As the first detachable Chromebook, I thought the HP Chromebook X2 was a great device at its $599 debut price. Today at $399, it’s a stellar choice for most people at this cost.
At $599, the HP Chromebook X2 surprised me last year as a great productivity device for all but the heaviest power users who need more performance and memory. Today you can nab this detachable for $399 if you’re a my Best Buy member.
Benchmark tests showing a device with internal similarities to the Pixel Slate surfaced this week. It looks like another Chrome tablet option but this time coming from Asus based on Chromium code approvals.
With a wide range of Chromebooks now available for every budget and performance preference, you can find a deal on just about any type of Chromebook. Here’s a list of some of the Black Friday Chromebook deals.
While you could drop $799 on a Google Pixel Slate, it may make more sense to nab the HP Chromebook X2 on sale for $499 with the included keyboard and pen.
The detachable Chromebook known internally as Cheza and powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 should have Linux app support through Project Crostini based on a new code commit.
Yup, the November 22 release date for the Google Pixel Slate is correct. Best Buy will have the device that day and you can now order directly from Google. Not sure which to buy? I got you covered.
In case you doubted that the Snapdragon 845-powered Chrome OS device code-named Cheza would be a detachable tablet, a code commit today confirms it. Expect a 12.3-inch Chrome slate with a second battery in the keyboard.
Thinking about buying a Pixel Slate? These two key factors should be driving the purchase decision process because you’re paying a premium for portability and performance.
Here I thought only the Pixel Slate had a 293 PPI display on a Chrome tablet. HP has one too with a Chromebook X2 variant although it’s unclear if and where the device is currently available.
Google hasn’t provided an official release date for the Pixel Slate but earlier today Best Buy was showing availability on November 22. That gives Google time for final software tweaks to Chrome OS.
