Microsoft Surface Go

3.8
Verdict: The small-scale Surface Go from Microsoft recasts the larger Surface Pro two-in-one as a casual computer you can toss in a bag and take anywhere. But, the change in size, price and processing power presents a lot of questions for would-be buyers.
Pros: The Surface Go delivers Microsoft's great Surface design and accessories at a lower price and in a smaller size
Cons: The Pentium processor isn't suited for all tasks. A keyboard cover is a must-have add-on but still sold separately. And you'll probably want to pay extra for more storage and RAM, too. Battery life is lacking for a go-anywhere PC

Microsoft Surface Go : Portable, Purposeful, Not Powerful

No reviews
Verdict: Microsoft's history in the budget tablet space is a bit checkered. Remember Surface RT That was a flop. And other smaller Surfaces just never felt right. But the Surface Go ($349 to start, $549 as tested, before accessories) feels just right.
Pros: Attractive with strong build quality, Bright, vivid display, Affordable starting price
Cons: Short battery life, Doesn't come with keyboard

Microsoft Surface Go 10in 8GB 128GB

No reviews
Verdict: The Surface Go is an odd thing. Not because of the device itself, so much as how Microsoft ultimately arrived at it. The tablet was reverse-engineered, the low-end addition to the premium Surface line.
Pros:

The Microsoft Surface Go Is Practically Perfect

No reviews
Verdict: Look, $550 is a lot of money... unless you're talking computers. Any computer you buy for that little is firmly a "budget" PC, as far as the people making them are concerned. They're not impressive, or especially fast, or pretty. They're purely functional-the Ford Fiesta of computers.
Pros: It's tiny, gorgeous, and more productive than an iPad or other cheap PC
Cons: The CPU is still pretty underwhelming

Microsoft Surface Go review: Going for gold

4.0
Verdict: By rights, the Surface Go shouldn't be that impressive. It's an undersized and under-equipped device that one would assume would be suited mainly to students, but spend some time with it and you'll discover that it's a deceptively versatile little device.
Pros: USB-C support, Super versatile, Great value
Cons: Underwhelming battery life, TypeCover keyboard is expensive

Microsoft Surface Go 10in 8GB 128GB

No reviews
Verdict: The Surface Go is an interesting gadget. It's a better work device than the iPad Pro but can't beat it as pure tablet experience.
Pros: Well built hardware, gorgeous display, flexible hybrid use
Cons: It's not exactly powerful, Type Cover is a still a costly extra, USB-C port lacks Thunderbolt 3, battery life leaves much to be desired, thick bezels date the design

Microsoft Surface Go Review: Productivity On the Move

4.0
Verdict: The line between Ultrabooks and tablets is getting thinner by the day, with tablets getting more powerful and traditional laptops getting leaner. Lately, Microsoft has diverted its attention from software and has been focusing on refining its laptops and convertibles meant to challenge Apple's iPad...
Pros: Vibrant and bright screen, Responsive 10-point touch display, Sturdy build, MicroSD card slot, SSD storage option, Windows Hello support, Dual cameras, Multiple charging options, HDMI Display support (via dongle, Magnetic charging port, Runs basic and casual games, Tactile keyboard, Surface Pen
Cons: No fingerprint sensor, Single USB-C and no full-sized USB port, Average battery, Small keys require practice, Keyboard case and Surface Pen to be bought separately

Microsoft Surface Go review: a little goes a long way

4.2
Verdict: I've been using it for a week now and what I was expecting was a low-end Windows computer to go along with its processor and price. I was expecting to be unimpressed with its small keyboard. We've seen this story before, after all: first with netbooks and then with the original low-end Surfaces.
Pros: Ultra portable, Great keyboard, Good battery life
Cons: Big bezels mean screen is cramped, Dongles, Upgraded model is pricey

Microsoft Surface Go review: Bringing the fun back to Windows

No reviews
Verdict: Conceptually, taking the favorite Surface Pro 2-in-1 PC and shrinking it down to a 10-inch model seems desirable, but with lowering the price and performance of the components there are questions. Is it usable in the lap How good is the performance Can you type well on it Does it even make sense
Pros: Comparatively fast performance, Outstanding build quality and hardware, All day battery life, Excellent display and inking experience
Cons: Windows 10 is still not a great tablet OS, 10-inch PC experience has obvious tradeoffs, No Thunderbolt 3

Cons: Sluggish performance, Janky touchscreen for some apps like Chrome, Keyboard and stylus sold separately, Huge, thick bezels around display

