Unfortunately, it didn't work- according to the Chrome site: "Chromecast works with the Chromebook Pixel on Chrome version 28 and higher (support for other Chromebooks is coming soon)." I've only got the cheap $249 version.

I didn't' realize until I plugged my new Chromecast into my Samsung Chromebook that it wasn't supported- disappointment.

not sure if the UbiSlate has HDMI out (how could it at that price) but here is an idea about how to use a surplus tablet.

If you have an old Android tablet lying around, consider repurposing it as a Chromecast receiver
