What branch op?
Should put that its ‘used’ in the title.
I read that Google are merging their Chromebook OS with Android OS.

I'm not entirely sure what this means, and if it will happen.

I have had a 'play' with a Chromebook and was quite impressed, but they do have drawbacks if you are relient on Windows and or macOS programs.

@Stevendubs Hi, was this in Cardiff store?
Chromebooks are absolutely useless, would avoid at all costs. Is this a chromebook? Seems way too expensive

They're really not, typing using one now and use it every day, and have done so for the last 4 years. However, I paid £140 for mine, and as much as I love the hardware, would unlikely pay anything near to a grand for one!

I got one for portability and basic work use while traveling abroad, but unfortunately I found out it's an absolute nightmare to use as soon as you lose internet connection. Managing files is also a nightmare. Really wish I'd just bought a cheap notebook instead as it was a good £350 for the higher spec model.

I'm sure they're fine for some people, but I just found them way too limited. Especially for nearly a grand as you say!
Chromebooks are excellent, Google build quality is good, but that's a hell of a lot of money when you can get a slightly less top end one for half the money. Or an equally fast windows laptop. Not voting eitehr way on this.

Tend to be small, light laptops with excellent battery life that run very quickly. You're limited to a Chrome browser, but can use Google Docs offline, as well as Android apps (Including very good versions of MS Office programs) on some models.

For many users who spend 99% of their time in a browser they're perfect as they're very secure and perform far better than an equivalently priced Windows machine. I have a cheap Lenovo one that I use when travelling.

That's a chromebook, yes. Is this pixel book a chromebook though? £900 seems far too expensive for one. I mean you can get a modest gaming laptop for this sort of money.

Yet you were happy to wade in by stating all chromebook were worthless, on a thread that was about a chromebook, BUT you didn't even know if it was. You managed to make a sweeping statement condemning an entire genre of computing without even knowing if your comment was relevant. Sorry if I come across as snarky but you could always have a quick Google before you comment.
Chromebooks are excellent, cheap, fast, quick updates. Just upgraded from a cheap Acer to a Asus C301. I do 99% of my work in cloud apps, so it's perfect for that, this model also runs Android apps.

Yep. Google just calls their hardware Pixel at the moment (see pixel phones etc).

On the other hand, it's basically the same spec and price as a Surface Laptop, and can run Linux if you want a full OS.

Its a premium computer designed as a 'halo' product, and probably exists for the benefit of Google employees as much as anyone else.

True, I had assumed that given it had the same name as their phone series, and in the absence of knowledge about any new innovations in their notebooks ranges that it was a chromebook, but did not infact know for certain. The main thing making me unsure was the price, which in my opinion is ridiculous for such a limited system, regardless of how much they have improved the hardware. Turns out it is a chromebook and I'm unsure what niche this is trying to fill...
I'd rather have an enema from Basil Brush than buy this.
