Two people in my office mistook the Google Pixel tablet I lay on my desk for one of Apple's newest iPad professionals. At home, my 11-year-
The old son made the same mistake.
This is not necessarily a bad thing if you are Google, because the company may convince

Google says it's blue at midnight.
It looks black to me.
The bottom line is that while the hardware is very good, I don't sell it on the software.
As with the display on the Apple tablet, Pixel Slate supports the use of optional pens for those who like to paint.
Google uses AI to convert your handwritten graffiti into text.
Compare prices Google claims to have several advantages over its competitors, cheaper (
Not cheap though)
Compared to the latest iPad Pros, the price starts at $599, up $799.
Google's accessory $199 keyboard is better than Apple's optional $179 or $199 optional keyboard, mainly because it has a trackpad that Apple's keyboard lacks.
That said, it's not very good either, because although you can support the tablet from multiple angles, it's embarrassing to do so, and sometimes the whole thing fails if the surface is not flat enough.
The round backlit keys on Google's keyboard do take some time to adapt, but on top of that, the "travel" of the keys and feel good.
However, the fact is that as a person who lives on writing, whether we are talking about Mac, Chromebook or Windows PC, I bring a laptop keyboard every time.
This raises the question that any tablet buyer in this class should think seriously: Do you really want a tablet or is it better to use a laptop?
Compared with Apple, the price advantage of Pixel Slate is also a bit misleading, because Google's entry level is about half the capacity of a relatively weak Intel Saiyan processor, 4 gigabytes of RAM, and a modest 32 gb storage Apple's new iPad Pro starter configuration.
This configuration is completely sufficient for basic knowledge such as browsing, watching Netflix, and taking notes.
If you have more requirements, be prepared to give Apple or Google more loot to get more powerful specs and more generous storage space.
I tested the Google model on the 8 th.
The new generation of Intel's Core i5 processors, 8 gb of RAM and 128 GB of storage is priced at $999.
If you want a more powerful Intel Core i7 processor, 16 GB and 1,599 GB, the price of the pixel board will climb to $256.
This number does not include the keyboard most of you want and the $99 pen some of you want.
By contrast, Apple's biggest iPad Pro could cost more than $2,000, especially when you pile up on accessories.
Keep in mind that although the pixel slate can be used with 12. 3-
Apple buyers who want the latest iPad Pro can choose 11-or 12. 9-
Inch display model.
If you want to know, the pixel slate is a little higher and wider than the 12 th. 9-inch iPad Pro.
Of course, choosing software, the main purchase decision depends on your choice of the OS: Apple's iOS or Google's Chrome.
If you prefer Google, you have another decision to consider-choose a tablet like Pixel Slate or a normal Chromebook laptop.
Pixel Slate supports Google Play Store, which means you can download a variety of Android apps including Netflix.
But somehow iOS feels more natural here on the iPad than the Chrome/Android combo.
Yes, I heard the voices of Windows fans: Microsoft's Surface Pro is certainly an option in this area, as are many other Windows alternatives.
Like Chromebooks, Google regularly offers free secure Chrome OS updates, and Pixel Slate also includes a secure chip called Titan C, which Google will tell you has been tamperedresistant.
You can also summon a Google Assistant on Pixel Slate with a familiar "OK, Google" voice command or by pressing the dedicated key on the Slate keyboard.
Siri's ability to handle assistant chores on the iPad is generally poor.
There are cameras on both sides of the pixel slate-I didn't take a lot of photos and I probably didn't want to take them considering the overall size of the slate.
There's nothing I can brag about.
The advantages and pixel slate of the latest Apple iPad rely on USB
Compared to Apple's only one port, C-Google provides you with the benefits of two such ports.
Neither tablet is standard.
The size of the headphone jack is always a complaint now.
Power button and fingerprint sensor.
I did not do any formal battery tests.
Google claims to have up to 12 hours of juice on Pixel Slate, with a fast charging feature that lets you charge up to 2 hours in 15 minutes.
Like the new iPad professional, Pixel Slate is a great product for those who want a tablet.
But the emphasis here is on high-end products, because Google's tablets, like Apple's latest, are not cheap.
For many of you, a standard laptop or Chromebook will be a smarter choice.
