Google just announced a $250 discount on Pixelbooks until 6/17.

Best Buy has them at that price along with Google Store, Walmart, B&H and others.

Best Buy currently has a 10% coupon for Pixelbooks on their Student Deals page:

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/clp/...6200050000

I believe anyone can sign up for these coupons - no verification of student status is done.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

It never shocks me how many people who will never try a modern Chromebook seriously come on every Chromebook thread and says that Chromebooks should basically be free. If you NEED windows, then get a Windows machine, if you don't, Chrome OS is a pretty amazing lightweight Linux platform with official support and updates with access to almost the entire Play Store. The same reason people buy an XPS or a MacBook is the same reason people buy a Chromebook Pixel. High quality materials and performance with an operating system they enjoy.

I use OSX, Windows and Linux every day for work, but besides playing games on my rig, I'd pick up my Chromebook over any of those for home use 9/10 times.

Btw... If you are not familiar with Chrome OS.. this is the most expensive model available. and get more expensive with available hardware upgrades. It seems Google created this model as a flagship for the OS. There are other models, (like Asus 302, or Samsung Pro) which do what this model does for less $$. Here you are paying extra for look / feel and the Chrome OS model which will always be on the edge of new funtionality.

This is a good price...but still for a small target audience.

Do you really think the only reason people buy ChromeOS devices is because they're cheap? I have a $1,000 Asus Windows ultrabook. Yes, it's more "flexible" than a ChromeOS device, but it also almost never gets used. I'm typing this on my Asus C302 and it does almost everything I do better than the Windows machine.

Is it the solution for everybody? No, the right tool for the right job. But stop acting like what works best for you must be better for everybody.

I still have the mentality that any chrome book over $99 is overpriced. Google kinda did that too themselves.
That was true ... Not anymore. And this specific model is a great example.

My family is using a Chromebase (think all in one PC, monitor) as a kitchen PC. 24inch Touch screen. Amazing. Is it perfect ? No, can't play DVDs. It is easy work with, and has alot of functions (no DVD, instead play stuff from Amazon, Google Play, etc and cast to our TV)

And the one I'm using doesn't have Android apps yet.

(edit. originally wroote 27 inch... it's a 24. )

Flexible how? It's preference. What do run that doesn't execute in a browser? I dropped windows years ago and never looked back. For a lot of us the appeal of a chrome book or MacBook is that it doesn't run windows.
