The guy should have use edge browser instead of chrome.

Chrome can be quite slow on unoptimized devices.

Feel like getting one but what do you guys think? I want to edit my RAW files on the go when travelling, do you think it can handle Lightroom and Photoshop?
Not advisable. Firstly, it is really underpowered, and secondly, the storage space is very limited.

Pentium Gold is much better than Atom. It's closer to Core M series.

IMM Challenger has the Surface Go 8GB/128GB model on display. Just played around with it. Not bad.

Yes, spotted at Challenger Vivo, probably in other places as well. Pretty lightweight, nice screen, feels good in the hand.

Unfortunately the keyboard, while high quality, feels too cramped for me. I find the iPad Pro 10.5's smart keyboard just spacious enough, and the Go's keyboard is narrower than that.

Because Surface Go have a 3:2 aspect ratio screen, while iPad uses a 4:3 aspect ratio for their screen. Which means unless they increase the bezel size, the keyboard will have to be smaller.
