So there have been a deluge of positive Microsoft Surface Go reviews as it’s being launched as a entry level tablet/laptop. I’m wondering if any of you plan on getting one and using it with your mechkb. I’ve been looking for a powerful 2-in-1 or tablet that doesn’t require you buying a separate keyboard and the Surface Go, while not being a powerhouse, has a great screen and drawing capabilities (which as a designer I’d like but I realize might be useless with this being not really a powerhouse like the Surface Book 2).
I’m fine bringing my 60/65% with me and not buying the MS keyboard accessory, and using this device as a media/movie player as well as light drawing and productivity (browsing, word, excel, etc). Any thoughts from you guys?
One negative is that traditional laptops allow you to put them on your lap and type away. This obviously won’t be possible with the Surface Go’s kickstand and using a mechkb. You’d have to do it on a table. Also the screen is quite small … but it’s nice and if this is offset by significantly better battery life, I’m ok with it.
Here are some reviews for your reference:
