It is inline with high end, 2 in 1 tablets as far as price goes. The build quality and hardware are all high end, so that wasn't a consideration for me. My options were the iPad Pro (which is a no go, as I have an iPad Air 2 and it is way to limited for my needs), the Surface Pro 4 and the Pixel C.Android seems less useful in some ways on a tablet than even ios, and I find iOS useless outside of consumption,, it's probably a wash depending on a consumers needs. At least you can hook up a mouse to Android, I'm assuming in this case. Keyboard seems really awkward to put on and take off, at least in the videos I've seen.
Seems super overpriced as well. Definitely a no for me without even having to think about it.
It's a beautiful device but the price, having vanilla Android, and lack of an integrated trackpad makes it a no-go. If I find myself in the market for an advanced Android tablet it will be the Jide Remix.I've already set aside the funds to get this. Anyone else looking to buy one?
Interesting device but being released this late it should have ARM A72 cores. Also, it has competition from what I think is the better Galaxy Tab S2 with SAMOLED display with better keyboard with trackpad and SD card slot. Price range is also close to Surface Pro 3. Personally, I feel optimal screen sizes are 5.7" for pocketability, 8" for single-handed use and 13-14" for two-handed use. I'll probably go with the Surface Pro 4 M3-6Y30 (only hesitation is no 8GB DRAM option) or something similar like Samsung's rumored SAMOLED version to complement Note 5 and Galaxy Tab S2 8".

What was a consideration was using Google docs, Google apps, game graphics with great game titles, ability to download and email any type of file I want, access to the file directory and a very high end display with a high end CPU/GPU.
I found my iPad Air 2 too limiting and requiring too many workarounds, just to do some very simple things.
The Surface Pro doesn't have access to all of my Google Apps, but meets the criteria everywhere else. It would cost more though. (And yes, you can use a BT mouse with any Android device)
One problem is. I'm not looking to drop nearly $1000 on a tablet/laptop. That is Surface Pro territory. If I wanted a full laptop experience though, that would be my choice.How you find the iPad too limiting is how I see Android as well. Every since windows tablets came out I never felt the need to go back to being limited, and overpriced IMO based on such limited functionality.
I don't mean to belittle your choice at all, but it seemed you were looking for opinions on whether the Pixel C was worth buying. IMO it's not worth the money at all seeing what else is out there in terms of functionality. Personally I would never settle for Google apps when I could have Office 2016 (and have Google apps also). I'd never limit myself to phone games when I could have full PC games like GTA V. Etc etc.
I'm also not impressed with the keyboard at all, seems like a pain to put on and take off, and in some reviews it looked like it came off easily just moving the tablet around. I love my surface pro, when I'm done I simply flip the keyboard closed, or flip it backwards when I want it out of the way.

Word docs and google docs are interchangeable. Office isn't a concern for me. But my games are. I'm not into console games or XBox exclusives. I like my modern combat, unkilled, dead trigger, asphalt 8 games. Just a personal pref.
Also love the light bar feature. Pretty cool little feature.
That merger rumor was put to rest. It isn't happening anytime soon. But when it does, Android will be the OS that wins out.
Not really. The merger will happen. No one has disputed the merge. Google sources would HAVE to say they are committed to ChromeOS in order to still sell any.That merger rumor was put to rest. It isn't happening anytime soon. But when it does, Android will be the OS that wins out.
