Pros and cons

According to our laptop expert
  • With Windows 10 in S mode, one battery charge lasts longer and you can only install programs via the Windows store.
  • You can use this model both as a laptop and a tablet.
  • This laptop is 0.83cm thick and weighs 0.52kg, so it's easy to take with you in your bag.
  • With Windows 10 in S mode, you can only install programs from the Microsoft Store, and not from Google Chrome, for example.
  • This version of the Surface Go has less RAM and storage space than the other models from this series, so you can save fewer files and this edition is noticeably slower.
  • An 10-inch screen is very portable, but a bit small for watching movies or series.

    Great laptop, reasonable tablet and good performance

    Sander van Huizen | 1 September 2018 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Small form factor
    • kickstand
    • Great screen
    • Great performance
    • No included Typecover
    • Windows 10 isn't quite ready for touch yet

    The Microsoft Surface Go is a great laptop (or tablet) for on the go or for students. If you know what you're getting into, the Surface Go is a great laptop. You have to keep in mind that this is not a Surface Pro in terms of performance, when I look at the build of the Go you see that Microsoft has downsized the Surface Pro. And with success! Because you would almost think it's the Pro.

    In terms of performance, it is a great laptop for everyday tasks such as surfing the Internet, Office and media consumption. The heavier programs such as Photoshop and Lightroom work fine, but you should not start on projects with a hundred thousand layers. So you can easily edit your holiday snaps on the Go.

    You can tell it's a Surface, and there are also some premium features in the Go like facial recognition and Tilt with the pen (not tested).

    It is a pity that the Go does not come with a Typecover because it is slightly less as a tablet because there are few apps and because Windows 10 is not completely suitable for touch.

    All in all, it's a great laptop and a slightly less good tablet! And I definitely recommend the Surface Go as a secondary device for on the couch or in school.

    Surface Go 4Gig does exactly what I expected it to do!

    Leon Joha | 31 August 2018 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • nice design
    • 4G version processor fast enough
    • face recognition
    • solid housing
    • keyboard not included as standard
    • no full usb port

    After much deliberation, I chose a 4Gig version.. so far very satisfied with it, coming from an IPad Air 2 you definitely notice that the Surface Go is faster, Windows Home (still in S mode) offers many more options if an iPad can do that. Also bought the black type cover, it types well.
    The speed of the 4Gig Go is anything but disappointing, everything works well, opens quickly and does exactly what I expect it to do.
    A satisfied user here!

    Really a super gadget for versatile use.

    R Visser | 29 December 2019 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Surface ideal to take with you
    • Surface offers all the options of a laptop
    • Surface has long battery life
    • Surface has nice design
    • Surface works better by using pen

    The Surface offers what I was looking for. Also have Surface Pro, but it is just too big for meetings and giving presentations. Really great for personal study. I also bought a returned product. Recommended!

    All the advantages of a tablet and Windows in one ...
    • Speed
    • Windows 10 sync
    • Build quality
    • Battery life
    • Typecover and Pen can be purchased separately and are quite expensive
    • Single USB C port
    • Screen resolution 1800 * 1200, just short of HD

    After having worked on a Surface Pro for a long time to my full satisfaction and after having felt the device at Microsoft Inspire in Las Vegas last year, I was sold ... The Surface Go for me only has the advantages of the Surface Pro included combined with a slightly smaller model that is easy to handle as a tablet.

    To be fair, Windows 10 is not a Tablet OS, but it comes pretty close.

    Having now worked on Android tablets and iPads I have now found what I wanted ... a tablet pc with good performance and a decent build quality.

    The 8GB RAM, 12GB disk and the CPU are more than sufficient to serve as an on-the-go device.

    It's not a device you're going to do heavy graphical business with or heavy gaming or multitasking with, but it's not built for that!

    But basic browsing and office work... 10/10.

    Tip, get the go out of S mode and avoid Google Chrome (Chrome eats CPU)
