I am conflicted between the X2 and the upcoming Pixel Slate. Anyone have opinions or links to comparisons? Appreciated.

I ended up picking one up while I was in Hawaii ($499 on sale) and am really loving it so far. I have the Surface Pro as well, and am really enjoying the rigid keyboard. Chrome OS has taken me no time at all to get used to.

Here's a couple of review of the Pixel Slate, and the first one is vs. the Chromebook x2.

Again, compared to my Surface Pro (which is last years model, and something I lusted after for years, I find myself turning to the x2, unless it's really something I need Windows for, which, hasn't been much, so far).
And especially when it was $499 US on sale.
Great keyboard, great screen, 2 x USB C ports, micro SD card (picked up a 256GB one on sale on Amazon.ca for $58!). And the rigid keyboard means I can use it anywhere, even on my lap.

Hope that helps!
