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.Subscribe:'s a link to buy the Surface Go: we sometimes place affiliate links directly to the best deals in our video descriptions, so we may earn a commission if you buy something.Like The Verge on Facebook: on Twitter: on Instagram: More: http://www.theverge.comCommunity guidelines: to Verge Science on YouTube, a new home base for our explorations into the future of science:

    @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.

    Of course I will use it as it intended. Academic. Reading journals n books, typing simple essay, browsing for research purposes. And when tired of all that, Spotify and Netflix... 😁

    @Pranita N you can do programming on any device. Just make sure it runs Windows Professional. You cannot install software outside of Windows Store on home edition.

    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.

    i have a 4th Gen iPad. it can't update to the latest OS. which means apps would update and i couldn't run them because of the older OS. so id have to connect the iPad to my computer and down grade the apps i wanted to use. was just about to buy a more modern iPad when i decided to get this. now i won't have the old OS problem. and if there was an iPad app thats not on Windows i just use the site.
