    I've found that my Pixel C is a great travel device. It's compact and light, but the screen is still big enough to work comfortably on (and the screen itself is bright with beautiful colors, which certainly helps). The keyboard is quite good for its size -- the main issue I have is with the tiny apostrophe/quote key, but otherwise, I find that I can type pretty fast on it. Browsing on Chrome (specifically, these forums) is almost as fast as on my Chromebook or PC.

    It's nice to be able to use the same charger for this tablet and my Pixel 2 XL. If I brought my Pixelbook, I'd need its own charger if I wanted it to charge with any kind of speed.

    Playing games on the Pixel C is still a better experience than on the Pixelbook. Some games tend to have an odd touchscreen lag on the Pixelbook, and others have unusually sluggish performance on such powerful hardware.

    How about you -- anyone else bringing theirs around the world?

    P.S., gotta give a shoutout to @Itsa_Me_Mario for selling it to me at a nice discount.

    I loved the hell out of the Pixel C, but moved on to a pair of Pixelbooks.

    Using mine every day, it's my main Android device. No problems with it - great device.
    I love it although I'll probably go PixelBook next time.

    Still using mine from time to time but you'd notice it sluggish these days compared to a modern phone or something. Contemplating whether to replace it with a Pixelbook or just rely on my Windows 10 machine, though it's a little bulky.

    Still using my 3 year old C and enjoying it. Best tablet I've had and still performing well. Battery is just starting to show some age but still shows 97% health in accubattery. No plans to move on from it.

    Love mine! It's a bomber device (with aluminum, magnetic keyboard)! I use it to watch YouTube during breakfast, read comics, and play endless hours of Hearthstone. Still operates flawlessly! Until it starts slowing down, I'm sticking with it! Pixel Slate seems like the obvious replacement today.

    One minor bummer I recently discovered -- make sure you always wipe off any dust or debris on the magnetic bar of the keyboard before using it as a cover. There were a few specks of dirt on mine, and I realized later that it scratched the screen slightly.

    Yes, still using mine, although it has become so sluggish, I only use it for reading books. I've given up using it as a travel device -- it's pretty much unusable for any other kind of work.

    I'm now shopping for a new IPAD and wish I'd bought an IPAD instead of the Pixel C. It seems that Google was experimenting with this device, trying to provide an Android tablet that would seamlessly run any Android phone apps, with varying degrees of success. It was a 'high dollar' tablet and they kept selling them at full price, right up to the day they were quietly delisted.

    I'm afraid this has put me off on Google hardware generally -- I can't imagine ever buying any Google device again in my life...

    Hmm, that's too bad. I haven't encountered much in terms of sluggishness -- did you already try wiping the cache? https://www.hardreset.info/devices/g...recovery-mode/

    The device was clearly experimental in many ways. I recall that there were tons of speculation that it was intended to be either an early attempt at a combined Chrome/Android device, or possibly a Fuschia device, but they ran out of time (or effort) and just released it as an Android device.

    Thanks for your post, B. Diddy. Yes, tried that and it doesn't make any difference. Maybe I'll try an entire factory reset when I have an hour to kill. :-(
