If you're planning on buying a hybrid laptop for your work and entertainment needs, then the Google Pixel C is among the best ones out there. Developed by Google itself rather than by third party OEMs, Pixel C launched along with Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P phones and succeeded the Nexus line of tablets which weren't very popular. The device is still available on the Google Store and if you buy it between now and 7 January, you will need to pay a £100 less than usual. If you buy the magnetic keyboard which is sold as an accessory, you will save another £50 on the deal.
Google's Pixel C features a 10.2 inch screen a resolution of 308ppi and brightness of 500 nits. Google has gotten rid of about 5 under-used buttons on the keyboard, thus limiting the thickness to just 18.8mm. An Nvidia Quad-core processor powers the hybrid device and it has stereo speakers on both sides. Voice input in the device has gotten more intuitive with 4 microphones on the base and you just need to double tap on the light buttons to check battery status with software updates every 6 weeks.
Pixel C initially shipped with Android 6.0 Marshmallow on board and comes with an all-metal and premium looking design. The tablet is quite robust and is very sturdy to use and hold. The Bluetooth-powered keyboard can be attached to the back of the tablet if you want it to rest upright and the tablet inductively charges the keyboard when it is closed, thus prolonging it's usability.