Microsoft Surface Go (Pentium, 64GB eMMC) Tablet Review

3.8
Verdict: Microsoft's Surface Go is a high-quality compact tablet available at a low price. However, do not be fooled by its price if you intend to use the tablet as a full-fledged laptop. In this case, the additional accessories will quickly add up.
Pros: premium quality materials, perfectly made case, very robust chassis, no thermal throttling, bright high-contrast display, very low DeltaE 2000 deviations, high color space coverage, no clouding, microSD card reader, decent battery life, silent
Cons: low in internal storage (64 GB, just one USB-C port, PWM, expensive accessories

Microsoft Surface Go

3.5
Verdict: While I wouldn't make a Surface Go my primary machine for graphical/video creativity work or demanding tasks-Microsoft acknowledges this is not really its place-it's still a fine choice for a lean, mean travel companion.
Pros: Low-cost entry point to the Surface line. Build quality is high. Small, lightweight design. Good potential for education use
Cons: Middling speed. Keyboard is cramped and costs extra. Narrow for on-lap use. No full-size USB ports

Pros: Excellent design, Surprisingly strong graphics, Decent price, Fantastic display and speakers
Cons: Still no accessories included, Less powerful than an iPad, Screen could be sharper

Microsoft Surface Go 10in 8GB 128GB

No reviews
Verdict: Let's face it, the lack of decent Android tablets on the market is an indictment on Google for how they have dropped the ball when it comes to the Android tablet ecosystem. As such this lack of tablets (the Pixel Slate is $700US and not available here) has many of us looking elsewhere to replace...

Microsoft Surface Go review: The ultraportable laptop alternative

4.0
Verdict: Few companies have produced affordable Windows devices that are firstly desirable and secondly portable. So Microsoft has decided it's time to step into the ring with the Surface Go: an entry-level 2-in-1 to the Surface range, sitting below the Surface Pro.
Pros: Highly portable, MicroSD slot and USB-C welcome, Robust kickstand, Excellent optional keyboard
Cons: Accessories up the price a lot, Battery life is middling, Massive bezels, S Mode will be limiting for many

Microsoft Surface Go review: A different kind of Surface

4.0
Verdict: So where does this leave the Surface Go In a unique position, which has its pluses and negatives. On the negative side, you will never get the same range of keenly priced tablet-focused apps as on iOS.
Pros: Excellent keyboard, Superb screen, Well-priced
Cons: Performance can be slow at times, Battery life isn't as good as iPad Pro

Microsoft Surface Go review: a new iPad Pro and Galaxy Tab S4 killer

4.0
Verdict: In the land of the pro tablet, the iPad Pro is king. Well, okay, maybe that depends on whether you count the likes of Microsoft Surface Pro as ‘tablet' or ‘touchscreen PC with optional keyboard', but if we're talking 10-inch traditional tablet form factor, Apple's had it fairly well sewn up.
Pros: Brilliant ergonomics, Fantastic pen and keyboard, Can run full fat Windows 10
Cons: Not as slick app experience compared to rivals

Pros: Windows 10 gives users plenty of freedom, Extremely portable, Kick-stand offers versatility
Cons: Pricey considering Type Cover isn't bundled in, Low-powered performance, Dated design

Microsoft's Surface Go is an iPad rival actually worth caring about

4.5
Verdict: Microsoft's Surface Go isn't the first tablet to be made for use with a keyboard, but it's the best going on this kind of budget. It does a good job as a tablet and an even better one with a Type Cover attached.
Pros: A smart, lightweight design paired with powerful innards
Cons: Screen could be sharper; full suite of accessories is pricey

Great for every day use

4.0
Verdict: I had a Surface 3, the spiritual predecessor of this tablet. The Surface Go is much faster in the 8GB/128GB SSD format. For every day light computing use, the tablet is great and does everything very quickly. Browsing the web, watching videos and running desktop Microsoft Office is all flawless.

Microsoft Surface Go 10in 8GB 128GB

Verdict: I bought this because I thought it might offer the convenience of a tablet but with some of the advantages of a proper PC. It doesn't do too bad, but I would expect a better thought through product for the price. There is a certain randomness to how it behaves which is hard to understand.

Exceeded Expectations

4.0
Verdict: I grabbed a Surface Go a couple of months ago. I needed a tablet to replace my old Surface RT which I really only used as a Kindle to read with. I ended up getting the keyboard and pen for the Surface Go as well and was really impressed. It's more than fast enough to handle web, e-mail and Office.
