So I've gone through a lot of machines from Thinkpads to Apple.
This is the perfect machine if you need a thin client (i.e. SSH into a heavy duty PC machine).
It's slim and I can take it anywhere without issues in terms of weight and usability.
If you rely on the cloud for apps - and don't need a 5 pound laptop...this is almost perfect.
Only thing to critique - provide official Linux booting option (which Google is supposedly working on right now) and better battery life.
I actually traded in my Surfacebook ($3,000 US dollars) and got this instead - never looked back.
But I'll have to say...Surfacebook has better stylus support but that doesn't affect me too much.
Android apps are hard to use because of scaling issues, poor implementation of tablet sized layouts and pause states, and some pretty significant instability (even in Google's own apps). The scaling issues also extend to Chrome windows - layouts are less broken than in Android apps but if you aren't running at 2x (slightly too big) or 1x (way too small) you get some scaling artifacts that can be pretty distracting. Less screen bezel so you didn't need to scale down from 2x would be one fix for this. At the default scaling a lot of websites are designed for a display just a little wider than the Pixelbook screen.
Bluetooth is pretty buggy. It's like going back to the Bluetooth stack from Android 3 years ago, devices never connecting and disconnecting during use is common. Don' t get this if you rely on Bluetooth. This also affects the Smart Lock and tethering features, they are pretty unreliable. The only other way to login is your main Google account password, so if you use a generated password, it's pretty inconvenient to login if smart lock isn't working.
I gave the dev channel a try to see if it improved any of the Bluetooth issues and try out Linux apps. Bluetooth has the same issues in the latest builds. Linux apps work but many need GPU acceleration and this is still upcoming (this looks like it's actively being worked on).
Nice stuff about the hardware, the keyboard is great, it's a very well built machine, feels great to type on and use the trackpad. In tablet mode it's a bit awkward due to the weight and the keys on the back, but it is usable. If you want a laptop first and just occasional tablet use, I think it's pretty good. If you are looking for a tablet mainly, other devices will serve you better.
If you're reading this six months or a year from now, the software will likely have improved and then I'd really recommend it. But for now, it's very alpha/beta quality depending on your use case.
Key decision criteria for me were also being able to run Android apps from the Google Play Store and full Linux apps on Chrome OS through Google's Project Crostini.
It also drives my widescreen LG monitor perfectly, and every peripheral i've tried just works (headsets, Kinesis Keyboard, etc). The only bummer is I can't get imessage on my desktop any more.... but the stability of this machine makes it all worth it.
Google and Microsoft OSs are fat and slow.... too much cruft. this machine is a fast and simple.
