For anyone who has been following Google's hardware, this report probably doesn't come as a surprise, because despite releasing ambitious devices like the Pixelbook and Pixel C, there's always been a major issue or two holding those gadgets back from mainstream appeal. One source claims that the Create team had a "bunch of stuff in the works", and that the movement of employees away from the project is indicative of the company "par [ing] down the portfolio" of products. As a result, the company has removed dozens of employees from its "Create" team - the hardware division responsible for developing Google's tablets and laptops - and moved them to other positions within Google or parent Alphabet. Hardware Engineers, Technical Program Managers and related supporting staff have been given notice of these "roadmap cutbacks".
An internal source close to Business Insidertold that Google is now going through "roadmap cutbacks" and hence the decision. Given the competition within the laptop market, this isn't too surprising.

The Pixel Slate was a weird Chrome OS tablet with a detachable keyboard, made as a competitor to the Microsoft Surface and Apple iPad Pro. Still, the Pixelbook, with its aluminum chassis and high-end screen, was seen as a model for what a premium, Mac-like Chromebook could look like. The longtime tech reviewer Walt Mossberg said that the Pixel C represents "an object lesson in what Google shouldn't do if it pursues home-grown integration of hardware and software".
