You need to read the whole article to know all about Google’s newest base-level Pixel Slate m3 price and specs : Is it worth purchasing?
Soon, we’ll be updating our original evaluation of the Pixel Slate to reflect the product’s evolution in the months following its release. The new entry-level Core m3 model is the least expensive choice, thus it’s important to discuss its performance.
The performance of the Pixel Slate m3 confirmed what I already knew: the Lenovo C630 is the only “workhorse” of a Chrome OS tablet. The Pixel Slate m3, although housing a powerful chipset, delivers performance that is, at best, average.
I spent most of my time with this laptop in its capacity as a desktop replacement, complete with a second monitor for maximum productivity. On a daily basis, I would have at least a dozen tabs open, have Spotify playing in the background, and occasionally use an Android app.
Generally speaking, this is not a problem for the machine. Although I rarely had to reload tabs, I frequently returned to a momentary white screen. Spotify would randomly pause as sites reloaded, which was really annoying. Is the Pixel Slate m3’s 8GB of memory to blame? Probably not, in my opinion. On the PIxelbook, which also has 8GB, I am able to complete the same tasks without any issues. It’s likely a result of the m3 chipset being the bottleneck.
However, the Pixel Slate m3 shines when used for less demanding workloads. Even with a handful of tabs open and no external display connected, the system is performing admirably as I type this.
I also used it as a tablet for a while and found that it performed admirably in that capacity. Web browsing and Android apps worked without a hitch on the machine, though I’m still not a fan of Chrome OS without a keyboard and mouse. Frames occasionally failed to render and a slight delay persisted when switching between applications.

Is it worth to purchase?
I believe buyers of the Pixel Slate m3 are receiving a functional device. It does its job adequately in most cases, but anything beyond a simple process would require a more feature-rich device.
When considering the Pixel Slate’s price tag, I find it hard to recommend it. Although the 600 euro price tag seemed attractive, I would much more swiftly recommend a Pixelbook or Lenovo C630 to someone in need of a professional laptop at $800, nearly $1000 with any keyboard added on. It’s difficult to recommend this to anyone who require a tablet over the iPad, especially in light of the improvements in the upcoming “iPadOS.”
Although the Pixel Slate will never be loved by everyone, it is excellent for the right buyer. Who is the lucky end-user in this case? For me, this characterises someone who frequently changes jobs. They require a portable device that can be used when docked to a desktop computer and while users are moving about the workplace. The Pixel Slate is, without a doubt, the best tablet option for that type of customer.
