The form factor is good, but it is also a good way for them to make money by selling you the keyboard separately.

Anyway, here we go again. Another Surface, not sure what issues will linger.

Is the Surface Pen same as the one that's sold for Surface Pro?

I currently uses the SP4 and already have 2 Surface Pens. If it's the same one, then I might consider purchasing the base model for media consumption.

Window 10S not really impressive. You will be better of with a android tablet or iPad. I feel this comes useful if you want a smaller form factor tablet version of a full fledge window. Else the apps support will be frustrating and I believe draining of battery life quite jialat also

Ya, I already know its USD.
Just a joke post.

Read a few first looks, the CPU is some Pentium.
Feels like its low spec but I suppose should be sufficient for couch surfing and office work.

So come SG the price with markup will be $600 to $800+?
Then plus buy extra keyboard attachment and pen with markup...

The good thing about this Surface would be the weight. I currently using the Samsung Galaxy tab Pro S for a while and SSD really help in the nimbleness of the OS. The whole package would be less than 1kg. It great for me to use while on the bus.

Price wise will be on the higher side when you consider the keyboard and pen.

Supposed to have free upgrade to full win 10. So it's a matter of choice to upgrade or not. Was watching a few YouTube videos by Microsoft central. Reviewer days he doesn't upgrade, up to user preference.

I think we just need to wait for a while until the reviews are out. I would definitely want the Full Windows OS as I using office application. The online version is really limited for my use case.

From the verge:

Out of the box, the Go runs Windows 10 with S mode enabled, so it only has access to the Edge browser and apps available in the Microsoft Store. Like other devices that come with S mode, such as the Surface Laptop, owners will be able to switch to the full version of Windows 10 for free if they want.
