Excited for Surface Go? Share your thoughts and questions on our forums.
Chime in with your Surface Go questions, though, and musings on the Windows Central forums!
It's Surface Go launch day, which means devices are showing up on doorsteps and store shelves around the U.S. and Canada. Whether you've picked one up for yourself and want to share your thought, or are considering one and have questions for the early adopters out there, our Surface Go forum is the place to be.
In his review of the device, Windows Central Executive Editor Daniel Rubino found that the Surface Go exceeded his expectations, stating: "The Surface Go is arguably the most fun Surface created yet. It's adorably small, the performance is excellent, battery life respectable and it's a great inking experience."
But, of course, everyone's experience is going to be different. If you want to find out how others are enjoying (or not enjoying) Surface Go, or want to share your own experience, head on over to our forums to chime in.

with Pentium gold processor and 10" screen size,which is the ideal category it can be used for? like student, coder, gaming?
You're likely to be able to use this for word processing, email, spreadsheets, video watching, basic photo editing/viewing, Windows Store gaming, and maybe some light coding using VS Code. The higher-end version would be better suited for more-demanding tasks, though not quite to the level of extreme gaming a laptop or Surface Book/Pro can do. It's a good in-between device.
The 8GB, with type cover and stylus is far too expensive for the average student or school. 800 is a far cry different than the teaser 399. And the lowest end is still 650 plus tax. Without the keyboard and stylus the Surface Go is as useless as a standard iPad in the classroom. A hybrid Chromebook ( or even Win 10) with keyboard and stylus for 200-300 is more in line for educational needs.
This. Edit: I'm already hearing Rubino running up too defend the pricing. ;)
The average student this device is aimed at does not need the higher spec’ed models you are ******** about. The higher spec’ed iPad is priced exactly the same.
