Primary concern given Google is known to kill updates at will and the Slate experience (ChromeOS as a whole really) is still quite buggy given the performance you expect to get with the internals, still fine for budget machines though.sprung wrote: ↑Aug 27th, 2019 9:36 pmGoogle out of the tablet business

FWIW, I switched from macOS to ChromeOS about 6 months ago and not looking back. Almost instant boot ups, background updates, compatibility with Android and Linux apps -- for a lot of people it is a better OS (by far) than Windows and macOS. You do get what you pay for tho, I wouldn't recommend a ChromeOS device with less than 8Gb of RAM and CPU model lower than i3/i5 for the best experience.

Do you use any apps? I've read bad reviews of apps not working properly, but I figured there's been updates since those reviews, so I'm hoping it's better now. I have a Samsung tablet that I use daily, but it's getting old and slow (even after deleting and cleaning up stuff) and I've always liked the slate.sridca wrote: ↑Aug 29th, 2019 8:46 amI have the i7 Slate which I use every day when working from coffee shops. I use it more like a computer than a tablet, though occasionally reading PDFs in portrait mode does happen.
Google did fix the performance lag in recent updates, so if you are deciding against the Slate - that should not be the reason.

Apps work fine. So does Linux (crostini). I use the Google Play Books app.Snoopygis wrote: ↑Aug 29th, 2019 10:51 amDo you use any apps?

This. I never understood the market for the Slate.
