Google's first Chrome OS browser is nearing the release, with Best Buy and Google's own online store starting to accept pre-orders on November 6th.
Pixel slate was first announced in early October, with a release date later this year. According to Best Buy, it is expected to pre-order 22 November.
Google's online store states a shipping estimation of two to three weeks when I review the ordering process.
Pixel Slate is the first Chrome OS tablet from Google after the company has left Android-based tablets. Pixel Slate runs an updated version of Chrome OS, something reminiscent of Android, albeit with access to the desktop version of Chrome, all security features in Chrome OS, and the ability to install Linux and Android apps.
Pixel Slate Keyboard and Pixel Pennel are sold separately, priced at $ 1
Pixel Slate starts at $ 599 and is available in several configurations. The baseline model includes an Intel Celeron processor, 4GB of memory and 32GB of storage. Pixel Slate tops $ 1,599 for a tablet with Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM and a 256GB SSD.

The launch of Pixel Slate comes on Apple's heels and announces and launches a pair of renewed iPad Pro tablets. Both have Face ID, trimmed down frames, and have dragged the Lightning port to USB-C.
You can pre-order Pixel Slate and accessories from Google or Best Buy.
