    90% of the usage will be just internet stuff. Honestly dont need one bc my phone does basically all I need anyways but I've wanted a tablet for no good reason for a while. Leaning Slate right now.

    Slate new, Pixelbook old.

    I'd get a Slate if I were willing to spend money on a tablet.

    One of the 64 GB. Much difference in the Celeron and m3? I'm tech dumb.

    Thanks. Sounds like m3 is the play. The i5 is probably the tits but overkill for me.

    I think the pixelbook is perfect though, wouldn't trade it for a slate. I think the slate is going backwards really.

    I'm in the exact same situation. Have an aging laptop, and just kind of want the Slate but awaiting first impressions on it.

    Both of my parents got denied last year with 800+ credit scores. Idk how that happens.

    was fine, got me a huge discount on my pixel 2xl

    i should probably just go pay it off but 0% financing
     
  16. Score was too good. Probably knew they wouldn't end up paying any late fees and all that jazz.

    Same. I tried last year and got denied somehow
     
  18. Do you find out before you finalize the order if you will get it or not?

    Yeah
     
  20. Here's to hoping they do financing for their Black Friday deal and they don't deny me then. I can't pay it all off right now. I mean I could but I'm not dipping into my savings for it.

    Think they sent me a letter. You can't go any further with the transaction until you get approved to finance. I ended up just doing it through Verizon
     
  22. Sounds like Black Friday won't be a good day to try to get it on financing then.

    Yep was painless. Did the application thing online and had approval within 10 minutes and purchased the phone, a case, pixel buds and two pixel stands 10 minutes later .

    Easy and painless for me.

  32. Ordered a Pixel 3 with the financing for the $150 off deal today
    :blessed:
     
  33. Will be glad to be off that Samsung BS next week, aside from the work phone which barely gets used since Verizon data speeds suck dick at my house.

    I didn't even try it.

    Now I need a case, some ear buds or some adapter that charges and allows ear bud connection.

    In regards to cases the Google cases are actually really nice. I have the fog and obsidian ones and they fit and feel great.
     
  41. For some reason the two phones numbers they had listed for when I had to do the text verification weren't mine so I had to call a 1-800 number to finish my application but they notified me right on the phone that I was approved.
     
  42. I just ordered the Spigen Neo Hybrid off Amazon

    I've got a strange issue; I've got 2 Google accounts (1 for work and 1 personal), and I can't switch accounts in the Drive app. It works ok on a Samsung but not on my Pixel 3 XL.

    That project fi deal today is pretty good. $200 off of a Pixel 3 and a $200 bill credit
     
  48. Went to bed last night around midnight with my S8 at around 50% charge. Forgot to put it on charge. Woke up shortly after 9 am with it dead, and that was with battery saver mode turned on. Put it on charge and it looked like it had been dead for a couple hours. Fuck this phone.

    Anyone know why the dark mode setting doesn't work on 9.0 on the pixel 2? The option is there. Do I need to be in the beta program or something?
