"Both of these computers are computers of the future. The MacBook is, as mentioned, a work of art. It is a fashion statement. The Chromebook, however, is a little more powerful and able to take on more. Both of these computers are great choices, though the MacBook is better as an all-purpose computer with the storage that it offers and the access to Apple's App Store. For those confident that they will be connected to the Internet at least most of the time and who don't need to do anything beyond what Google services can do or what can be done through web-based apps, the Chromebook is a great solution. The MacBook starts at $1,299, while the Chromebook Pixel starts at $999."

"Android tablets have gotten better over the recent times since the Nexus 7 and Android's Jellybean OS. There is no short of 'tablet' apps available in the Google Play Store, and Android is much easier to use than it was before while still letting users customise to their hearts' content.
Back when I reviewed and praised the Nexus 7 two years ago, it wasn't exactly the premium Android tablet I was looking for, but Dell has finally filled that gap with the Venue 8 7000.
More importantly, Dell's new tablet is finally giving Apple's iPad Mini a run for its money."

All right -- so which tablet is the right one for you? Putting it all together, I'd say this:
If you want a bigger display or a softer, warmer device, the Nexus 9 is probably the more sensible choice for your needs. And if having Lollipop right now is important to you -- and/or you value knowing that you'll always have the latest Android software straight from Google as soon as it's released -- by all means go the Nexus route.
(Side note: If pure Google software is your main concern, you might also consider the 2013 Nexus 7 as an alternative. Provided you're okay with a smaller tablet, it's going to give you a better overall experience at a fraction of the cost,especially now that you can frequently find it for under $200.)
Otherwise, I'd steer you toward Dell's Venue 8. It's generally the nicer tablet of the two, with a far more premium and high-end vibe that includes better build quality, a more impressive display, and more consistent performance. Throw in the exceptionally compact design, standout speakers, and option for expandable storage, and it's got the clear upper edge overall.

SAN FRANCISCO – The new MacBook wants to be the ultimate ultraportable, weighing just 2 pounds and sporting a very sharp 12-inch Retina Display. To get it so compact and so thin, Apple developed an all-new keyboard and touchpad – and ditched everything but a single port. Priced at $1,299, this is definitely a premium laptop, but there’s some trade-offs involved.
We went hands on with the new MacBook and came away impressed with the new design.
