and add a discounted keyboard for less than the Go.
Until September 5, you can save $250 on any Pixel Slate and get a free keyboard, worth up to $199. Sure, there won’t be a Slate successor, but it will still get new features and software updates through June 2024, making this a great deal.
Google is following up last month’s Pixel Slate deal with a new one: Buy a keyboard for the Chrome OS tablet and you’ll get $250 off a Pixel Slate through August 18.
If the Pixel Slate meets your needs, this week is a great time to buy one. Google is selling all models of the Chrome OS tablet for $100 off and including your choice of either Google or Brydge keyboard.
Although designed for the Acer Chromebook Tab 10, Belkin’s USB-C desktop keyboard with stand works well with the Pixel Slate and costs $50. There are some limitations but it’s worth the look if you want to type away on a desk or other flat surface.
So you’ve decided to buy a Pixel Slate once it becomes available. Ok, but which of the five configurations should you get? Here’s a guide to help you through the process, regardless of your budget.
