Google has retired its well-received Pixel C tablet in favor of $1,000 Pixelbook hybrid laptop, the company released earlier this year.

“As is common when a device has been out for a few years, we’re now retiring Pixel C and it is no longer available for sale,” the company said in a statement. “However, we are committed to updating and supporting it, including the recent update to Android 8.0, so customers can continue to get the best out of their device.”

The search giant has already pulled the Pixel C from its official store, redirecting product page visitors to the Pixelbook. first noted by Android Police. Though the the end of sale represents the end of life for the device, Google says that it plans to continue supporting the hardware moving forward.

The shift from the C to Pixelbook represents current tide of the industry in recent years, as many have moved from slates to convertibles. The Pixelbook isn’t as slim as a standalone tablet, and there are certain sacrifices when shifting between any form factors, but it’s a pretty solid tablet replacement for most instances. It’s also a much more well-rounded computing device.
