Google has made adjustments to its desktop operating system so that it works better by touch-only, with applications in the center of the screen, artificial intelligence recommendations next to the search button, browser chromium In a desktop configuration with support for its various extensions and an updated dual screen for multi-tasking - all based on a 12.3-inch touch screen and a 3,000 × 2,000 pixel resolution with a protective cover of the type Gorilla Glass 5.
Beneath the blue envelope, we find Amber Lake chips of ultra-modern ultra-low-cost ultraviolet core Intel, Which are cooled by passive and completely silent means, dynamic memory between 4GB and 16GB, drive-based internal storage SSD Between 32GB and 256GB, connectivity Wi-Fi 802.11ac Dual Channel, Connectivity Bluetooth 4.2 and a 10-hour 48 battery that should provide 10 hours of work.

A starting price of $ 600 for the Pixel Slate may sound quite competitive when compared to other large tablets on the market based on a Windows system - but it is worth noting that this price gives access to the array with a basic Celeron 3965Y chip, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage Only, without the stylus and without the dedicated touch pen which are sold separately at $ 200 and $ 100 respectively. The price also swells quickly for those who want more dynamic memory, more processing power and more storage - and so for $ 1,000 for a version with 8GB of dynamic memory, Core i5-8200Y chip and drive SSD 128GB 's obtained a great similarity between the proposition of Google To that of Microsoft Office and the-Surface Pro.
Can Google make consumers prefer Chrome OS over Windows 10 on their tablet when not involved here price pays more? We'll probably soon find out.
