    If these were $200 cheaper, I'd seriously consider picking one up.

    I am seriously thinking about just moving completely to google's chrome / android platform in the next year or so. Hard to leave what I am using now, since it's working really good. Just something about the new stuff from google is appealing!

    Let others be guinea pigs. After GP is done, buy it. Spend your cash wisely!

    Exactly what I am doing. Even though the pixelbook is SOLID! So is the pixel phone lineup too (besides the notch).
