The writing has been on the wall for months, so it should not be a shock for anybody that the Celeron Pixel Slates, the decrease-finish $599 and $699 fashions that have been very briefly out there and did not impress a lot, at the moment are utterly gone from the Google Retailer. All mentions of each variants have been wiped off, as in the event that they by no means existed within the first place.
Till lately, the Celeron fashions have been marked as “out of inventory” however they nonetheless confirmed up once you clicked to select a Slate mannequin to buy. You solely get the Intel Core m3, i5, and i7 variants now, whether or not you are within the US, UK, or Canada. Even the specs web page solely mentions these eighth Gen Intel processors, skipping the Celeron fashions altogether.
We reached out to Google for remark and acquired this assertion:
We now have stopped manufacturing on the G Retailer unique $599 and $699 Pixel Slate fashions. We stay dedicated to supporting these variants and can proceed to inventory Pixel Slate on-line and in shops – together with our current enlargement to much more Greatest Purchase places.
Fret not although, that is all for the perfect actually. Those that tried the Celeron model weren’t impressed, and all three different fashions are presently discounted by $200, successfully making the Core m3 the identical $599 worth as what the Celeron was imagined to value.
RIP Celeron Slate, we hardly knew ye.
