My bad. Still an insanely bad value for what it is, and its utility. As for the $1800 for 1TB online storage, in all seriousness, there may be a tiny percentage of people in certain use case scenarios who will actually use this storage, but for most people, it just doesn't make any sense and is not worth any $. These days free services provide more than enough cloud storage for most people, and I don't see many situations where uploading a TB to the cloud is feasible or desirable, especially for consumer use. And that will not change anytime soon. The fact that it eventually expires makes it even more ridiculous, especially with that amount of data, and at that time you have no option except somehow downloading it all and transferring it to another service, or pay a ludicrous fee to keep it there.
At the end of the day, the Pixel is an incredibly ill conceived hardware product, as Google often releases. The ONLY advantage of buying a chrome based laptop was the low price. Thats it.
