After yesterday's awful display of the $ 599 Celeron version of Pixel Slate, I went out to my podcast co-host, Matthew Miller, because he's the only one I know with both a Core m3 and Core i5 slate. We both agree that the Celeron 4GB memory base requires some work on the Google site. It is undeniable. The good news is that the Chromium team submitted an error report to deal with the animation delay and inertia.
I still think the $ 599 Celeron option should not be the torch carrier for the Pixel Slate lineup, nor should it be compared to a more expensive iPad Pro. As it stands now, many people have seen the teams from MKBHD's video and have printed the entire product line. It's not my opinion, it's reading through hundreds of comments on the video.
Either way, many people wonder if the Core i5 is worth the price of $ 200 from the cheaper Core m3 Pixel Slate. It is a good question to ask after the HP Chromebook X2 has a Core m3 and in my short time to own one, I found it to run pretty well. I just returned because it wouldn't be limited by 32 GB of local storage, as I used my Chrome devices for Android and Linux apps as well as Chrome OS.
If you are in this boat to discuss $ 799 and $ 999 Pixel Slate, Matt's short video can help you decide. I will give you a fair warning though: Matt does not tell which unit is in the end. See if you can really guess between using Core m3 and Core i5 Pixel Slate.
