    Well googles seem doing bad job at its marketing nd production of devices by making them expensive for no reason maybe xiomi or other budget companies will do better at it for a reasonable price.

    Why is it so choppy and laggy? I saw lots of frame drops and lags during this small video. Disappointing.

    Did I just hear $200 for the keyboard? I guess Google is making too much money that they just had to develop something to trash some of that money

    Like the Ipad it's way over priced and has no expandable storage and no headphone jack, STUPID! It's Google Chrome so it has limited App support. It's like a PC that can only surf the Internet that only has one choice of Browser.

    At 2:44 I could almost hear the LWDN background music kick in as Robert walked into frame.

    Celeron in 2018? What is going on with their hardware division? This entire event was an embarrassment.

    Not really impressed. $200 for the keyboard? $100 for the pen?

    So all in, you're spending ~ $900 for the base model. For that kind of money, why not just get a notebook?

    So this is a copy of the Samsung Galaxy Book, just without the keyboard and pen included in the box, and not being a true PC. Urgh!

    that celeron version is laggy. I think on the entry price, iPad will still be the champ for the performance. Better take the high end version if you want to buy this.

    Wow! Look at all of that jittering and stuttering in this video! Was that the Celeron version or the i7? That was awful! I'm an Android fan, but I'm actually planning to buy an iPad Pro later this year. I don't want a Windows machine because I'm mainly interested in using touch-centric apps, and Apple's app ecosystem is the best by far. However, I do like the addition of being able to use Chrome OS as well as Android apps. Nevertheless, the experience of using Android apps on any Chrome OS device is clearly not as smooth as using an iPad. (Not to mention the fact that I doubt that this device has a 120 mhz refresh rate either.) As an Android guy, I hate to say it, but if you want touch-centric apps in a larger form factor, then the iPad Pro is still clearly the best choice. Sorry, Google. Keep trying!

    Chromebooks are comparable to Windows laptops. This is comparable Surface Pro. If you want a Chromebook get one. This is offering something.

    And people thought the iPad Pro was bad enough… The only highlight was the new Home. Everything else was a letdown

    This is really embarrassing. $200 for the keyboard, baseline celeron processor and another $100 for the pen. The Microsoft surface might cost more but it’s keyboard is cheaper and still runs windows 10 as well as full desktop applications. Chrome OS may have better stability with antivirus updates through google but a well protected antivirus on a PC will still blow this out of the water. At this point you’re better off buying the 6th gen iPad and a third party keyboard which will probably do most of what this does for a fraction of the price. I just don’t get it.
