Google stops selling the entry-level Pixel Slate with the Celeron processor

In recent years, Google has put serious investment into its hardware business. They manufactured three series of Pixel smartphones as well as the Pixelbook and the Pixel Slate.

Chrome OS 75 includes big performance updates for the Pixel Slate in tablet mode

Google has partnered with a few companies to see if the premium Chrome OS market is viable or not. Chromebooks gained popularity for the most part due to their price compared to other laptops.

New Chrome OS flag will enable Google Assistant on all Chromebooks

Google Assistant started a couple of years ago on just Allo and Google Pixel phones. Slowly, it has been added to many more devices.
