Its almost like you didn't read where I said "supported by warranty" or any of the lower 2/3rd of my comment. Reading is recommended before replying.
No one has mentioned it, but this is a dead-end product. There will be no new version. Its abandoned. Supported by warranty, but abandoned as a product line.

THAT SAID, I bought one ~4 months ago when it was on SD. We LOVE it. Its one of the few tech purchases where you will be surprised by the value of the deal. Highly recommended.

I prefer this deal over the one I actually bought. I got the i5/8GB version with free pen and keyboard. Honestly, i could do without the pen. The keyboard is nice to have, but nothing that can't be replaced easily with the closest cheap bluetooth keyboard. I've never felt it was underpowered, but who doesn't prefer a higher end chip and twice the ram. I paid $599, for reference.

EDIT --- I'm buying one. My second.
I bought an m3 open box from best buy for $249 and loved the screen but I admit I wanted more of a tablet experience and was disappointed in getting around by touch. If I wanted a dedicated Chromebook with using it as a tablet less than 5% of the time, I can recommend this

Had the M3 and it didn't support x265/hevc, not sure if the i7 is the same (might be a Google royalties thing)

Just install the Chrome version of VideoLan Client. Done.

Sadly, it seems like the slate is always emmc, though there are a few Chrome flags that can be used to improve performance.

Only the pixelbook has SSD In the i7 model

Got one with the keyboard case when Google had them on sale a few months ago. You called it, it's a great lightweight Chromebook that she can toss in her purse. Other than sharing a picture or video, I can't remember ever seeing it not attached to the keyboard. You don't always need a full laptop and if you are into the Google/Pixels this pairs with phone flawlessly.

I had one for a short amount of time and it was very good.

The one issue I had was if I used it on low screen brightness there was a noticable flickering. I ended up returning it because I wasn't sure if it was a hardware or software bug.

I think if this also ran Android apps I'd be all over it.

It does run android apps, though my m3 version, some apps like call of duty would crash but remember it's chrome os first and tablet later
