Surface Go has a ton of potential. I wish the keyboard wasn't so expensive but it really is a tiny and super portable Surface computer. Thanks for watching!

Hi, I enjoyed watching your videos. I’m a student, just wondering what will you recommend for a student with a tight Budget. The Low tier surface go $400? Mid tier surface go $550? Or the Surface pro which around $900?

Perhaps it is because the bezel is thick so that it will not touch the screen when carrying around with outdoor work? I think that Surface Go which had various functions with that smallness exceeded the Mac.

How does it handle Chrome? As a student, I normally have at least 10 tabs open when doing research. I know Edge is more optimised, but I don't really want to switch browser at the moment.

Hi, this is Thomaz. I bought the 8RAM and 128SSD version and the red Alcantara keyboard for use at work. I´m a doctor and use to work in 2 or 3 clinics every day. For my use - Word, Excel, Email, PDF, Internet Banking, show some pictures.....IT´S ALL THAT I NEED in a very-very portable device. Battery life is about 7-8 hours and charges very fast even with my cell phone charger. It performs almost like my main device (Acer Aspire F15 - i5 - 8RAM notebook). Typing is excellent. Screen is MUCH better than my main device. Sound is great considering the size of the device. And is very ellegant on every table that you place it, calling for others eyes - everybody wants to take a peek.... As a travel device - excellent. I recomend it !

I'm having trouble deciding which one to go for - I've sold all desktops and laptops and kept a mac-mini - will buy 2 tablets ( surface + ipad ) - surface tablet will double as second monitor when home watching videos but most of its use is to edit small GoPro videos of the weekends away mtb'ing - if anyone has any experience making short videos with GoPro app, would this tablet be enough, or I should save for the Pro ? ( all I'm concerned about is portability, sdcard reader and gopro-app working )

+Fedir Kriviy thanks - decided to save a couple more weeks for the i7 - it's no major video edits ( short 1min clips then dump the footage ) - i just didn't want it to lag like crazy and make the whole experience crap since this will be the main driver and travel companion

PRO is capable of doing montaging some video footage(don't expect it to be video editor power tool, but I have seen some projects done on it), GO - is too slow for that. You can try using some app from store for video, but I don't think that this is what you expect to be using for GoPro footage

I bought it seeing some reviews. Complete sluggish software with very small UI elements. Win 10 sucks in this. Very less performance compared to iPad. Slowest virtual keyboard ever. I don't why would anyone buy this. No one deserves this thing. Don't trust reviewers. iPad is cheaper too. Nothing much works on it. Not much apps. Chromebook is way better for price for those who don't like apple. 3rd party small apps could run that's it. Even chrome sucks in this get used to edge. Returned it.
