Microsoft Surface Go review: surprisingly good

  • The Microsoft Surface Go is a 10-inch Hybrid Windows 10 computer. It's basically a really small Surface Pro. To get it to size, Microsoft had to do a bunch of engineering but also make some compromises from what you might be used to on a bigger machine. We covered a lot of the basics in our last video, so for this review we’re answering a bunch of questions from some of you.


    Here's a link to buy the Surface Go:

    How would your computer habits change if you had this tiny laptop?

    I use it for track prep (setting cues) for future sets. I have also been using it for video dumps from projects we are shooting with action cams. Side note, i also use the Surface go for retro gaming and multi media consummation. I got the 8gb ram 128gb ssd version and so far, I have been very happy with this purchase.

    +Abdul Abbasi You earn more on the App Store in comparison. People, specially young people see MS store as a work only machine and the App Store as a play machine.

    Had the chance to play with one in the MS Store yesterday. Completely blew my expectations away. I wasn't ready to dole out cash - but I'm now fully considering selling my iPad so I can get this. It's super snappy, the pen is fantastic, and the keyboard is REALLY clicky and impressive.
