Chrome OS need a keyboard. Touch control not optimized yet.

Yes agreed...Chrome OS will work better with a precision touchpad and a physical keyboard to boot. Touch is not as elegant and refine in my past experience. I am also waiting for a good 3:2 aspect ration display and a good touchpad and backlit keyboard and more importantly....the cost must be reasonable like say <$500. Anything more, it is harder to justify...Pixelbook is a very well built machine but what you are paying for is actually the hardware which is very much under-utilized...you don't need an Intel Kaby Lake 7th Gen CPU to make the Chrome OS run faster...any dual-core Intel chip will have more than enough juice to make it a zippy experience.

Paying $1000 or higher for Chromebook is when you have too much money to burn...

This glorified Chromebook is still too expensive despite a price cut of $250.  $500 will be awesome and a definite buy for me. ;D

I have no doubt that Snapdragon chipset will work superbly fine on Chromebooks running Chrome OS but for Windows 10, it is a different story altogether. Even the most basic Windows 10 S may not run as smooth if open more apps or even tabs in a chrome browser.
